There are 5 steps: (1) submit your application; (2) A premium indication including an estimate of costs and description of coverage is forwarded to you in 2 business days; (3) if the indication includes a request for additional information, send such information promptly (4) a premium quotation for coverage is forwarded to you promptly; (5) you tell us if you want us to put the coverage into effect.
Can I speak with someone "live" during this process? How do I contact you? Do you have a toll-free number?

Once I'm a customer, who will be servicing my account? How do I request certificates of insurance for landlords, lenders, or others, and make billing inquiries?
An account servicing representative, expert in your industry, will be assigned to handle all service functions and will be available by e-mail, phone, or fax, or when possible in person. We strive to build personal relationships with our customers.
What are my options for premium payments?
Prior to putting coverage into effect, we will require a down payment of typically 20-25% of the annual premium. We accept checks, money orders and will have an online credit card option available soon. The balance of the premium typically is paid via a premium finance agreement with 9 monthly installments.
