Polaris Chooses Progressive as Preferred Powersports Insurance Provider

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – December 2, 2011 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Polaris has chosen Progressive® Insurance as its preferred ATV, Side x Side, snowmobile and neighborhood vehicle insurer. By joining forces, Progressive—one of the country’s leading insurance providers—and Polaris—a leader in the power sports industry—are making it easier for riders to get coverage that protects them and their vehicles, both on and off their property.

“We’re working together so it’s not only easier for Polaris owners to buy affordable insurance, but to really understand what they’re buying,” said Progressive Product Manager, Charlotte Elek. “We’re available anytime by phone; and our website is filled with information to help Polaris owners make even smarter choices about coverage that protects them and their vehicle.”

“We are very excited to partner with Progressive,” said Polaris Financial Services Manager Kelly Clawson. “They will be able to serve our riders with years of power sports knowledge and experience.”

In addition to making it easy to understand and buy coverage, Progressive helps Polaris owners save and manage their money through a variety of features:

  • A variety of discounts—Customers save if they own a home, have a clean driving record, complete a safety course, pay in full—and more.
  • Disappearing deductibles—Customers reward themselves with a 25 percent reduction in their deductible for each claim-free renewal period. After four claim-free renewals, the deductible disappears altogether. Progressive offers this currently in 24 states, and will roll it out to all states in coming months.
  • Easy payment options—Customers can choose to pay in full; or pay in installments by electronic funds transfer, mail, online or over the phone.
