Angie's List to work with Thimble
Angie's List is integrating with the Thimble API to offer the insurtech's insurance policies directly via the Angie's List platform to pros. Thimble business insurance policies can be purchased in a short time, in rolling monthly increments, by-the-month, by-the-day, or for as little as one hour. Service providers can add workers, extend coverage, pause or cancel policies directly via the Thimble mobile app. Jeremy Stewart, President of Angie's List, says, "We always recommend that consumers verify that any pro they hire has active general liability insurance. We're partnering with Thimble so that businesses who use Angie's List have access to insurance that fits their needs, immediately, so they can complete more jobs and grow their business." The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the need for short-term policies, according to Jay Bregman, CEO and co-founder of Thimble: "Lately, we've been servicing bigger businesses who want to keep their insurance but don't want to commit more than a month at a time. Insurance is no longer a luxury, it's a must-have for businesses that want to succeed on their own terms," he says.
