BikeInsure Continues to Expand Partnerships: Adds Montgomery Cyclery
ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE / BikeInsure, an insurtech company specializing in bicycle insurance for cyclists in the United States, is excited to announce that it has expanded its partnerships with Montgomery Cyclery, family owned and operated since 1965. As a result, bicycle and eBike owners across the Cincinnati metropolitan area will have access to standardized bike insurance. Montgomery Cyclery promotes fun and healthy lifestyle choices for people who enjoy riding. Now, bicycle shop customers can obtain bike insurance for their bicycle or eBike with optional theft protection quickly as it is to get for your smartphone in just a few minutes.
Today's cyclists need a standalone insurance coverage policy to protect their Bikes. BikeInsure provides reimbursement for repairs to your bicycle and listed accessories due to accidents when riding. Coverage continues during the transit of the bicycle and extends to a stolen bike when optional theft protection is selected.
"It is a common fact that people who own a car are 'required' to have auto insurance. Unfortunately, since there is no requirement for bike insurance, cyclists often have a false assumption that their bicycle has coverage.” said BikeInsure CEO Buzzy Cohn. “Montgomery Cyclery will be informative advocates qualifying the 'need' for bike owners in their bicycle shops to have bike insurance. Customers will be referred directly to BikeInsure for sign-up, which takes about two minutes."
“Montgomery Cyclery has been in the business of caring for our customers and their bicycles since 1965,” said Montgomery Cyclery President Eric Mueller. “As a result, I am constantly looking for new products to improve our customer care. So, when Buzzy told me about BikeInsure, I couldn’t believe it. BikeInsure can cover your bike not only after an accident for less than my cell phone insurance but also if your bicycle gets stolen with their optional theft protection. It’s the best new product I’ve seen in years.”
BikeInsure is leveraging eCommerce technology to transform how cyclists in the United States buy and experience bike insurance to make it simple and affordable. Licensed insurance producer BikeInsure is administering the insurance plan, underwritten by carrier Great American Insurance Company, rated "A+" (Superior) by AM Best, anauthorized insurer in all 50 states and Washington DC.
