How to Find an Insurance Agent for Your School

When you run a school, an important part of the administrator’s job is to have the facility, staff, and students adequately insured. How do you find the right insurance agent for the job? Here are some tips to help you locate a knowledgeable representative who can help you find the right charter and private schools insurance package.

 

Specialization

 

Not every insurance agent understands the needs of educational facilities. Find a representative that deals specifically in policies covering private and charter schools. Your average car or life insurer might not have the products you are looking for, so find an agent that knows about teachers, students, and schools.

 

Word of Mouth

 

One of the best ways to find a great insurance rep is to ask other school administrators. Contact them with a list of questions about their experiences with agents, companies, and whether they’d recommend their insurers. You can also go online to read reviews of specific insurance companies and reps.

 

Interview Agents

 

Chemistry is important, so be sure to interview a couple of agents who make it to your short list to see how you click with them. A relationship with your agent is important, so find one that aligns with your communication style and the philosophy of your school

 

Once you find the right charter and private schools insurance agent, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Now you have a savvy representative on your side.
