Re: DMV filing and 30 day notice of cancellation

Our new carrier has agreed to rewrite to a later effective date so that was good news for the insured. Oh, and one other item I forgot to mention was that the incumbent sent us a Hold Harmless agreement for our carrier to sign which would hold them harmless from inception of our policy date through ...

DMV filing and 30 day notice of cancellation

OK, so I have a client whom has a commercial fleet of vehicles and had a DMV filing done with their incumbent Auto Carrier. My agency quoted and won their account saving the client close to $20,000. But when he tried to cancel his existing policy, the incumbent is playing hardball and basically exto...

Re: Hard to find market for Knockerball

I would also suggest you try Cossio insurance. They were able to do full GL for me on a Bouncey House account for me so I would think they could do this too... Shagster

Re: distributor of medical supplies in Ca. GL

2 best options:
1) Philadelphia Insurance
2) VGM is an East based program that also writes Ca. risks.

I have used both with several clients and have found no other real competition.

Re: CSR service desk volume

Thank you for the responses. Brenda, you must be Superwoman indeed. As a former Producer I have seen CSRs fail handling half that volume on 30 accounts.... I was truly expecting to need to staff 2-3 CSR's. But I guess to find one of you would then be priceless! Thank you for your input I am amazed a...

Re: "I don't want to tell you my current premiums"

Agreed, most of the time this is going to be a time waster. But, I will give them 2 more chances to cooperate by trying 2 other approaches: 1) Find out if they're shopping multiple Agents, if so walk away. Explain to them they're hurting themselves by shopping multiple agents because the underwriter...

Ca. mobile operations market for Work Comp

Good day all,
I am needing a market to replace Markel on a work comp policy for a mobile paint less dent removal operation in Cali.
No losses, $70,000 payroll. PEO is not an option, any other suggestions will be appreciated.
Thanks,
