What do our clients really say…

“I have owned and managed restaurants for over 25 years and have used many different insurance agencies and Hotchkiss is by far the best. The professionals involved with our business do an exceptional job and we have seen a significant reduction in cost with better protection than we were provided by any of our previous carriers.”

They have devoted time and resources to my industry over the years to provide education and programs to reduce insurance costs for many businesses. They are not only good business partners, they are also good friends.”

Hotchkiss has been a part of TAB’s endorsed insurance program dating back almost three decades…they understand the industry. They put on seminars at our home builder associations and these are usually very well attended. It’s an ongoing education process on a number of different topics, risk management, construction defects, handling warranty claims…they do a wonderful job of workplace training, work site training and helping builders understand the things they need to do…it’s important to help our builders run their companies better and respond when there is a claim.
Scott Norman, Executive Director Texas Association of Builders
