In the age of the internet there are so many options available for just about anything. As consumers, it is imperative that we do our due diligence and research before making any purchases. For example, you may do research on the company’s history, read product reviews, or ask a friend for a recommendation.
When it comes to cargo insurance, the same is true. Many cargo insurance companies advertise on Google; however, Google is not a regulatory body. They are not responsible for whether a company is conducting unlicensed activity or not. More than just seeing a nice ad or a beautifully designed website, it is in your best interest to look past the surface. Here are three questions you can ask to help you identify a quality cargo insurance provider.
- Longevity – Do they have proven success and longevity in the industry?
Ramon Inc has been in business since 1982. We insure billions of dollars of cargo each year and work with the world’s highest rated insurance carriers. Our effectiveness in the industry has been proven and stands the test of time.
- Customer Service – Are they responsive to your needs?
Ramon Inc is centered around customer satisfaction and making our clients lives easier. With so much to do while running your business, you don’t need another hassle. Our company pioneered the technology that allows clients to issue their certificates online, anytime, anywhere. Additionally, our clients are consistently impressed with our quick turnaround time for any requests.
- Licensed – Are they licensed to sell insurance?
Ramon Inc. is licensed every state which includes major states: NY, CA, FL, GA, OH, NJ, MO, MI, NV, MA, PA, CO, TN, IN and other states. It is illegal for any company to sell you a certificate of insurance if they are not licensed. Insuring your cargo with a company who is not licensed is a substantial risk because in the even of claim, you will not be protected under any laws.
