Taylor Harris’ Tom Rattigan Explains His Role as an Agent in the Equine Insurance Industry

Wellington, FL – February 26, 2007 – Having experience in the commercial insurance world and being an avid horse lover made it easy for Tom Rattigan to take a position with Taylor Harris Insurance Services, Inc.

Rattigan grew up on the West coast in Northern California and rode western for many years, but about 15 years ago, he made the change to the hunter/jumper world, saying that he “was addicted from day one.” As a Taylor Harris agent, Rattigan works with clients on a referral basis.

“What I do, when a client is out there looking for horse or mortality insurance, is that I just try to be available and answer their questions, like why it protect their investments and how, and walk them through the process,” Rattigan explained. “The most important things are to be accountable and to communicate – return phone calls and things of that nature, in a very timely manner.”

As someone who has had years of experience in the insurance business, Rattigan has a good perspective of how insurance providers can compare to others. As far as Taylor Harris goes, he said there is no comparison.

“The level and quality of service is just outstanding. Every single person in our backroom is an ‘A’ player. They know the policies, the rates, and the terms and conditions. They’ve been doing horse stuff all their lives. With the combination of good insurance, good horse people and excellent customer service, Taylor Harris creates a dynamic combination that really can’t be beat,” he commented.

He continued, “People are always very appreciative that we have really great follow-through skills. Clients like knowing that it has being taken care of. A lot of the time when someone buys a horse, they want to make sure the investment is protected, and they want a level of comfort in doing business with a fair, solid broker. We give them that confidence.”

Rattigan added that when a client has a claim, this is the time when an insurance company has to prove itself.

“I try to be proactive in the claim process to ensure the client knows that I am available to help them. The claim service is when you really have to shine. People are stressed out and their horses are ill and it’s a difficult time,” he said. “This is when we try to make it really easy. Some clients like to handle the claim on their own, and some like having someone hold their hand. At the time of the claim, our expertise and our responsiveness shine through. We do whatever it takes.”

With almost 20 agents located throughout the country, Taylor Harris is available to meet all equine insurance needs. THIS offers the following coverage plans: Full Mortality, Major Medical and Surgical, Expected Foal Insurance, Guaranteed Live Foal Insurance, Permanent Infertility Due to Accident, Sickness or Disease, First Seasonal Congenital Infertility Insurance, Limited Perils, Transit Insurance, and Short Term Coverage. In addition, THIS can provide Farm Package (Property and Liability Insurance) Care, Custody and Control Insurance, and Liability Insurance for private and professional owners and equine operations.
