FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. — RouteOne announced Wednesday that it has completed integration with InsureExpress, a leader in point-of-sale auto insurance.
InsureExpress, based in Encino, Calif., said it has been providing guaranteed auto insurance coverage via dealers for more than 20 years.
"The integration with best-in-class providers such as InsureExpress offers RouteOne's dealership customers important compliance and protection solutions needed to expedite vehicle deliveries while providing an important customer service," explained Mike Jurecki, RouteOne's chief executive officer.
The integration was completed to provide maximum efficiency and compliance for dealers when faced with an uninsured buyer, officials said.
Basically, each customer who needs insurance to close a vehicle purchase is electronically referred through a secure, encrypted process from the RouteOne system directly to InsureExpress for immediate processing, executives indicated.
Moreover, the company said that the insurance process is fast and coverage is guaranteed for every licensed driver, regardless of age or driving history. Proof of coverage is provided immediately, which means dealerships will never lose a sale for lack of auto insurance, according to the company.
"We have been refining and improving InsureExpress for over 20 years and have come out with a real winner — proven value and protection for the customer, the lender, the dealer and the public at large," said Brian Murphy, president of InsureExpress.
"We provide a safe, easy and affordable alternative for customers who might otherwise be unable to maintain the required insurance coverage," he continued.
