What to Look for in an Insurance Agency
When you’re searching for an insurance company for your medical transport business, the most important factor you need to consider is their reliability. If one of your ambulances is in an accident, you want to be certain that your insurance company has your back. That’s why, when an agent recommends a company, it’s crucial to check that prospective company’s rating on A.M. Best or Moody’s. Work with your agent to get the most reliable company possible.
Price is obviously one of the biggest things you’ll consider when comparing insurance companies, but it shouldn’t be the only thing you’re considering. Don’t look for the cheapest price, look for the fairest price.
