The team at Continental Underwriters understands the concept of “bringing value” to the insured and their agency partners when designing an insurance program for their clients.  Their expertise in the wood products industry helped them improve the overall property coverage of our insured specifically regarding the business income limits and stock through-put policy.  They offered unique insight into the nuances of these coverages and the insured received broader coverage for their exposure for a comparable premium. The entire team is focused on professional service that is best in class.
