Expertise On How to Protect and Grow Your Business on The Road.
When navigating the complex roads of trucking and transportation, you need an insurance agent who knows the unique risks of your industry. “I tried three or four different insurance agencies and none of them had the expertise I was looking for,” says Marcus Sibley, President of Sibley Transportation. “I met Ed (Therrien, United Insurance Senior Vice President & Transportation Director), through a friend and he brought a huge amount of knowledge to the table. In a prior life, he managed 200 trucks, so he knows what it takes and what insurance carriers are looking for.” With Ed and United Insurance’s guidance, Marcus put safety policies and procedures in place that enabled the desired growth for his business. “Safety is a substantial investment; it costs money. But it saves money in the long term. We’ve grown substantially – from two trucks in 2010 to now closing in on thirty trucks. A lot of the credit goes to Ed. He’s the type of agent I can call at 9pm to ask his opinion about certain situations. That’s a big deal for me as a young business owner. Ed is always pushing me to do better. He really wants to see us be successful,” shares Marcus.
Trucking is a unique business with unique risks. That’s why our agents only work with a select group of independent carriers that are focused on both fleet and non-fleet trucks operations.
With access to policies designed by professionals with years of experience addressing unique and ever changing trucking risks, United Insurance has the products and knowledge to provide coverage plans for your transportation business.
