Why Insurance Producers Choose Prime Insurance Company

When you are looking for the best property/casualty insurance carrier, you need not look any further than Prime Insurance Company. We are one of the best insurance companies for insurance agents because we do things differently than many other companies out there, ensuring that we are insurance agent friendly with a focus on partnership.

Specialty and Declined Risk Coverage

As an insurance producer, you know that it’s far easier to get coverage for low-risk insureds than it is to find adequate solutions for specialty and declined risks. To offer your best to your clients, you need to stand out from the competition. We help you do that as an excess and surplus lines insurance company.

With Prime Insurance Company, you will get fast and flexible underwriting even for specialty or hard-to-place risks. From commercial general liability to garage liability, personal lines, commercial auto, specialty liability, and professional liability, we provide suitable coverage for any risk.

Our model focuses on highly customized insurance solutions. There are countless carriers out there who manage one-size-fits-all, standard insurance risks. We are here to fill in the gaps where those carriers will not.

When you look at our product lines, you will see many areas of coverage that other carriers have excluded. On a commercial level, we cover areas like inflatables and winter operations, inland marine, garage liability and towing, and professional liability for professionals ranging from accountants to police officers to tax preparers. We even offer professional liability coverage for insurance agents.

Our personal lines are applicable to nearly any situation you can think of. Even if something is not directly listed, it’s worth talking to our team as we specialize in creating custom insurance solutions for our producers. If your clients are involved with AcroYoga, exotic pets, foster parenting, volunteering, or other potentially risky personal undertakings, we are here to help.

Where other carriers have found that a risk is undesirable, even if it has to do with adverse claims, loss history, or other unique circumstances, we are willing to take a closer look with the guidance of skilled underwriters and hard-earned expertise. If a client has been turned down before, we’re your best property/casualty insurance carrier to give them coverage and keep them happy with you as an insurance producer.

Even though we work with risky situations, we are highly skilled in risk management in partnership with our producers. Our risk managers take their roles very seriously, carefully inspecting, evaluating, and researching to offer the expertise, guidelines, and recommendations that provide peace of mind while preventing costly claims. And, if there is a claim, our in-house team works quickly to handle the situation for your clients fairly and quickly.

We know that insurance producers are the most successful when they have options, and we believe that our success depends on yours. That’s why we partner with producers to expand insurance options even for challenging situations.
