Traditional Service Quote
Obtaining a traditional service quote involves connecting with one of our experienced brokers.
To provide you with the proper assistance, a broker will learn all about your business, to present you with more customized quotes and coverage. Your broker obtains multiple quotes from different insurers, doing the shopping for you.
From there, you and your Broker will discuss the quote options and explain the different coverages and limitations based on your questions. You choose the coverage combinations that are right for your business.
Your insurance broker is there for you throughout the year to discuss your coverage, changes to your business, review insurance provisions of contracts, issuing certificates, etc.
If your business or profession has more complex risks, speaking to a broker through our traditional quote option is recommended.
