General Star Launches Online Excess Auto Program

September 8, 2015

General Star Management Co. has enhanced its automated excess auto quoting capabilities with its new web-based Excess Auto Instant Quote (EAIQ) platform. The new platform is available to all appointed casualty wholesale brokers on a nationwide basis. The former EAQQ and DEAL excess auto quoting facilities will be retired. Those users will be moved over to the new EAIQ platform.

Fleets with five or fewer vehicles are eligible for the program, subject to underwriting guidelines. Quotes can be worked up immediately via any web browser. There are no territorial restrictions, and the policy is issued by General Star.

A key new feature is the capability to deliver in-depth management reporting of activity and business development data for both General Star and its appointed wholesale brokers.

Underwritten by General Star’s Casualty Division, excess auto coverage is provided on a non-admitted basis by General Star Indemnity Co. General Star is a wholly-owned subsidiary of General Reinsurance Corporation, a member of the Berkshire Hathaway family of companies.

According to Marty Hacala, pPresident and CEO of General Star, the company is scheduled to launch a number of other web-based initiatives for wholesale clients by year end.

General Star Indemnity Company is an eligible surplus lines insurer in all states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. It has the status as an unlicensed insurer in California and operates under NAIC Number 0031-37362. Insurance is placed with the General Star Indemnity Company by licensed producers and, for risk that qualify, by licensed surplus lines brokers.
