History

Purchased in December of 1990, the agency was a small property and casualty agency with most of the premium coming via home and auto insurance. Otha Barrow of Marianna, Arkansas, was the first trucking account that was written. From that point, the business has grown from one trucking account to some 350 plus accounts. We have gone from zero premium volume to a premium volume in excess of three million dollars. What once was a local property and casualty agency, has now become a multi-state agency, writing all types of transportation related coverage for various size accounts, ranging in size from 1 to 100. While specializing in transportation related insurance products, we also have outlets for the additional lines of coverage that are necessary to completely satisfy the independent trucker. In addition to auto liability, physical damage and cargo coverage, we also offer general liability; umbrella, health, life and in certain cases, home and auto insurance coverage as well. The retention ratio of the agency is in excess of 97%. Historically, when we write an account it is usually a long-term relationship. The reason is simple: We treat you like family. We are not a big city agency that recognizes our customers by a number. When you call us, chances are, we will recognize your voice because the coverage was written by 1 of the 4 people in our office. We are proud of the fact that Otha Barrow, the first account we ever insured, 17 years later is still insuring through Bradshaw & Associates. As you will see by looking at the information on each employee, we do not have much turnover. Chances are, the person you talk to your first time, will also be the person you talk to the next time. It doesn't matter if you have been in the trucking business 10 years or just started thinking about getting into the trucking business. Let our staff with over 40 years combined experience go to work for you.
