But the price of the policy isn't always the whole picture. Some insurance carriers charge a very small fee upfront but have many other fees such as processing fees, inspection fees, documentation fees, etc which will take the price through the roof. Just another reason why working with an experienced independent agency like ours can help.
2. Stability: professional companies such as Standard & Poor’s Insurance Rating Services, AM Best, Weiss Research, etc rate all insurance companies’ performances. Make it a point to get sufficient information about the company you choose for your business. Be warned that there are millions of scams out there and unless you are very careful, you will end up in many more woes than without insurance. Be careful when you make the decision – a wrong decision can be the road to bankruptcy.
3. Service: Everyone buying anything wants the best value for their money. When it comes to insurance the best value is synonymous with service. You can decide how good your company is by the way they answer to your queries and their patience in explaining the nitty-gritty of the insurance policy and its alternatives. You can also gauge the quality of their service by asking a qualified agent who has experience with many customers using that carrier. Once you sign with the insurance company, you cannot do much if you find it giving you horrible service. Be sure before hand.
4. Be informed: All insurance companies need to be registered with the National Insurance Producer Registry. You should not look at insurance companies with a rating of less than B+ as they might be spelling trouble. You want to make sure there is no major problems with your company; you need to check it out here whether the insurance company has any complaints against it. The Registry will also confirm the validity of the complaints and you can get a pretty accurate picture about the said insurance company from here.
