Towing Contractors Renew/Expand Reinsurance Contract With U.S. RE

U.S. RE established a significant presence in the auto towing field a year ago by creating a reinsurance program for the Independent Garage and Towing Contractors Association, a national network of towing services, many of them under contract with auto clubs of the American Automobile Association (AAA). After a successful first year, the program is being renewed with the addition of another national organization of towing contractors, Cross Country Automotive Services.

Cross Country is a leading independent provider of roadside assistance with a national dispatch network of over 17,000 towing and road service providers and more than 10,000 locksmiths. Services are provided under contract to auto manufacturers, insurance companies, fleet/rental car agencies, and affinity groups.

The U.S. RE program provides liability coverage for the two national towing response organizations through a Purchasing Group owned by McManus, Peard, and Gesl, a managing general agency in Buffalo. The policy issuing company is Artis, a subsidiary of Royal & Sun Alliance-North America. The program provides all required coverages, except workers' comp, in a single package. Paul Dzielinski, Vice President of U.S. RE, worked with the McManus agency to put the program together and arranged essential reinsurance coverage.
