Finish this sentence in regard to your business: I wish I could...

I wish I could impress upon the public how insurance is not a commodity or product and should not be perceived as such, it’s a professional service and a relationship business. This becomes apparent after a large loss occurs, which is where our knowledge and expertise becomes apparent. We become your advocates, and we have local knowledge that cannot be imparted from a faceless out-of-state claim representative from an 800 number. We know the steps in the process, we interact with the various parties involved in the process, and we advise along the way. We know who the good local clean-up contractors and repair shops are, and we know which ones to avoid.  

Best selling products or services?

We work with over 30 directly-appointed insurance companies who offer a myriad of coverages to insure a very broad range of situations. Our best-selling product is our trade contractors insurance, restaurant insurance, non-profit insurance including events, medium risk payroll-based worker’s comp program, and of course home insurance, auto and umbrella liability insurance.

The Insurance Center is located at 6 Stony Hill Road, Suite 210 in Bethel. Visit The Insurance Center online here.
