Allied Customer Testimonials

“Their breadth of knowledge of the scaffolding industry in New York really makes us feel confident in their recommendations.”

“Allied not only has a great expertise and knowledge of the scaffold industry, they understand the scaffolding industry within New York specifically. That is something that isn’t always easily navigated by other brokers. Add on to that their excellent customer service and you can find why Allied is such a great fit for us. More than just providing insurance, Allied has consulted with us on all insurance coverages and issues that we needed to know. Their breadth of knowledge of the scaffolding industry in New York really makes us feel confident in their recommendations. Their claims consultant Bill Hiller has been exceptional in helping us reduce claims and certificates of insurance are issued quickly and easily. This all helps our business run better. New York Ladder and Scaffold is probably one of Allied’s oldest clients and there is good reason for that.”

“With their experience and knowledge of our industry, they always know just what we need and how to make it fit.”

“Allied helps us with so many things that they mean more to us than just insurance. With their experience and knowledge of our industry, they always know just what we need and how to make it fit. So I know we are always covered no matter what happens. What sets Allied apart is their additional services they offer. Whether it is how to deal with contracts or the various other services that help us run smooth. Their Allied Toolbox (Allied’s web-based risk management platform), is invaluable for its up-to-date OSHA information and reporting capabilities so we stay compliant with regulations. We also use their online safety tools for our meetings to help train our staff and make sure they are at their best. What I like best about Allied is that they are hands-on. They are here in-person often, even though they are based in Pittsburgh. That means a lot and makes us feel special. We have a unique and personal relationship with Allied and its team, and we think very highly of them. The people there are phenomenal and are considered a part of our team. Their knowledge and understanding of our company and industry goes unmatched.”

“Our Allied rep was able to walk me thru the process, obtain all of the required coverages and work thru all the appropriate coverages and languages the customer needed.”

“After several weeks of putting your reps thru their paces and jumping thru hoops I feel compelled to write you to let you know how much we appreciate all of the work and efforts that they put forth on our behalf. After 6 years of continued service to one of our good customers, they now required several states workers compensation coverage. While we rarely do work outside the state of Ohio we are now required to add 3 additional states for workers compensation. Having no prior experience dealing  with the states, our Allied rep was able to walk me thru the process, obtain all of the required coverages and work thru all the appropriate coverages and languages the customer needed. It is this kind of service that keeps us returning to Allied for all our insurance needs.”

“We are a more agile company capable of doing a better job for more customers because of their efforts.”

“There was a time when we relied on insurance brokers to provide coverage and not much else. The solution-oriented approach that Allied takes and the lengths that they go in providing us with current information and timely correspondence has allowed us to change the way we do business. We are a more agile company capable of doing a better job for more customers because of their efforts. From risk engineering to safety training and customer service, Allied has built a support system that is not only industry-specific but is tailored to our company. The expertise and knowledge that Allied bring to the table allow us to better focus on other aspects of our business because we know that our insurance needs are being handled with the utmost professionalism.”
