WE GET IT
Your business is different. Your industry has its specific needs. Our team gets it – and is able to help you identify potential risks and value-based solutions.
Your staff may think our people are part of your organization. That’s ok by us… Our customers invite us to partner in finding solutions. You are expert at running your business and we know insurance. Being veterans in the insurance industry, our staff has a lot of experience to share with you. (Did we mention that one of our many strengths beyond our industry expertise is that many of our staff are bi-lingual?)
You have a business to run. You have employees, vendors, customers… why not consolidate your insurance needs with an agency that can help in all areas? WGIS can help you consolidate and you gain efficiency in the process.
Who do you turn to when you have a question on health care reform? What about crop insurance? You’ve just acquired a new business or sold some equipment– who do you ask about your insurance needs? The answers are: WGIS, WGIS and WGIS. (We will probably get this information to you before you ask – but don’t wait for us if a situation arises!)
Whether you are looking for a solution to address health benefits, workers compensation or insuring your property, we have much the same access as other insurance agencies or brokers; AND we have direct access to products sponsored by Western Growers Assurance Trust.
