Norguard Insurance Agents

Some insurance companies specializing in business products for small and mid-sized companies work on a direct-to-customer model with no independent agents in the field.

Norguard is not one of those companies. Instead, they have a network of independent agents scattered throughout the 27 states they serve. The work just like independent

The work just like independent auto insurance agents by working directly with customers to write new policies, modify existing policies, and submit claims.

The Guard Insurance Group website does not provide an agent locator service as some of their competitors do. If you’re looking for a local agent will have to contact the corporate headquarters or a regional office to obtain that information.

You may also fill out an online form at the company website and an agent will get back to you.

Their website does include a link to the company’s agent portal. From this portal agents can log on to access all of the company’s agent tools. The portal allows local agents to service policies and file claims quickly and efficiently.

Norguard Insurance Claims

Although the claims process will differ from state to state where workers’ compensation is concerned, commercial auto insurance claims will be pretty standard. Norguard suggests customers contact their local agent in order to begin the process.

The local agent will be able to assess the situation and take into consideration any local conditions that may apply. With that information in hand, your agent will work directly with Norguard to satisfy your claim appropriately.

If you’re unable to contact your local agent, the Guard Insurance Group website does provide a toll-free number for your convenience.

They also provide email addresses and fax numbers so you’ll be able to send the required paperwork quickly and easily. As most insurance companies do, Norguard suggests customers who need to file a claim do so as quickly as is reasonably possible.

Norguard Insurance Reviews

When we search for auto insurance reviews we typically find that those reviews are dedicated to carriers who handle personal auto insurance.

Seldom will you find reviews for insurance companies that deal exclusively in the commercial sector, and unfortunately, this is the case with Norguard.

Because they don’t carry any personal lines of insurance, customer reviews are nonexistent.

Norguard Insurance Careers

The “careers” link on the corporate website directs the browser to a page that begins by telling viewers that Guard wants to help them find a career rather than simply a job to make ends meet.

The company says it is small enough that the individual efforts of each employee still have a large impact on the direction of the company.

The website lists openings in California, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New York for field specialists, staff attorneys, software developers, and more.

Clicking on the individual job postings produces a job description as well as links to apply online or share the posting with a friend. When you apply online you’ll be able to attach your resume for review.
