Davis Automotive

The Fidelity Insurance Agency difference in effect

After a decade with a previous vendor, Rick Davis of Davis Automotive had an eye-opening moment that would concern any business owner. He found out there was a significant gap in his coverage and several buildings were not included in the group’s garage liability plan. It was a critical miss by their carrier that prompted them to look to do business with another provider.

“What impressed us about Fidelity was their expertise and the relationship they build and maintain with us and our staff,” said CEO Rick Davis. “There is great value in having a single point of contact for all our coverage needs who responds quickly and cares about every individual. With FIA handling our insurance needs, they take care of the details and my team is able to focus on our business.”

A custom-tailored & seamless approach

While many insurance agencies won’t take the time to meet with employees when businesses have a small number of employees (like the 40-60 many dealerships maintain), FIA makes it a point to sit one-on-one with every staff member and explain the value in planning for their health and savings goals, which resulted in a significant increase in 401k participation.

Oftentimes in the dealership setting, the CFO or controller is tasked with pricing out insurance coverage. But most don’t understand the complexities of each of the plans, which can leave the business and its people lacking coverage or paying too much for a less-than-ideal plan. FIA takes the stress and uncertainty of that process away by going to bid on behalf of our customers, negotiating pricing and presenting only the best offerings suited to their needs. This means minimal interruption for the dealership, allowing their leadership and teams to focus on their areas of expertise as they place their trust in FIA’s insurance experts to do what we do best.

By keeping consistency in coverage, it also mitigates the uncertainty and discomfort that comes from change. Dealerships that handle their insurance negotiations in-house often find themselves changing providers each year to chase down the best rate. This can often mean inadvertently missing key coverage and forcing employees to select plans from a new carrier each year. With FIA negotiating on your behalf, it increases the likelihood that you can keep your carrier and coverage without paying a premium for it. This stability is huge for our dealer partners, especially in terms of employee confidence.

Focus on your business

Coverage for all areas of the dealership

Everyone knows they need insurance, but does your current provider give enough time and attention to the variety of plans and the value they bring to your business and your people? Oftentimes, people come to us for pricing on one type of coverage, and when they see the care and consideration we take in crafting plans that work for them, we earn their business across the board. You might call it old school, but that approach has worked for us for nearly 40 years, and we feel good earning the trust of our customers and knowing they refer their friends to us.
