Testimonials

Our business processes have yielded many excellent results, as our primary focus is always to create the best outcomes for our clients. Numerous employers have benefited from our programs and found significant reductions in their overhead just by following the Workers’ Compensation system that Derek and his team have put together.

While at the Stair Builders and Manufacturers Association this year, I had the pleasure of meeting Derek and his team. As our company began to expand quickly, we invited Derek to give us new options on our insurance program. By joining their team, our business has saved time and money. My staff is thrilled with the process of getting Certificates of Insurance and our builders are happy with how quickly we are able to get the certificates to them. Derek or someone on his team is always available to answer our questions and assist with any concerns we have. I would highly recommend The Southern Agency to everyone, especially construction and manufacturing businesses.

The home healthcare industry has many challenges, especially with our Workers’ Compensation program. Just by following Derek’s Workers’ Compensation system we have one of the lowest loss ratios in our industry. Today we have earned an Experience Modification of .63, and we could not have done this without his processes! There is not another agent like Derek; he knows this business, and I highly recommend him to every business owner I know!

I am writing to recommend the company and services at The Southern Agency, Inc. During the past year, we began our communication and ultimately chose them as our partners as our new Insurance Agency for our Property and Casualty insurance. They cover our 72 Waffle House locations that are part of our Southern Legacy Waffles, LLC Franchise in North Georgia, Chattanooga, Knoxville, Tri-City, and North Carolina territories. I can honestly say that I am more than pleased with their offerings and overall Customer Service as a company.

I had worked with Chris Cain for several years when he was worked with our Worker's Comp TPA. Chris made the initial introduction to Derek Wirz and the offerings at The Southern Agency. When Chris joined The Southern Agency, his knowledge of our business needs was a driving force in our decision to make a change.

Derek and Chris have given 110% of their time to ensure that we were given the proper coverage and best pricing for our business. Derek and his knowledge of industry is like no other and our team is very impressed as we were making our decision to go with his company. Their attention to detail and immediate response to our needs surpasses all expectations we could have hoped for!

If you are looking for a partner that has your best interest and is willing to negotiate strong pricing for your company, then The Southern Agency is where you need to take your business. I look forward to a long partnership.

The Southern Agency was referred to us by a State Farm agent and their Seven Step process improved our coverage and cut our rates significantly. While going through the process, we found out we had no Professional Liability or Care, Custody, and Control Liability insurance. As a janitorial service contractor we need specialized coverage and they got us properly covered through The Cincinnati Insurance Company.

We had not really paid a lot of attention to our insurance; we just thought it was properly structured. When Derek reviewed all of our exposures and values, he made recommendations and it reduced our overhead thousands AND doubled our coverage. His approach is nothing we had ever seen before and we now know our insurance coverages are well-designed and at a budget we understand! Derek and his team understand the Truss Manufacturing business and we count on The Southern Agency and Derek!

We have had the best experience in doing business with The Southern Agency.  Our agent, Derek Wirz, took the time to learn about our business, made recommendations and he came up with much better classifications on our Workers' Compensation and property insurance.

Derek worked hard and got us back over $10,000 in premium over-charges from our prior insurance company. These over-charges dated back as far as 2008!  Derek understands the class code system and knows how to apply it. He has even brought another one of his customers by our plant to see our products and how our products can help them!

The Southern Agency has made a tremendous impact our bottom line and we now have the right insurance through The Cincinnati Insurance Company. We recommend Derek and his team at The Southern Agency!

We have some very unique insurance requirements from those we work for. Derek spent a lot of time with our staff and found the proper insurance coverages to meet these requirements and needs. Our insurance overhead is very low, which allows us to land more new business. We are very happy with our decision to move our business to The Southern Agency.
