Here at InsuranceHub, we’ve always thought of ourselves as being a big family. And today we’re pleased to announce that Atlanta Insurance Mart has merged with InsuranceHub, so they are now a part of our InsuranceHub family! Louis Zurzolo and Atlanta Insurance Mart have long served clients in Georgia and the Southeast and helped them with their insurance needs. The agency has been around for over 30 years, and they take pride in the work they do and in the relationships they’ve formed.
Managers and executives at InsuranceHub are a far cry from unapproachable. So, it’s no wonder Chrisann Richards (the powerhouse over our agency’s Transportation, Commercial Accounts, and Personal Lines Insurance divisions) was just able to wave me over between assisting an agent with their customer’s insurance experience and an impromptu executive meeting.
We’re all one big family at InsuranceHub, and we’re so glad that we get to work together as a team. There are a lot of us in the office, and we’ve all proved in one way or another that all roads lead to insurance. Everyone has a different story and a different path. We caught up with one of our spectacular Senior Account Managers, Angie Cooper, to learn about her story – how she got her start in insurance, her time at InsuranceHub, what she loves about her job, and what a day in the life of Angie looks like.
At InsuranceHub, we believe in continuing education. Insurance is a constantly changing industry, and we like to stay up-to-date on the latest trends, technologies, and knowledge. There’s always something to learn about insurance, especially when it comes to transportation insurance. It’s a very specialized niche, and there’s always plenty to discover. That’s why we’ve got six team members – Lee LeBaigue, Ed Hemmer, Monica Lott, Chrisann Richards, Kristina Insley, and Robyn Roberts – headed to Orlando to attend the annual MCIEF (Motor Carrier Insurance Education Foundation) Conference! The MCIEF meeting is from Oct. 3 to Oct. 4, and our team is really looking forward to it.
The road is not the safest workplace. Wrecks happen. Truckers, who spend a ton of time on the road, are at risk for getting into wrecks, what with the many miles they log on the highway. Today we’re going to take a brief news story out of Virginia about a tractor-trailer wreck. We’ll explain what happened while also discussing several questions the article left us with from an insurance perspective.
The Fourth of July is a time for celebration, family, and summer fun. Maybe you get some time off work in observance of the holiday and you’re looking forward to relaxing, grilling out, and watching some fireworks. Sure, July 4th is a great time, but you also need to be sure to be safe. Check out the following reminders so you can have a happy and safe Fourth of July.
Wrecks happen. They just do. And that’s what insurance is for. It’s so important for businesses that do auto transport to have the right insurance for their car carriers. We’ll take a look at a news story from last week about a car carrier, and we’ll examine it from an insurance angle, exploring what coverages would be helpful and what questions we have.
For truck drivers, whose job it is to, well, drive, the road can turn into an extremely dangerous place. Wrecks and crashes happen, and there are a lot of hazards out there – from bad weather and slick roads to other drivers to traffic. Today we’ll take a look at a tank truck wreck that occurred in Arlington, Texas by giving an overview of what happened, presenting some questions we have from an insurance perspective, and going through some of the coverages that could help this trucking business recover.
So, usually, we have a little introduction to articles where we take a real-life news story and examine it from an insurance angle. But with this one, it seems easier just to dive into the “what happened” section. Basically, a semi-truck exploded.
If you’re in the trucking industry, the possibility of having an accident is probably a very real fear. Crazy things happen on the road all the time, and driving a truck is not easy. In the course of a split second, what started out as a normal drive can take a horrible (metaphorical) turn and become a bit of a disaster. We’re going to explore one such story. It involves a tanker truck and some milk.
