Don’t let your Commercial clients down

This content has not been rated yet.
Are you like most other agents, without a sizable specialty commercial book, but you have the occasional dry cleaner, convenience store, grocer, and restaurant client?

You probably take this specialty business to your existing standard carriers – Travelers, Hartford, etc., and, if you do, you are doing your clients a disservice!

Standard Carriers do not offer the specialty coverages and industry specific markets that IWA does. Nor do they provide you with the personal attention and competitive rates that we do. At IWA, we help your clients feel special and provide the resources and support that a standard commercial carrier just cannot provide. As a result, your clients cherish their relationship with you and bring you referrals, renewals, and more business.

Not only are our commissions and rates competitive; but we also understand these special risks and can guide you through the process to open up new markets and opportunities for you and your agency!

Here are a few key areas you can leverage our expertise in and look like a hero to your clients and prospects:
  • FabriCare Advantage - Insuring the Needs of Dry Cleaners, Commercial Launderers, Linen Supply and Uniform Rental Businesses
