Communications From Grand General

As most of you know we fax our Grand Laffs out every week on Tuesday. Did you know that once a month we send out a product email highlighting one of the products we provide? In that email you will be informed of the product, coverages and any additional information we think would be helpful. Our product email is usually emailed out on the first Thursday of the month. We also send an email out on the third Thursday of the month called News You Need! This email lets you know about changes the companies are making along with valuable information regarding products. Sometimes there will be information regarding a contest we are having, or our holiday hours.

Stay tuned for the emails and Grand Laffs. We want you to stay informed, and have all the up to date information. As always, give us a call if you have any questions. 1-800-869-2022

Why Should You Write The Toys On Their Own Policies?

Boats, Jet Skis, Campers, ORV's, Snowmobiles...many companies are now allowing clients to add these to their home and auto policies. Is it a good idea though?

Many of these toys really need their own policies for a number of reasons. Perhaps they are too expensive, or too fast, or too big or just too specialized for just doing a quick add-on to another policy. They need the fine tuning of a customized policy for things like additional equipment, higher liability coverages or lower deductibles. All of these changes can really enhance the policy.

How about when it comes time to file a claim? Would it be better if claims are on a separate policy or as a claim on a home or auto policy? What happens to the auto and home policy if you start adding claims for the toys? Put the toys on their own policies and you can eliminate a lot of hassle.

Grand General writes the toys on stand-alone policies. Wouldn't it be better for your client and your agency if the toys didn't affect your primary lines/carriers? Give Grand General a call at 1-800-869-2022!
