We have relied on you to be our: advisor, tough negotiator, claims manager, and once we even needed help getting out of a claim that wasn’t ours. The Continental team has a very deep understanding of us, our history, our business operations and our business practices. That level of deep understanding could have only been developed as a result of a tremendous level of dedication to customer service.
