Testimonials

"Everyone we work with on the commercial lines team at George Petersen Insurance Agency is extremely helpful and gets us the answers we need. I would highly recommend their agency to any subcontractor."

“We like having a dedicated, knowledgeable company in our corner. By reviewing our contracts regarding insurance and indemnification before we sign, they help keep us out of frivolous lawsuits. There is a whole team at GP that is there to make sure we are always taken care of – they are like family to us.”

"Having been in business for over 15 years, I understand the necessity of being properly insured. What I never came to realize is how being properly cared for by your insurance company could make running a business so much easier and more profitable. I thought it was all about coverage limits and premiums. What I have come to find out is how different an insurance company can stand apart when you actually need their services. In the time I have worked with George Petersen insurance agency, I have experienced a peace of mind that comes with both being comprehensively insured and having a team of professionals available as a resource. A team that proactively gives updates when action is needed or policy changes are felt appropriate. It is like opening a risk management department for your business. Between the attainability of George Petersen staff when I have a concern, to the professional and courteous manner they conduct business, my only regret is wondering where I would be today as a business if I had only met them sooner. I wholeheartedly recommend you reach out today and see what they can do for you."
