In 1982, Swingle Collins & Associates was formed with the goal of serving this vital, thriving middle-market of entrepreneurial and family-owned businesses. From our large brokerage roots, we set out to create an environment where privately held businesses could access the deep product knowledge and expertise they sought from large agencies, within a more responsive and personable framework.
At first, our offerings were limited to commercial insurance services. Then, as clients responded favorably to our ability to tailor solutions to fit their needs, they began to ask for more. As a result, we expanded to offer a full range of risk management solutions including personal insurance, employee benefits, loss control, and claims management.
Today, Swingle Collins serves a growing roster of regional, national and international clients. Private businesses and successful individuals alike continue to turn to us for our unique balance of in-depth product knowledge and client-centric service.
Relationships are everything
Relationships are the foundation of our business — with both the companies we represent and the clients we serve. A dedicated Advisor acts as the central point of contact for each client, handling all aspects of the account from initial meetings, to claims processing, to ongoing service and policy renewal. By taking a personal interest in our clients’ business, our Advisors can develop a deeper understanding of their goals, and find smarter, more effective ways to protect the business and lifestyle they’ve built.
A deeper understanding of privately held businesses
When clients come to our agency, they soon notice a difference. We understand their priorities as business owners. We empathize with the concerns, pitfalls and risks they face. Maybe that’s because in setting out to serve thriving, privately held businesses, we became one ourselves. And as we grew, we learned firsthand the importance of surrounding yourself with people who are the embodiment of integrity, service and trust. That’s what we value as a company — and that’s what we provide for our clients.
I am certainly glad that you didn’t let me skip the insurance on the rental house, because we have pipe leaks all over the place, and a very unhappy tenant that we need to take care of. Julie told me that you recommended the remediation company that is over there cleaning up the house. We appreciate the prompt attention as we know you have to have tons of calls coming in!- T.K.
We have been so pleased with both Swingle Collins and Associates and our agent. They helped us open a school by making sure all aspects of the school were covered by various policies. Their prompt response to an issue has been excellent and we feel confident in our coverage. It is nice to do business with a company that treats us like part of the family. We are very grateful to have Swingle Collins on our side.- M.C.
Our benefits enrollment was thrown in my lap at the last minute. I was worried about making sure employees were covered and had a million questions. I sometimes emailed several times a day and the SCA Benefits Team answered every single question quickly, making our rushed process go so much smoother. I truly appreciate all of your help!- L.P.
The Swingle Collins Benefits Team was fantastic at our open enrollment meeting! They were very informative and presented in a manner that all understood. All were impressed. Your team has made this the easiest open enrollment I have ever experienced in my 13 years! Really do appreciate you!- Client
Your team has been exceptional through all of our questions, all of our panic, and need for help on contractors and companies. You all pull rabbits out of hats with regularity, and that certainly helped with this mess. Thank you.- B.C.
I called Swingle Collins when I was starting a new business and they were very patient, taking the time to educate me on the various insurance products available and helping me make meaningful decisions. I now help several businesses and would not dream of shopping insurance without the assistance of the very helpful people at Swingle Collins.- D.U.
I owe you one! If you had not cleaned things up for me on all of my investment properties, last night’s hailstorm would have cost me ten times what I am looking at paying, and likely without important coverages being in place. I am a lifer and will tell everyone that will listen how pleased we are with Swingle Collins.- J.S.
I wanted to thank you for your time yesterday; with the chaos of the tornado and windstorm, the last person we expected to see was our insurance agent and builder on the front steps -even before the power company could safely drive down the street. That’s the kind of touch that sets you apart, and we greatly appreciate your help in an otherwise miserable situation.- T.T.
