A quick tally on the pulse of the insurance professionals who specialize in placing insurance for the trucking industry reveals a strong need for quality sales people.
A regional business development manager from Great American Insurance Company recently stated that the brokers he works with are all looking for new producers, or sales people.
This is an interesting development as this form of insurance sales is a great place to be working in; as far as insurance sales go. The cost of truck insurance is relatively expensive and the commissions can add up fast as compared to personal auto or homeowners insurance sales. The sales person needs to understand the trucking industry, commercial trucks, and the appropriate insurance coverage needed but this is relatively simple and can be learned in depth within 6 months.
Good sales people, especially those already in insurance, should hunt down the high quality brokers who specialize in this line of insurance. Take a look at this commercial truck insurance sales ad.
