John's Glass Takes on "Insurance Harvesters"

John's Glass Takes On "Insurance Harvesters"

Customers of John's Glass Co. recently received their copy of "Looking Glass", the company's quarterly newsletter, and it might interest the industry to know that the glass company is introducing the phrase "insurance harvester."

In the summer issue, the glass company defines the phrase as "people who position themselves at malls, banks and even county fairs and try to convince people to buy insurance."

The newsletter does tell its readership that these "insurance harvesters" could be genuinely pointing out a legitimate insurance need and sale, but advises customers to be careful, as "there have been harvesters who have misrepresented themselves to the Coalition Against Cheap Insurance."

Insureds are warned to look for indications of potential scams such as "the sale of overvalued policies, inflation of claims of coverages and charges for phantom coverages."

The company states that it will perform top quality auto glass repair and replacement using trained personel and top quality materials and parts, if that is what is needed, but that these insurance harvesters may only pay for low quality parts, material and labor while claiming it is the rate for top quality.

Good for the Goose, Good for the Gander, I say.
