Local Business Insurance Provider
updated: Feb 17, 2014, 11:00 AM

Seeking recommendations for a local business insurance provider or agent. I own a very small business and need worker's comp and basic fire/theft insurance. Have been unhappy with my giant megacorp located on the other coast; they are too bureaucratic and impersonal.

My mom recommended me to Tomm & Buck Insurance and we've insured our home and cars with them. Mark Tomm is very helpful.

Second recommendation for Paul Cashman. They will ask you specific questions on your needs, and then get you a very speedy quote. I found them to be excellent providers for our business needs.

Cashman is great, Brown and Brown was the absolute worst service we have ever had with a agency for our business and rental properties. When you file a claim once every 12 years and only need to speak with your agent once a year it should be simple but not with them. Getting a call back or info on policies took several days and repeated requests.

I'd give Brown & Brown a big miss. When I had a claim, they were worse than useless. They became part of the problem.
