Within an Ever-Changing Industry, Great American’s Dedication to Service Remains a Constant


The environmental insurance market is constantly changing. However, Great American’s dedication and delivery of superior customer service is something that has remained constant. Since its beginning more than 10 Years ago, Great American Environmental has dedicated itself to providing superior service to insureds, agents, and brokers. We continuously focus on providing supportive services to our clients, whether it be new product offerings, such as our lender form, or additional amenities like our risk control services. From the initial submission through the entirety of a policy, Great American Environmental strives to be there for its insureds.

We know our clients’ time is valuable. Upon receiving a request, our underwriters acknowledge the submission and provide prompt feedback. If the risk identified falls within our appetite, an initial indication of coverage and pricing may be offered. The deliberate speed and accuracy with which our underwriters work helps to enable a smooth process from quoting through binding and policy issuance.

For certain deals, we can offer risk control services through our network of specialty vendors. By having the capabilities to develop mold management and spill control plans, Great American Environmental can assist insureds in identifying and minimizing certain risks. These services, along with our underwriting expertise, helps to ensure that the appropriate coverages are being offered to address the unique needs of our clients.

After binding, Great American Environmental is readily available to assist clients with anything from endorsement issuance to claims handling—we pride ourselves in the dedicated service we provide for each policy.

In addition to timely policy maintenance and precise claims handling, we also offer insureds our signature Response & React program for chemical and fuel spills. One call to the Response & React hotline will put insureds in touch with prequalified emergency response contractors, who coordinate and manage cost-effective responses to emergency spills. Learn more about the Response & React program, available in all 50 states and Canada, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Due to the nature of the environmental insurance market, carriers will come and go, prices will fluctuate, and new product offerings will emerge. Despite all of these changes, you can count on Great American Environmental to remain consistent in its approach to customer service.
