     Everyone speaks of resolutions at this time of year - but at PGIA we think it's more important to stay true to good habits all year long.  We strive to provide you with timely service, a knowledgeable and friendly staff, and core principles that come straight from the top.  We welcome 2013 with open arms and hope to make this year even better than the last.  


Not-For-Hire Autos 

    Not all businesses use their vehicles to transport goods or people for-hire.  Often, company owned vehicles are used to makes sales calls, deliver the company's own products, transport their employees or to simply run errands.  At PGIA we can write them all!  Some of our "not-for-hire" classes include:


                   - mobile mechanics

                   - mobile advertising units

                   - florist delivery

                   - meals on wheels

                   - party/ event rental companies

                   - salesperson's autos

                   - miscellaneous PPTs


    Don't hesitate to call one of our Underwriters when the next not-for-hire exposure crosses your desk.

    As many of you know, Pacific Gateway can write just about any auto risk of any size within our 4 state territory of AZ, CA, NV and OR.  But did you know that we can also write coverage in other states?  Well, we can!  There are a few restrictions, however: 1) we need 10 or more power units on an auto submission, 2) for all other coverage there is a $10,000 minimum premium (yes, we can write other-than-auto coverage too!) and 3) a BOR may be required if other submissions are received.  


    We call these risks outside of our territory, "Brokerage" risks, and they represent the fastest growing segment of our book of business.  So please remember, whether it is a distressed account, a new venture or a last minute opportunity - we are here to help you with your risks all across the U.S.!


   Don't hesitate to send your submissions to our submissions email address:
