Security Services

If you provide policies for security-based businesses, you may need special insurance coverage not normally offered by traditional insurers. Businesses that provide security guard services, private investigators, alarm systems and locksmiths as well as others requiring entry to private living quarters, need a unique type of protection.

You may have turned down this type of high-risk client in the past, but with South Western Group’s support, you can actually provide a wide range of coverage options at fair and competitive prices.

South Western Group offers specialized coverage to meet these unique needs and is one of the industry pioneers in providing this type of protection. We have been offering security coverage for nearly 20 years – far longer than most other insurance providers.

This longevity brings with it the deep knowledge and experience of our team of underwriters, all of whom have been binding security contracts for nearly two decades. Our underwriters are always available to help, applying their extensive knowledge base to help brokers understand the special exposures their security clients face and the best and least costly way to cover them.

The insurance coverage we provide takes into account all factors relevant to your client’s situation, helping to avoid unpleasant surprises down the road. You can trust us to evaluate the complete risk picture, offering coverage for all potential exposures, including failure to perform, design errors and omissions, bodily injury, advertising liability, legal expenses, property damage and a host of other circumstances.
