Why Microsoft Has Made The Need For Cyber Liability Insurance So Urgent

Earlier this month Microsoft ended its support of Windows XP. What this means for its users is that they will no longer be provided with security updates. The result is that anyone still using this system becomes vulnerable to cyber attacks. Given what has recently transpired with Target and other retailers experiencing breaches in their…

What You Can Do To Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

When I first heard this term my challenge was primarily to understand what the term “carbon footprint” meant. In doing my research I found many definitions, but the simplest one was the following: an estimate of the carbon dioxide I produce while living my life. I didn’t realize that my carbon footprint was the way…

Aggressive Motorists

We have all seen the driver who weaves in and out on the highway only to wind up in the very same traffic jam that we do down the road. The fact is that all their rushing didn’t really get them any further along on his trip and his erratic behavior only served to unnerve…

Does Your Business Insurance Cover You Abroad?

Yesterday, one of our local commercial clients called to ask if his commercial insurance would cover him and his employees abroad.

From the first time I spoke with Lori Halloran at Petschauer Insurance, I knew she was a special person. She is a woman that conducts herself professionally, with compassion and full knowledge of all types of insurance Petschauer has to offer. While speaking with her, as she explained and answered all of my questions, I felt like I was speaking with family…which is another way to describe this company. She has a way of making very confusing decisions so simple and easy to understand. I even added another insurance policy to my two renewal policies because of her. My last renewals could have been processed via mail but I really wanted to take the time to drive and meet this wonderful woman face to face. She greeted me with this huge beautiful smile, which matched her personality perfectly. So, I just had to go back another time just to say “Hi” and bring her flowers in appreciation for all her help and also celebrate a new friendship. The Petschauer “Family” has been there for me since my first policy when I was 19 years old, and now I’m a “senior”. I’ve been with them forever and don’t plan on going anywhere else. Thank you Lori for your dedication and to the rest of the Petschauer staff.

I have worked with various individuals at Petschauer and have found each to be responsive, courteous, and thoughtful. Each year, the contact for my auto policy proactively seeks new bids and has consistently saved me money on my policy.

I have been with Petschauer Insurance for a long time. My account executive Lori Halloran is like family to me: she is always there when I need her and is very knowledgeable and understanding. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my insurance needs.

I have had the pleasure of working with various members of the Petschauer Team, both personally and professionally for 20+ years. And I couldn’t have done it without them. They go above and beyond. Heidi, Narima, Sherri and LuAnn don’t just bring to us the products they offer, they help me to understand the specifics and evaluate what makes the most sense for me, my family and my employees. I always feel I have a better understanding of an industry I have no understanding of so that I can evaluate the offerings in a smart way, cost effective way. They are proactive with renewals, allowing us the time to do our due diligence, evaluate our plans to be sure we’re properly covered and are always there to listen and help with special circumstances. Their kindness, caring and willingness to lend an ear when needed, really makes them stand apart from the rest. Heidi and her family have built a beautiful culture at Petschauer and I highly recommend them to anyone I meet.
