NON-STANDARD HOMEOWNERS, TENANTS AND CONDOS
Having trouble finding a market for your personal lines risk? Cansure offers a wide variety of policies for hard-to-place risks, ranging from small tenants packages to high value homes and farms. You CAN BE SURE that we will find a way to help you and your clients find the right coverage for every situation.
Risks are reviewed and rated on an individual basis and anything “out-of-the-the box” is our specialty! Our expert underwriters don’t just look for boxes to put risks into, discarding those that don’t fit perfectly. Instead, we review each risk on its own merits, paying particular attention to creative ways to help your customer get covered, including deductible options, tailored endorsements and more. We’ll help you fit the square pegs into the round holes!
