At Preferred Insurance, we know you want the peace of mind that comes with comprehensive insurance coverage, but you may need help determining the coverages you need.
We are here to guide you through the confusing maze of insurance options to find the right fit for your business to protect you against the many risks and exposures in today’s business environment.
There are only a small number of agencies that specialize in writing policies for elevator contractors, inspectors, manufacturers, and service and repair firms.

An admitted insurance company that is licensed in all states is used. This is a true national program that has the financial capacity to withstand large losses without cancelling or non-renewing after a large loss.
