Unitrin Specialty Commercial Vehicle Program among the best

May 24, 2007

DALLAS, TEXAS – Competitive pricing, commissions and compensation packages. These are just a few of the reasons agents choose Unitrin Specialty when writing commercial vehicle insurance.

Agents writing fleet accounts are increasingly relying on the strength and stability of Unitrin Specialty when insuring 10 power units and larger with combined single liability limits up to $1 million.

“Unitrin Specialty has an established niche for fleet accounts,” said Keith Gehring, commercial vehicle product manager. “We’ve written these accounts for 40+ years through more than 3,000 independent agents and brokers and they tell us they appreciate our experience, rating discounts, simple quote process and fast friendly service. Most important, they know we’ll be around for a long time. And of course it doesn’t hurt that we offer competitive commissions and compensation packages that are industry-leading in many states!”
