I have been in business almost 19 years and have never had a claim. I have shopped around for insurance may five times in almost 20 years . To be honest I thought they were all the same and charged the same . I honestly saw a Facebook ad for Hiscox and figured it was time to shop around again. I am now saving almost $700 a year and getting a million more in coverage. I couldn't be happier with the entire process from the online quote and original purchase to customer service when I have a question. Highly recommend this company

I have been with Hiscox for over a year and although I have had no reason to use them in the likes of a claim, I found their service to be thorough and allow me to rest at night knowing that my small business salon and spa are covered day and night. Insurance allows the mind to be at ease and all bases covered. Thanks Hiscox my experience with your staff and your rates offered are more than fair and just.

I am trying to legitimatize a small and scalable hauling/delivery/moving business using my pickup truck and a friend of mine recommended Hiscox for commercial general liability insurance. Business has been reasonably successful and it seemed like Hiscox might be able to help based on the optimistic advertising I saw. Unfortunately, they were not interested at all in knowing exactly what I do and spoke to me for about a minute before referring me to their partner company "Bizinsure". So, I called THEM and, although I understood that BizInsure couldn't help me, rather than answering a few of my questions about the overall insurance business to educate myself, their representative literally forced me off the line by talking over me and hung up on me. So, neither Hiscox nor the company they recommended were at all helpful. Very, very disappointing.

I have to say that dealing with them has been a pleasure. As a new business owner they have went above and beyond service helping me get the coverage I needed and at an affordable cost.

Unfortunately, I can not recommend this company. They have been sending me tons of post cards in the mail and I get their online ads all the time. I inquired about their liability insurance for my small business as I am a social worker in private practice in California. Interestingly, they turned me down because a very small part of my practice is supportive counseling services to dying clients. The reason: Hiscox is fearful that due to the new assisted-suicide law passed in California that there will be an increase of lawsuits for those of us that provide counseling to the terminally ill. Huh?!? Face it, we are all mortal. We are all going to die at some point. Doesn't it even seem a bit discriminatory to say we won't do business with you because you work with dying clients? Hiscox, I am very disappointed in you!
