Below is a brief overview of the different kinds of business insurance we offer.

Business Property & Auto Insurance

Business property insurance helps protect not only the property of your business, but also all the property that your business owns or leases. This includes items such as medical equipment, inventory, furniture, fixtures, and related assets. Whether those assets be computers, media, marketing collateral, or records, we have you covered.

Transportation Insurance

We are able to manage risk for your transportation company, large or small, and our staff is constantly trained especially for the transportation industry. The regulatory climate is always evolving and our agents evolve with the times to offer our clients the service and expertise that exceeds expectations.

Surety Bonds

A surety bond is a contract between three parties: the principal, the surety, and the obligee. The principal is usually a contractor, the obligee is usually a third-party ensuring completion of the work, and the surety is the insurance agency guaranteeing the bond should it need paid out.

Umbrella Insurance

Commercial Umbrella policies provide an insured with an extra umbrella of liability of protection over the primarily liability insurance. Most umbrella policies require an insured to initially purchase liability insurance coverage to be able to purchase an addition umbrella insurance policy.

Disability & Workers Compensation

Nearly 18.5% of Americans are currently living with a disability, and 1 out of every 4 people in the US workforce will suffer a disabling injury before retirement. These facts can be startling, and on top of that, each disability insurance type has specific rules as to how someone qualifies to receive the benefit and if it is considered a short-term or long-term disability. These factors and more dictate exactly how much is paid out and over time period the disbursements cover.

Inland Marine Insurance

Inland marine insurance indemnifies loss to movable or specialized types of property. Historically developing as an outgrowth of ocean marine insurance to cover goods in transit over large bodies of water, commercial inland marine coverage typically covers property being transported on land. Inland Marine insurance has since evolved to cover a broad range of miscellaneous types of property not only in transit, but also onsite too.

Professional Liability

Professional Liability coverage is to protect professionals (such as accountants, attorneys) against liability incurred as resulting from errors and omissions in performing professional services. There are exceptions (physicians, architects, and engineers), most professional liability coverages only protect economic or financial losses suffered by third parties, as opposed to bodily injury (BI) and property damage (PD) claims.
