With delegated authority from Lloyd’s and Great Lakes, we take the underwriting decision at our desk. Our customers do not have to wait for us to visit underwriters for an answer.

We can underwrite commercial and private passenger, short and long haul operations, single units – fleets, trailer interchange, hired auto and towing / storage.

Coverage can be on a scheduled or reporting basis depending on fleet size.
