Jack Ransom on Member Insurance

“Member Insurance saves us money because they have specifically designed the program to cover the needs of me as an independent lumber and hardware dealer. … I would recommend Member Insurance to other members because I’ve seen Member Insurance in action. We’ve had a couple of losses and they have been right there to cover us.”

The Barn Nursery & Landscape

“The Barn Nursery & Landscape has had Member Insurance since 2000.  It’s easy to stay with the same insurance carrier year after year rather than going through the hassle of getting comparison quotes, but that is not the reason we have stuck with Member Insurance.  They are always competitive in price and provide a one package policy to cover everything.  Our experience has been very positive and it’s great to have an insurance company that understands the green industry.  And as part of the co-op, the member-owned insurance company has always returned a cash dividend!  We look forward to a long and positive relationship with Member Insurance.”

Cardwell Do it Best Home Center

“I remember back to the night I stood in the middle of my ruined store with my brother. I told him that if our insurance doesn’t come through, I’m done. Member Insurance arrived at the scene soon after the tornado and quickly wired two drafts of $100,000 each on consecutive days. They have been fantastic. Any disillusionment I ever had about insurance companies was completely shattered.”

De Nault’s True Value Hardware Stores

“Our family owned and operated True Value hardware stores have used Member Insurance to meet our insurance needs going all the way back to the 1970’s. I take protecting our families business seriously and have always felt Member Insurance has afforded us this protection. I was asked to become a dealer board member a few years ago so I have seen first hand the level of dedication the officers and staff of Member Insurance have in providing their members with their insurance needs.”

Evey True Value Hardware

“With the help of Rick Schmitt of Member Insurance, he has made me a profitable hardware retailer. I was insured with another company for more than 30 years, who treated me well and I had no reason to question what I had. Rick Schmitt made a cold call to my store and opened my eyes to the money I could be saving. Since I moved my insurance program in 2007 to Member Insurance I have saved thousands of dollars.”

Our business is diverse where we have Just Ask Rental including wedding, party, and event rental.
