  • positive review  I've been searching for quotes for video production coverage. Natasha from TCP has been so quick to respond with thoughtful answers to any questions I have and so quick to make any adjustments I need for my quote. Just wading into the process of gathering quotes and understanding what I'm even looking at has been really intimidating, but it's been so wonderful to be able to find someone so personable who explains things so well. I'm really glad I contacted TCP

    thumb Steve Byrne

    positive review  Working with the team at Tom C Pickard Insurance is always a pleasure. Kelli Saxon and her team are super responsive to our individual requests and the turnaround time to receive your certificate is lightning fast. Plus, they are there to consult with you when you need to incorporate special provisions into your coverage. You will not regret partnering with them! They are pros!

    thumb Amalia Ferreiro

    positive review  They are so efficient and always ready to help. They answer almost immediately when I request a COI and are always responsive when I have questions. I recommend them to anyone working in production! It will make you life easier.

    thumb Leslie Coutterand

    positive review  Just had the best service from Kellie in Certs. Incredibly quick service (always) and wasn't charged for an updated cert that I had to pull a month before my policy expired. Always top-notch and friendly service. Proud customer for 10 years now. Thank you TCP!

    thumb Christina Gandolfo

    positive review  I don't usually rave about insurance companies, but I love these guys! Every time I need a certificate of insurance for a shoot or to rent gear, they send it in what seems like a minute! They also answer the phone and are really kind and friendly. Lastly, they're pretty darn affordable and work with you if, worst case scenario, your gear gets stolen. I definitely feel a good peace of mind knowing I am covered and that they are so accessible!

    thumb Sari Goodfriend

    positive review  The TCP team that helped me today (Rich and Natasha) went above and beyond to set me up with two different policies same-day, to meet my very tight deadline. They worked tirelessly to figure out how to get me what I needed on a Friday afternoon, and get me bound to insurance and have COIs sent before some East Coast businesses closed, even though I had no prior relationship with TCP before Friday morning. I'm looking forward to a great relationship with TCP, and with the first impression I had, they will be a great fit with my business. Thanks Rich, Natasha and the TCP crew!

    thumb Mike Isler
  • positive review  I was referred to TCP years ago from a fellow photographer and I prefer them over any other photo insurance company. Barbara has been my point of contact for 10 years and has always been super fast in responding, incredibly patient with all my questions, and it's a relief that TCP is so affordable. Thank you!

    thumb Jen Ross

    positive review  TCP has been a great option for our production insurance needs. The staff is fast with responses and always very thorough and helpful in explaining any questions I’ve had about my policy. I’ve been so happy with their customer service, coverage, and pricing that I’ve referred them to other filmmaker friends who have also obtained policies for their production needs.

    thumb Chelese Belmont

    positive review  The team at TCP Insurance is a dream to work with, tearing away a lot of the red tape that usually slows productions down. When I need a COI turned around quick, they’re my first call.

    thumb Jacob Bittens

    positive review  We have had TCP for many years now. Thankfully, we have never had to utilize them for any catastrophic event with our business. They are always very quick in their response to any questions or issues that we may have, to include Certificates of Insurance. Cyndi and Kellie are the absolute best in customer service! We wouldn’t work with any other insurance company in the business!

    thumb Sally Stacks Smithies

    positive review  Kellie is INCREDIBLE!!! I cannot recommend her enough. Aside from making sure we got out COI's on time, she was such a friendly and personable colleague. I don't know that I can use anyone else!!

    thumb Caroline Elizabeth Carter

    positive review  Kellie replied and took action so quickly! I highly recommend TCP

    thumb Brian Long

    positive review  Kellie was a great help in clearing up an invoice that was sent by mistake. Great customer service!

    thumb Emanuel Hahn

    positive review  We had a very last minute shoot on a Sunday and Monday and they got us multiple COIs, end of day the Friday before. We were desperate and they came through in a pinch! That kind of responsiveness is unparalleled.

    thumb Jared Leeds

    positive review  When I called companies for initial quotes only TCP was prompt. Fortunately that didn't stop once they sold me my policy. Today I needed a quick turnaround on a COI and they still impressed me with their polite, helpful and rapid response. Thanks again!

    thumb Michael Banks

    positive review  TCP is top notch and delivers every time! Thanks for keeping up with all of our requests this week! Your team is the best!

    thumb Kevin Joelson

    positive review  I work as the Head of Video Production for Instapage and we frequently rent lighting, grip, and camera equipment. When I submit a request for an insurance certificate from TCP, they immediately deliver one. This is super helpful when I'm on a tight deadline.

    thumb Adrien Colón

    positive review  We highly recommend TCP! Kellie is incredibly fast turning around photography certificate requests and it saves us a lot of time with clients and vendors. Thank you for the amazing customer service and response times! Truly appreciated.

    thumb Jaclyn Ryan

    positive review  From the time I reached out via TCP's website to snag a quote to the moment I locked in my policy, I was blown away at how personable and helpful the staff was. Huge thanks to Rich who walked me through the entire process, took the time to explain the variety of coverages TCP offers, as well as understand my business to ensure I was receiving what I needed. Over the last several weeks since starting coverage, the team has been accommodating to any questions or certificate needs and I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of coverage. Thank you TCP!
