Commercial Insurance

The commercial insurance landscape is complex and ever-changing.

In addition to the ever-evolving insurance market, the very sources of risk itself continue to shift as larger trends emerge in business practices and regulations . Identifying how all of these factors affect your organization and responding with the right insurance program and risk management methods is critical to guaranteeing the success of your organization into the future. Your team at Brown & Brown is ready to accomplish this. We come uniquely equipped with extensive insurance expertise and a wide array of value-added services and risk management tools.

 What’s Your Insurance Strategy?

It is our ongoing mission at Brown & Brown of WA Inc. – Tacoma to provide precise and thorough expertise in each specific line of insurance you hold with us.

As the sixth-largest insurance intermediary in the United States, Brown & Brown has a wealth of experience across the industry spectrum and the resources and clout of a top-tier brokerage. However, we operate on a decentralized model where every local team can tailor our approach and services to best serve our customers. Your Brown & Brown Tacoma team is committed to providing the highest-level personal service while mobilizing the power of Brown & Brown to deliver superior results and creative solutions.

Our sole focus is achieving results for our customers. We seek to reduce our customers’ cost of risk, secure the best protection available, and provide services that minimize losses and save our customers time. We believe the role of a broker is to serve as a constant advocate and advisor, not to simply transact a policy each year.

We believe that it is only by being consistently engaged with our customers that we will come to truly understand their operations and be able to refine their insurance portfolio and risk management programs to optimal levels. Every organization is different, and we seek first to discover and understand our customers’ operations before recommending products and solutions rather than promoting a specific product or employing a one-size-fits-all approach.

Brown & Brown Tacoma is a dynamic enterprise positioned for growth. If you are not already a customer, we would love to meet you and discover how we can help your organization take control of your cost of risk. Our team of experts is eager to assist you.
