    Here We Grow Again

    Success is defined as the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors; the accomplishment of one's goals. While this definition works in certain scenarios, it suggests that success is a sole attainment, accomplished by a person that has set out to reach a certain goal. For those of us in the insurance business, we know our success is only partly attributable to ourselves and that the biggest contributor is actually our clientele. After all, where would we be without our clients?

    Customer Service is Valuable

    It’s probably not surprising to learn that the insurance industry is extremely competitive and each company must go to great lengths to become established and make themselves stand out. This is especially true for independent agencies that don’t have a corporate blanket driving new business toward them daily. And with the number of online users increasing by the second, people are straying away from traditional insurance and taking their chances with the convenience of online shopping. This scenario can be described as every insurance agency’s worst nightmare. But it can also be detrimental to you, the customer. Not only are most of these policies lacking in coverage, they are also lacking a huge success-driving factor; customer service. Many people feel they’re saving time and money buying a policy online, but this often results in surprises down the road.

    There is definitely something to be said about professional experience, know-how and hands-on service, especially in the insurance industry. At Wiedemann, we make customer service a top priority and pride ourselves on treating every client as a person, not just another policy. After all, without you, there’s no us.

    We're Experienced and Committed to You

    And this approach seems to be working. Being in business since 1980 means we've done a lot of growing over the years. It also means we have experience and proven results. This is, no doubt, what makes Wiedemann Independent Insurance Agency one of the top agencies in Oklahoma and why we’ve been able to help loads of people get coverage for their needs and gain priceless peace of mind.

    All of this is important to keep in mind, considering we’re about to make some big changes at Wiedemann. Our friends at Yukon Insurance Agency are leaving the business and we’re thrilled to announce that they’re entrusting their invaluable clientele to us. Although we are sad to see them go, we know Henry and Linda are staying true to themselves in this endeavor and we’re beyond ecstatic to welcome their clients with open arms. We know how hard they’ve worked since 1987, and through some pretty tough economic times, to build a reputable company, based on similar core values those of us at Wiedemann strive to live out daily: individuals over things, relationships over money.


    We realize switching insurance agencies can be stressful and worrisome, that’s why we want to take a few moments of your time to assure you your future is safe with Wiedemann.

    Beyond experience and customer service comes education, and that’s something we take very seriously. Our agents are among the most designated in the nation. We put in the classroom hours to achieve our Certified Insurance Counselor status and are backed by Trusted Choice ®, meaning we’re committed to serving you and are dedicated to providing you with a custom-tailored policy, perfectly suited to your needs. With us, there are no surprises or fine print; we’ve got you covered.

    Conveniently located on 4th Street in Yukon, Oklahoma, we welcome you to stop in and see how we can help you protect your future. Or you can head over to our website to learn more about our company and the products we offer. We can’t wait to meet each and every one of you!

    All Your Business Needs In One Stop

    Any business owner will tell you that running a company is more than a full time job. With a seemingly never-ending list of items to do and multiple daily meetings, starting your day before dawn is a regular occurrence. Some workdays even continue long into the night, with weekend rest unheard of. And the word vacation is nowhere in their vocabulary.

    Sound familiar? Then you may be one of the many people out there with an entrepreneurial spirit, motivating the rest of the world with your work ethic, drive and overall dedication to making your business a successful one.

    But this doesn’t mean you’re all on your own in the professional world. There comes a time when you need to turn the reins over to a trusted source and know that your needs are being handled to the same degree you’d do on your own.

    That’s where Wiedemann Insurance Agency comes into the game. Don’t spend countless unnecessary hours pouring over all of your company’s insurance needs. With one phone call we can cover all your bases, regardless of what coverage type you’re looking for.  We’re your go-to independent insurance professionals and will get the job done with the same level of expertise and enthusiasm we give our own company.

    Here’s how we can cover all your business needs in one stop:

    Products

    When it comes to business, we have all your bases covered. We offer numerous, custom-tailored insurance policies that will provide protection for your company and all of its assets.


