Don’t take our word for it. See what our customers have to say!

I have been doing business with them for about eleven years. Last year we had a one in a million issue with another insurance company – the carrier for a driver that hit my truck. Without going into the details, the Owner John went above and beyond the call of duty to resolve the predicament I was in.

Christina, You have done such a great job. It’s going to be an amazing weekend for so many families because of you. My brother has 2 kids, our drivers’ wife is pregnant with their first baby and I’m hungry for success. We will be able to make everyone’s lives better because of your efforts. Think about that when you go to sleep tonight, you have made that kind of difference!

John and Shelly have a top notch team. Fran and I have been with CIS for 5 years and 2 trucks.   They have always had our back. John and Shelly are great people. Always friendly and do amazing work for the Expedite Industries drivers. Can’t wait for casino night at the Expo. Thanks you guys for everything.

Tina and I would like to thank all of you for your diligence in taking care of all our insurance needs.  As fleet owners, we sometimes have special needs and more than the average number of changes to our policies. It’s nice to know that one call takes care of it, and we don’t have to worry.  The coverage you provide is above and beyond “peace of mind”. Knowing that you and your staff are on top of it makes our worries a lot less.  We find great comfort in knowing you have our backs.  Keep up the great work you do for us and for the trucking industry. It is much appreciated!

We have been using CIS for many years for our commercial insurance needs. They are incredibly fast to act on an insurance policy, usually within a few minutes after receiving the documents. They also have incredible knowledge reviewing different leases to determine the proper insurance needs. If we can qualify drivers they can save us money. We consider them a valuable asset to our business. The staff is always courteous and professional.

WE are blessed to have created a partnership with CIS, and we are grateful for the support they have shown us! The staff is exceptional and go above and beyond expectations.  Without their support, Sarkis Freight would not be the company it is today.

I just wanted to give you a quick update on the total loss claim for the 2006 Freightliner. Josh Sanders is the Claims Adjuster.  What an awesome job he has done. He made this as quick and stress free as I’ve ever seen.  6 days after the accident and payment has been made and sent to the lienholder.  It is also a very fair settlement.  I am so pleased!  Times like this make me so glad to be with you guys!
