Taxicab Programs

We offer a wide variety of coverages for your taxi company, with broad acceptability of vehicles and drivers. Ensure you have the right protections in place in the event of an accident, damage to your vehicle, or injury to a passenger.

Trucking Programs

We provide insurance for all trucking operations, including dry freight commodities, refrigerated commodities, flat-bed operations, and general trucking. We represent carriers that can provide coverage for local, intermediate, and long-distance radius operations. Whether you have a single truck or a large fleet, we have insurance solutions for your business.

Limousine/Livery Programs

We have access to the top specialty markets available for the limousine and livery businesses, allowing us to offer you competitive pricing on all of your insurance needs. Whether you operate classic stretch limousines, luxury SUVs, or limo buses, we have a program to suit your unique business.

Protecting Your Business

Research Underwriters has a staff of experienced professionals that can design programs uniquely suited for your business. We provide comprehensive solutions that cover all exposures, allowing you to focus on your business. 

General Liability

Every business needs the protections provided by liability insurance coverage. Safeguard your assets in the event that your services, products, or operations result in bodily injury or property damage to a third party.

Workers Compensation

Our Workers Compensation programs protect your business against claims resulting from injuries to employees. Traditional insurance, coupled with effective safety programs, can reduce workplace injuries and ensure a healthy, productive workforce. 

Employment Practices

General Liability policies exclude claims that do not result in bodily injury or property damage, meaning that if your business causes a financial loss to a third party, you will not be covered. Professional Liability policies fill this gap, providing financial assistance to cover judgments, settlements, and defense costs.

Alternative Risk

Captive Insurance Programs allows businesses to gain ownership and control all aspects of their insurance programs, including costs and profits. We facilitate the creation and management of single-parent, group, and rental captive options for our clients.
