Joe Hinke of JA Hinke and Company presented to the BIZ networking group today on the subject of Business Insurance. He had a couple great tips for businesses:
- Find an insurance carrier that specializes in your type of business. If you are a technology company, do not pick a carrier that specializes in agriculture!
- Stay with a single agent for all insurance to provide maximum leverage in
negotiating the minimum price
- Check the references of the agent you are thinking about using
- In Iowa check with the Independent Insurance Agents of Iowa for a good referral to an agent.
Joe had a lot of useful information on the insurance buying process. You can find his complete presentation here.
