I have purchased General Liability Insurance for the past 4 years at BizInsure for my wedding videography small business. In these 4 years, it has always been a smooth process.There must've been some sort of technical issue (potentially due to my change in address), so my policy didn't auto-renew. I called Bizinsure and talked to Paulina, who was beyond helpful. She was very polite and explained things very well. One small detail that I can appreciate is that she often said my name, which shows that their customer service is intentional about personalized communication.In just a few minutes, we updated my account + renewed my insurance for a 5th year. I highly recommend Bizinsure!
