With commercial insurance quote applications, a currently dated Loss History Report (also called Loss Runs) for the last 5 years of coverage, is required. For buildings, we need information about the property, including rental income, the condition and age of the roof, electric, plumbing, heating, and windows. Additionally, we ask that you send a copy of your current policy for reference and review.

With all personal lines quote applications, we are required to submit the SS# and Date of Birth of the applicant, along with information about the location.

Business owners will be required to provide the loss history report and additional information related to business operations.

Why has my insurance premium increased so much more over the last couple of years?

Several factors have contributed to the insurance industry’s market-wide increases in more recent years. Many insurance companies have been impacted by an increase in claims nationwide, resulting in a steady and significant rise in insurance premiums. Additionally, replacement cost values are up due to the inflated costs associated with construction labor, materials, and supply chain issues.

Commercial property & casualty lines of coverage, and particularly apartment buildings, are among those most affected. Multiple insurance carriers are focused on minimizing their exposure, to maintain financial stability, by eliminating certain types of policies from their portfolio of business, or no longer offering coverage in particular states. These changes cause more limited access to insurance companies or products, and allow market premiums to rise exponentially.
