Movers Choice celebrates 20 years

It was 20 years ago that we had a vision of developing a business and a specialized insurance product to share with the Transportation industry. We focused our efforts and Paul Hanson Partners was born. We set up shop simply with a goal to become experts in our niche.

First and foremost I would like to thank our customers and brokers that have given so much to us. We would not be here today without you. Second, I'd like to thank our carrier partners, employees, supporters, and even competitors who inspire us to be better.

Over the years we committed ourselves to providing the highest quality insurance programs with unsurpassed service, claims handling and a complete insurance product that is unique and above others.

As proud as we are of our past, we are even more excited for our future

Paul Hanson Partners is now insuring several thousand policyholders across the United States. This year we have launched our mobile claims app (which is compatible on all devices), as well as, our new loss control portal This is an online virtual library of safety materials that provides our customers with solutions and tools to reduce claims. We have partnered with another strong carrier partner (AmTrust Underwriters) to offer our customers additional options when seeking coverage. We will continue to pay attention to the market changes and provide our customers with alternative insurance solutions.

The best part is, we've only just begun. It feels as if it is still Day One, so, cheers to the next 20 years!

Why Millions of People in the Western US are Concerned About Drought

As a result of record low rainfall in the Western United States, wildfire risk is very high. Brush fires can occur year round. Low rainfall, low humidity, and high temperatures create very dry brush conditions and prime conditions for fire.

You can play an important role in preparing your home and business to survive a destructive Fire.

Providing a “Defensible Space” can reduce the risk of structural damage caused by fire. This space is defined as at least 200 feet wide to the area surrounding a structure. A “Defensible Space” decreases fire hazard and provides an opportunity for firefighters to safely defend your property. Vegetation that does not ignite easily should be planted in the defensible space.