    • Bonds- We offer several types, such as Contract, Surety, Judicial and Probate.
    • Commercial Property Insurance- Provides protection from loss to business property like inventory, furniture, equipment and building structures.
    • Business Owner’s Policy- Much like a homeowners policy, this one covers liability, business property and loss of income.
    • Directors and Officers Liability- Protects the personal assets of the directors and officers.
    • E & O- Covers claims resulting from failure to perform a certain professional duty. Policies and coverage varies among different industries.
    • Commercial Umbrella- Fills in coverage gaps that can occur in other business insurance policies.
    • Workers Compensation- Pays for medical and rehabilitation expenses, plus lost wages, for workers injured on the job.

    And that’s just a drop in the bucket. We offer many additional insurance products that can be custom-tailored to your specific business needs.

    Experience

    • Strategic Independent Agents Alliance- As a member, we are able to provide service nationwide and a larger range of risk management services we wouldn’t otherwise be able to.

    Customer Service

    What good are all these products and designations if you don’t have great customer service? At Wiedemann, we take service very seriously and do anything we can to help our customers not only get covered, but in the event of a claim, or down the road as their needs change. Here’s how we accomplish this:


    • We make ourselves available 24/7 for our clients. If something happens after hours, we can always be reached by cell phone.
    • We perform an automatic annual review of policies and coverage for all customers, so you never have to wonder whether you’re up-to-date; we’ve got you covered.
    • If something in your company changes throughout the policy term, we offer mid-term audits to manage your premiums.
    • We work to reduce your Experience Modification Rate, which is used to determine your workers compensation premium. If you’ve had claims in the past, this rate will likely be high, but it doesn’t have to be; we take the time to help you get it lowered.

    Because of all of this, we are one of Oklahoma’s leading independent insurance agencies. So, what are you waiting for? Don’t waste any more time dealing with all the overwhelming business insurance requirements, give us a call today! With a quick consultation, we can get your company fully covered and give you the invaluable gift of peace of mind.


  • Spring-Cleaning Your Insurance Risks

    It's the time of year when things start to change. Everywhere you look there are flowers sprouting, trees budding, birds chirping and the days are getting longer. Children are riding their bikes again and getting ice cream on a Sunday afternoon sounds like a great idea. Yes, spring is in the air and we couldn't be more excited. Spring tends to pep us up with a renewed spirit and the urge to wipe the slate clean. You can find people organizing their closets, cabinets and drawers, attempting a fresh start to the season. Many people become so busy cleaning up their stuff that insurance never even comes to mind. This can be a risky oversight. Along with sweeping out the garage, spring is the perfect time to clean up your insurance risks.There are several ways this can be done:

    Cover your Bases

    One of the best ways to clean up your risks is to review your insurance policies to confirm you have the proper coverage in place. For example, you'll want to make sure your home, vehicles, antiques, jewelry and any valuable artwork are insured for their current values. If you’ve done any remodeling or adding on to your home, it could be underinsured in its current condition. Likewise, as vehicles and other items like antiques age, their value changes, so it’s a good idea to make sure you’ve got the correct policy and the right amount of coverage. It's also the perfect opportunity to take a look around and see if you've acquired any new possessions that need to be insured. Any potential gaps in coverage could end up costing you a lot of money in the event of a claim.

    Another great way to spruce up your insurance risks is to clear out the clutter. After a messy winter, now is the time to do a thorough walk-through of your home and property to check for any items that should be removed or replaced. This will also give you the chance to tend to any maintenance issues that need to be resolved. All of this can help lower your risk of loss due to something like a hidden electrical issue or water leak.

    Many people begin to hit the road and area lakes during this season, so giving your vehicles, boats, ATV’s and motorcycles a spring tune-up is a proactive way to ensure you’re driving or operating as safely as possible during the busy traveling season. A little prep work can save you future time and money.

    Check Your Rates and Information

    While you’re at it, checking up on details like your contact information and life insurance beneficiaries can save future headaches. Life inevitably changes over time and we tend to forget about how certain life changes impact our insurance policies. This can lead to unwanted surprises down the road. If you've gotten married, had a baby or had any other major life changes, make sure your policy types and coverage amounts are fulfilling your current needs.

    Many people make the mistake of automatically renewing their insurance policies without taking the time to ask any questions.This can end up costing you a lot more than it should in premiums. Most companies offer special incentives or discounts at renewal time or if you bundle your policies with them, which has the potential to save you a substantial amount of money. It's always a good idea to contact your agent so you know you're getting the best deal out there.

    Turn the Risk Over to Wiedemann
