The Horton Group Selected as Finalist for Broker Team of the Year

Tuesday, March 6, 2018

The Horton Group is pleased to announce that the Moving & Storage Practice team was selected as a finalist for Business Insurance U.S. Insurance Awards Broker Team of the Year. The award profiles teams of professionals in the commercial insurance and risk management sector. Horton is one of five finalists for this distinguished honor. 

The Moving & Storage practice is composed of insurance and risk management professionals with deep expertise and many years of experience in the industry.

In recent years, the moving & storage sector has truly diversified itself. Owners endure the weight of wearing multiple hats while managing limited resources. Profit margins are thin, and insurance premiums are high. With all of the competition in the market, taking on tough jobs is essential for a competitive advantage. Through the expertise of Curt Emery, Tony Hopkins, Christine Webb and the Moving & Storage team, clients are kept up to date on the evolving risks the industry faces, allowing them to focus on growing their business.

“We utilize a variety of tools to assist our clients with strategies to reduce their premiums such as in-depth safety assessments, experience modification monitoring, pre-employment strength testing, claims management and analysis,” said Webb. “For example, we’ve helped two particular customers drop their mod ratings: one from 1.78 to 1.00 and another from 1.43 to 0.85. Collectively, this helped them save hundreds of thousands of dollars in premium.”

It’s not just about premium savings, sometimes it’s about providing unique solutions on a tight timeframe. Building strong carrier relationships are another way Horton serves its customers. “Coverage is tough to come by, and few carriers are regular players in this industry,” said Hopkins.

“Recently, we persuaded a carrier partner to step out of their comfort zone to provide additional coverage for a crucial contractual requirement helping a client close a deal. This contract brought over $100,000 in revenue to our client,” said Webb.

Above everything, the Horton team provides a unique customer experience. From coverage to consultation on options and updates in the marketplace; our clients know they can come to Horton for the quick-around they need to serve their customers and businesses – leading them to a higher level of performance.

Business Insurance’s 2018 U.S. Insurance Awards will be held on March 8th In New York.
