We recently had the pleasure of interviewing small business owner Eric
Ferrer. Eric owns a hauling business and needed to find a commercial auto
insurance policy that would protect his company’s assets. He shared with us
how easy it was getting insurance and how our resident licensed advisor,
Irma Delgado, was able to make that happen.
Tell me a little bit about your background. How did you start your
In my previous line of work, I was a dispatcher with a fuel inspection
company. One day, my dad, who is a truck driver, asked me to look into car
hauling for him. As I began doing a little research, I learned that this
career path might be something for which I was more suited. I started
looking into opportunities for myself.
I liked the idea of being my own boss and working my own hours. After 11
years of service with my previous company, I knew it was time to start my
own; I decided to go for it. As of August, I have been the owner and
operator of my car hauling business,
Ferrer & Sons Transport LLC. Since then, the business has acquired a new truck, a LLC, and, should we
need it, commercial auto insurance.
How did you hear about CoverHound?
Wouldn’t you know it, I was given CoverHound’s customer service number from
the dealership where I purchased a truck for the new business. At that
time, I was in communication with another insurance broker in New York. I
pocketed CoverHound’s number thinking I probably wouldn’t need it. As you
can see, I did need CoverHound.
How were we able to help you?
The agency I was working with prior to contacting CoverHound kept giving me
the runaround. On one call, I was promised an affordable rate. On the next
call, without explanation, my rate had jumped $5,000. As a result, I asked
them if they could possibly find me another quote. In the meantime, I
called CoverHound and was connected with Irma. She found the policy I
needed (it was the same policy I wanted with the New York agency, go
figure!) at a significantly lower rate.
I can’t express enough how much better an experience it was talking with
CoverHound and getting my business insurance needs met than it was with the
It wasn’t just the cost savings I appreciated, either. Irma was easy to get
ahold of and she always got back to me. I still haven’t heard back from the
other agent. It’s been three weeks since I called! I’m very happy with the
pricing and the way Irma took care of my concerns. If I could, I would give
Irma a 100-star rating. From the little time that we spoke, Irma took care
of my business and my peace of mind.
Your team, and especially Irma, have been great. I recommend CoverHound to
anyone looking for insurance.
Thank you, Eric. You have been a pleasure to work with! We’re delighted
