PKIG Places at 21 on Crain’s Cool Places to Work

The team at West Bloomfield Independent Insurance Agency, PKIG were recently treated to a BIG surprise…we placed in the top quartile of the Crain’s Cool Places to Work.

Earlier in 2021 the leadership group made a decision to apply for Cool Places to Work. We knew it would be good for morale, hiring and our overall brand.

We knew we had a cool place and decided to run through the process.

One of the steps was getting your staff to answer a survey.

We were excited to find out we had 100% participation on this.

Knowing the team was going to take the time to fill out the survey, it was likely they would say good things.

And they sure must have…

In June we found out that we had placed in the top 100 out of close to 900 applicants.

Late August there was a special online viewing party to see how each of the companies ended up.

The leadership team thought it would be a great day to bring lunch in for the team and tell them there was a special webinar we needed to watch.

That ruse didn’t last long.

Lunch was great.

Watching our teammates see how we progressed toward the top of the list was even better.

You can see the excitement for yourself as we pass the top 75, 50 and 25.

The place was rocking when we landed at # 21.

Not a bad placement for our very first time being on the list.

We hope you enjoy the video.

Oh, and if you know anyone who is licensed in P&C insurance and is looking for a job, they can check out our job openings here.

My car is paid for. Do I need full coverage?

You may question the benefits of carrying full coverage auto insurance if you don’t have a car loan. However, before you drop your insurance, there are certain things you should look into. Our West Bloomfield, MI team at Phil Klein Insurance Group is dedicated to helping you make the best insurance decisions when it comes to your vehicle. There are many things that motorists can consider when it comes to dropping full insurance coverage.

When Should You Drop Full Coverage?
If you’re insured for an amount that exceeds your car’s replacement value, you should consider dropping full coverage insurance. Plain talk, if your car was totaled and the payout would be significantly less than your insurance coverage, you probably don’t need full coverage auto insurance. You could also consider lowering your coverage amounts because you’re paying for more coverage than you actually need. However, there are a few key things that you can consider in making your decision. 

  • You’re insured for more than your vehicle’s replacement cost.
  • High Mileage Car
  • You own your own vehicle. 
  • Policy cost exceeds your budget

However, consulting with a Phil Klein Insurance Group team member can also help you make a final decision.

Another consideration is high-mileage cars. High mileage cars are usually cheaper to insure because the average life expectancy of a car is 200K. Purchasing full coverage insurance on a car with high miles is not wise because, often, the value of the car is far less than a full coverage policy. In this case, you’d be over-insured. Again, you can consider lower-cost options if you drive a high-mileage vehicle. 

The Cost
If you don’t have a car loan, and the cost of full coverage insurance is expensive, you should drop the coverage or seek more affordable options. Our West Bloomfield, MI team at Phil Klein Insurance Group is standing by to answer any and all questions you may have about full coverage insurance. Give us a call. Regardless of your situation, we can help you determine your best auto insurance options.
