Here is 8 ways to say thank you to a Veteran: https://www.military.com/veterans-day/8-ways-to-express-appreciation-on-veterans-day.html
We hope you have a safe and fun 4th of July!
During the Covid-19 pandemic, we are still on task and able to have your necessary documents prepared and emailed over for you. Jamie is still working relentlessly to get the certificates of insurance, quotes, and policy payments processed and delivered.
While we are practicing social distancing in office, we are aware of the risks our insureds are taking by continuing to roll-on and make the world go ’round. We would like to take a moment and thank our truck drivers for maintaining deliveries, and risking exposures along the front lines with our medical, emergency and clerical.
You can request Certificates online by visiting our request page, or you can contact us by text message at (228) 325-8454
Why is my friends insurance cheaper than mine?

*Savings based on compared coverage’s and rates of previous active policies with qualifying discounts.
Traffic is no doubt the biggest concern for travelers during the upcoming holidays.
Imagine if you were a truck driver.
They have to be even more cautious of our actions than we do of theirs. Holiday travel can mean busy highways, parking lots and heavy interstate traffic. Congested roadways and anxious drivers are a cocktail for turmoil. Sometimes we get so excited we tend to not pay full attention to our surroundings.
Did you know, when we change lanes in front of a big truck upon a red light, we are actually taking away the extra space the driver allowed for their truck to efficiently stop. My four door sedan stops pretty quick, the freight truck behind me can not. Truck drivers try to prepare for all scenarios but sometimes its hard to account for all actions of other drivers. Here a few road way techniques truckers try to follow when driving and changing lanes.
Larger vehicles are unable to stop and may slide or fishtail if the brakes are needed in a hurry.
Leave at least a car length between you and the car in front of you to avoid a preventable rear-end.
Be cautious of pedestrians at cross walks and in parking lots.
Wet roads become slippery, keep a safe distance and reasonable speed.
