“Exceptional service. I am quite impressed with my helpful & informed representative, who politely persevered through my busy schedule to make sure he called back exactly when I requested, twice, which is a big part of why you got my business, along with your value for money & reputation among fellow business owners. To be honest though, many broker agencies just didn’t engage as well with me, well done with your service training, I?m very happy with your staff & while I hope I never need to make a claim, I feel confident he would make my interaction as painless as possible if I did. Thank you.”
