What our clients say about us:
"I had the good fortune to be referred to Professional Insurance Advisors, LLC by one of our fellow store owners last year. I had discovered that we were inadequately covered for Inland Marine and we were doing a good business with high end Chinese antiques at the time. My previous agent and several local prospects gave me the "we don't do that and don't know where to get it" routine. Cindy Dampier stepped in and gave us a good rate for our other business insurance needs, as well as, a lot of leg work to find an acceptable Inland Marine policy. I would recommed Professional Insurance Advisors to any and all store owners interested in the best of service from true professionals." -- Chuck Radtke - Pak Mail of Bradenton; US266

**Definition of Bailee Coverage: A legal term referring to Insurance that covers property entrusted by a Bailor to a Bailee, or temporary custodian of another's property, that takes effect when teh Bailor recieves a receipt from the Bailee for the property. Bailee's insurance covers damage incurred to property while in the care of a properly designated custodian.
How do contracts that transfer liability hold up in court?
Some businesses try to protect themselves from the Bailee liability imposed by the property of otehrs in the custodianship. They may try to do this by having their customers sign disclaimers of liability, hold harmless agreements or waiver of subrogation contracts. These types of contracts usually do not hold up in court due to the specific description between bailment and contract law. The courts have commonly overturned these types of contracts because a Bailee connot sipmly contract away their legal liabilities regarding the property of otehrs in their care, custody or control granted thorugh the Bailment contract. If ou take into your possession the property of tohers, you need to provide a Bailment contract to the customer and purchase a Comprehensive Bailee Inland Marine policy.
