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 and 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....even if your not from Guelph!read more

So over the moon happy with these guys. Specifically Dave. I was a first timer today, extremely nervous about taking another step toward “audulting” 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. Where as 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.read more

What Is Covered By Small Business Insurance?

Depending on your specific coverages, small business insurance will protect your property, your stock, and your contents from damage, including theft, spoilage, water damage, and more. Small business insurance is typically purchased in addition to your standard commercial general liability policy.

If something happens in your neighbourhood to cause a business interruption, such as a fire or long-term construction on your street, small business insurance can help cover the lost revenue. This type of policy can also help cover the costs of relocation and more.

A number of coverage options for small business insurance are available, including:

  • Business Interruption
  • Contents & Furnishings
  • Relocation
  • Stock
  • Signage
  • And more

Your policy can also be customized to accommodate special events where you might have extra stock in your store — for example, Valentine’s Day for florists or Thanksgiving for butchers. To find out how to customize your policy to get the best value for your business, speak to one of our brokers.

Contact the insurance experts at Jeffery & Spence today to discuss your options.
