Have you ever stopped to wonder what exactly happens when you order a hole-in-one insurance, putting contest or million dollar shootout policy? We’re here today to explain the process to you and hopefully give you a better understanding of how Hole In One International’s process works!
Requesting the Quote
After you have called or emailed us for a free, no-obligation quote, we will either email, fax or send your quote via regular mail, depending on what your preference is. Once you’ve filled out the necessary paperwork and have sent it back to us (again, via email, fax or snail mail) with payment, it then goes to our accounting department!
Binding the Coverage
Our accounting department will then bind the coverage — which simply means they will process your payment. Your account status will then change from ‘Pending’ in our system to ‘Sold’, which means the insurance has been paid for and is in place. At this point, you will receive a confirmation stating that your coverage has been bound. Accounting will then take the sign order form attached to your paperwork (if applicable) and give it to one of our experienced sign-makers.
Making the Signage: Beginning Stages
An individual from our team will provide artwork for your prize description and then type out the sponsor name which will fill up the 11×17″ printed area of your tee sign. Or, if you have sent us a logo, they will blow up the image to fit the 11×17″ printed area and print it out. Once the prize description and sponsor’s name have been printed, the sheets go downstairs to our shipping department.
Making the Signage: Final Stages (& Shipping)
The shipping department will take the two sheets and they will be applied to our standard tee sign. Keep in mind: this sign may look a bit different if you are insuring a putting contest. The shipping department will then put your sign into a box with up to 4 of our non-target auxiliary prize signs as well as a coupon for a free tee prize for each golfer in your event (note: these are not included with shootouts or putting contests) and ship them to the specified location on your sign order form via UPS. You will be sent a tracking number and will be able to track your signs as soon as they leave our location at the end of the business day.
