  • How Long have you been a client of Murray Wamble?: Since 2003

What was your insurance challenge/issue?

Prior to Murray Wamble we were with a rather large brokerage firm.  We really didn’t understand how the insurance business operated.  We needed the insurance coverage and our old firm got us the policy and processed an invoice.  Other than that we never saw our broker representative and the service was less than satisfactory.

Why did you choose Murray Wamble?

When we met Murray Wamble they were very interested in how we do business and had a lot of questions for us.  Many of our answers led to more questions.  What they demonstrated to us was that we were paying for things we didn’t need and that we lacked coverage in some really critical areas of exposure.  Once they identified these and learned of our risk tolerance we actually got better coverage and saved money in the process.  The most important thing they did was teach us how to reduce risk and become a safer organization

How did Murray Wamble help?

They did not serve as a passive provider, they became part of our team and a company advocate.  They educated us on how important it is to remain focused on insurance because our business constantly changes and so do our areas of risk.  We learned from them that being proactive through establishment of a culture of safety that is developed and supported from the top down is critical for our organization.  Thanks to Murray Wamble we now have an ongoing safety program focused on protecting our customers, employees and company. 

What 3 tips would you give another business regarding insurance/risk management?

  1.  If you begin to wonder if your provider understands your business they likely do not and you must have providers that understand and are invested in your company’s success.
  2. If you want to improve the safety of your company you should tap into the expertise of others that know how.
  3. You should have 100% trust in your provider’s knowledge and commitment to your company’s success.  The insurance/risk management relationship is equally as important as the one you have with your accountant or your bank!
