Will Amazon Bring Up Insurance Rates?

JoTo PR Client, Quadrant Information Systems, was featured in the Detroit Free Press article on the effects of the insurance market due to Amazon and Wal-Mart’s new delivery methods. This article was called Will Amazon Delivery App Raise Home Insurance Rates?

Technology is always advancing and currently at a rate that is faster than ever before. Amazon and Wal-Mart are testing software for Smart-Locks which would allow homeowners to place them on their doors and let the big-chain retailers deliver goods into their homes, and even into their refrigerator. This raises questions of liability among home insurers.

Quadrant CEO, Michael Macauley, had this to say: “In any of those situations, will Amazon be held liable or will the homeowner be at fault?Amazon Key is still in the early stages — there are so many questions surrounding liability if a problem were to occur during delivery.”
