What kind of clients do you work with?

Do you insure movers outside NY?

Why is your program better?
By selectively insuring only top operational moving companies, we can ensure the program will perform well and as result provide better rates to our clients. Many of the other well known programs work with brokers who aren’t as knowledgeable and tend to take the most suspect of risks into their program. This drives up rates and can sometimes result in losing the carrier all together.
