Re: Certs - when will agents all get on the same page

Yep since 1984 I have given that speech a thousand times and a thousand times I get a COI request after the contract has been signed. The deal is "supposed" to be that I read the contract first. I wonder if it would be helpful at all to sign engagement contracts with insureds, that indemn...

NY NJ PA MD DE Local trucking markets

In the above cited area, I'm trying to determine what carriers are players for local and intermediate trucking, especially for 1-10 unit risks. Don't have a specific risk right now, I'm just looking to see what the market base (and the wholesalers through which they would be accessed) is. I'm very f...
