3 Ways PHLY Thinks Out of the Box for Excess and Surplus Insurance

Even though small businesses make up over 99% of U.S. businesses, finding the insurance coverage they need can be difficult. Only 28% of small business owners have the necessary general liability and property insurance. Many insurers find it difficult to quote or underwrite these businesses' coverage because of their lack of history and loss runs.

Fortunately, agents and brokers can turn to Philadelphia Insurance Companies (PHLY) for E&S (excess and surplus insurance) coverage for their small business clients. PHLY leverages its deep knowledge and underwriting expertise across a wide range of niches and specialty markets to cover this underserved market.

When it comes to E&S coverage, PHLY offers your small business clients more.

Find Hard-to-Place Contractors' Insurance, Manufacturers' Insurance, and More

You can turn to PHLY to find non-admitted insurance coverage for your small-to-midsize business clients. Our E&S commercial general liability coverages, property and environmental coverages, and other plans fill a vital protection need your small business clients could have difficulty filling elsewhere.

3 Ways PHLY Does More for Your Small Business Clients

  1. Environmental Liability through our Environmental Account Solutions (EAS) process

This excess and surplus insurance protects small businesses from injury, property damage, remediation, and legal issues resulting from contamination incidents. These environmental insurance products include, among others:

  • Storage Tank Environmental Policies with quick quotes, for protection from remediation expenses caused by environmental contamination from above-ground or underground storage tanks

As employees who've been working remotely return to office buildings that have been empty during the pandemic, small businesses will want and need insurance to protect them from liability claims related to mold, legionella, and other environmental dangers that may have developed.

  1. A Small Business Solutions (SBS) team for a quick turnaround

Does your client fall into the non-admitted category in the $3,000-$15,000 premium range? PHLY has a dedicated Small Business Solutions (SBS) unit to handle these quotes for commercial general liability, property, and excess coverages.
