Our size and market clout allow us to negotiate the most favorable pricing and terms
Let’s face it, insurance is a relationship business. To use a legal analogy, think about us as the lawyer who knows the judge. Most agents’ sales pitch revolves around their markets: “We have access to 20 truck markets so can shop around to get you the lowest rate”. While market access is important, we think that relationships with your underwriters are more important. Our advantage is that we can secure the most competitive terms from our insurance markets using our knowledge, experience and reputation.
Our staff makes the difference
Our people are our biggest advantage. Our staff has a thorough understanding of the trucking industry. All of our agents go through a specialized training to stay updated on trucking regulations and insurance coverage updates. If you have a question– simply call us. We may not have all the answers, but we’ll do our best to find out.
We believe in integrity, honesty and long-term business relationships
Don’t you want to make sure that you work with a financially stable and honest agency? We thing you should, since we stand between you and the insurance company. After all, we collect your premium dollars and you count on us in a time of need.
We offer safety consulting to help you reduce your cost of risk
Most agents consider their job to be done after the sale is made and the certificate of insurance is delivered to the client. We believe our job doesn’t end with the sale; it actually begins here. With our in-house safety engineers, we can help you improve your safety, reduce accidents and ultimately lower your cost of insurance. Each one of our clients receives a complimentary access to a safety consultant, monthly webinars and access to one of industry’s most comprehensive library of articles and practical tips.
We review insurance contracts to help you avoid “coverage traps”
When was the last time your agent reviewed your owner-operator agreement, vehicle lease agreement or shipping documents? Properly designed agreements can reduce your liability, therefore reducing your exposure and premiums. We don’t believe in the “one size fits all” approach when it comes to your truck operation. Our goal is to design a rock solid insurance program tailored to your specific needs.
We bring value to your insurance program
Let’s face it, everyone wants good quality coverage and service for a good price. Most agents focus on price but they sometimes they “forget” the value aspect of their client’s insurance program. As you know, not all insurance policies are created equal and all policies have exclusions. Our goal is to offer you the best value for your premium dollar.
