wg_commercialAs a business owner, you understand the importance of protecting yourself against the exposures that exist while operating your company. The value of comprehensive Property and Casualty coverage that is tailored for your industry can make the difference between having coverage for a claim and having to pay for a costly loss out of your own pocket. Unfortunately, in most cases, it takes the reality of an uncovered loss for many company owners and managers to finally have an expert review their current insurance coverages. At Whitmore, we pride ourselves on offering solutions to the problems of business owners and these solutions lead to the creation of long-term relationships with our clients.

The Whitmore Group’s Commercial Insurance staff has coordinated the Property & Casualty insurance coverages for some of the most intricate industry classes. We understand the need to identify each of the exposures you face everyday and then review your current insurance coverages to ensure that you have the proper protection. Following our review of your current insurance program, we will recommend a structure for your coverages that will benefit you – and your company – economically and efficiently.

Whitmore has a significant understanding of each insurance company’s underwriting appetite and we won’t waste time by approaching every insurance company just so we can tell you we did! Instead, we will identify the insurance companies best suited to provide coverage for your type of business and negotiate the most favorable pricing and terms on your behalf. Whitmore has extensive brokerage relationships with each of the nation’s most reputable and financially stable insurance carriers which affords us the ability to place your coverage with the most appropriate company.

Knowing that your assets are protected and that your coverage is provided by an insurance company that will be around to pay for claims will provide you with the peace of mind that enables you to focus on your business – not your insurance.

Whether you are a wholesaler, a financial or educational institution, a service operation or a law firm, Whitmore can evaluate your current insurance program and propose a more comprehensive and more affordable insurance option without sacrificing coverage.
