Hard-to-place workers’ compensation coverage found here at Valiant
If you’ve written commercial lines for long, you’ve come across this issue: shopping multiple carriers, MGAs and wholesalers to find one whose appetite matches your client’s needs. Perhaps your client is a roofer, a foundry, a landscaping company or a long-distance trucking company – you know, the ones with hard-to-place workers’ compensation coverage.
Add to that the fact that navigating the marketplace to find a top-rated carrier to accept your business is time-consuming, taking you away from serving other clients, getting new business – and making more money. It’s enough to make you avoid those clients altogether, even when you can write their more lucrative general liability.
Enter Valiant Insurance Services: a new breed of aggregator, specializing in finding alternative top markets for your hard-to-place workers’ compensation submissions. Valiant was founded by Arrowhead General Insurance Agency, Inc., expressly for your submissions that fall outside their program parameters. Our network of top-rated carriers provides coverage for even hard-to-place markets such as trucking and companies with a variety of multi-state exposures.
What makes us different?
First, our access to top markets: We work only with “A” rated carriers. Then add to that:
- We offer 250 classes of business, including hard-to-place workers’ compensation class codes such as roofers, tree trimming or foundries
- We accept high experience mods
- We specialize in multi-state accounts
- New ventures are considered
- We’ve streamlined a quick clearance process to secure the account for you
As we expand our carrier network, we will continue to roll out new specialties with competitive commissions. From freight handlers to auto assembly, cement manufacturing to boat shops, we’ve got you covered. View our partial list of class codes, or contact us with specific questions.
