“So over the moon happy with these guys. I was a first-timer today, extremely nervous about taking another step toward “adulting” by getting my own auto insurance. And when I say nervous, I mean NERVOUS. Dave was MORE than helpful. His personality put me at ease, and the way he explained things made me go from feeling anxious to comfortable. Dave did more than help me get my own insurance. Dave made me feel like it was just a normal conversation between people. Whereas other conversations have gone with other companies, I felt like a stupid kid in their 20s that didn’t know what they were doing. It’s comforting to know that now, in the future, when I need home insurance, etc. I know who to call. Thanks a million, Dave.”

“The Jeffery & Spence team is wonderful. They have insured my assets for over 4 years. When I switched over from my old provider they made it easy. They were honest and reliable. I started simply with a call out for car insurance. They were able to take a look at 5+ companies and make sure I had the proper coverage at a great price. (They beat my old provider by $300). Slowly and surely as other asset insurance policies were coming to an end (home, business, additional vehicles) it only made sense to call over and get a quote. Additionally, there is customer service like no other. I call in frequently for updates and questions and whether it’s the front desk or managers I have never felt like I was asking a stupid question. Jeffery & Spence is awesome and you owe it to yourself to just give them a call.”

— C. Pavao

“Jason was great to work with – very prompt, communicative, and helpful. I managed to find the best deal for my auto insurance thanks to his help. I had initially tried calling another broker but they didn’t pick up so I called this company and am glad I did. Highly recommend!”

— E. Nip

Prepare Your Business and Reduce Your Stress

As a general contractor, you take on numerous responsibilities and manage various aspects of construction projects. This exposes you to a wide range of risks. Having the right insurance is essential to protect your business and give you peace of mind.

You work hard to deliver quality projects and ensure customer satisfaction. However, accidents can happen, and without proper coverage, you could face significant financial losses. General contractor insurance offers protection against potential liabilities, lawsuits, and other unforeseen events that could jeopardize your business.
