"Nice return on our investment"
I highly recommend Claim Shield to you if you are looking to reduce your insurance costs by improving your safety practices. Spending money for a safety service seemed like an additional expense at first, but our partnership with Claim Shield has provided a nice return on our investment. More importantly, I sleep very well knowing that I am doing everything that I can to protect my drivers and the public.

How can partnering with Claim Shield save me money on insurance?
Insurance companies largely underwrite based on your safety scores, insurance losses, and safety profile. Claim Shield will work with you month in and month out to improve these three “scoreboards,” which leads to reduced insurance costs.
Am I guaranteed to save money on insurance if I partner with Claim Shield?
No. There are no guarantees. The best way to think about it is to compare it to dental hygiene. If you brush your teeth and floss regularly, you will most likely have fewer cavities. Claim Shield will build a safety plan for your business, track the plan, and then work with you side by side to execute. Insurance companies will generally set premiums based on their perceived exposure, and businesses with a strong safety culture usually get better insurance rates.
Does Claim Shield work with insurance companies?
Claim Shield has a sister company that does insurance – Robley Insurance Services. Clients of Claim Shield are not required to be insured by Robley Insurance. You can keep your insurance agent if you want to. If you want Robley Insurance to provide you with an insurance proposal, you can give permission to Claim Shield to share your safety information with Robley Insurance.
How much does Claim Shield cost?
Pricing for Claim Shield services varies based on the number of employees/drivers and the specific needs of the customer. Generally, after a brief conversation, Claim Shield can provide a proposal for services.
How does Claim Shield bill? Is there a contract for a specific length of time?
Claim Shield typically bills on a monthly basis via an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). If you join Claim Shield, you will sign a Service Agreement, but you will not be “roped in” for a specific length of time. The goal is to provide a partnership that helps you realize sustainably lower insurance costs and a strong safety culture.
How does the service model work at Claim Shield?
You will typically work with one person – your “personal trainer.” Your trainer will quickly come to learn and understand your business, and you will often develop a good business and personal relationship over a short period of time. If your trainer is unavailable on a given day, you can speak with another trainer if you would like.
