Hear What Our Customers Have to Say:

“No one beats the prices from El Dorado- no one. Other companies offer generic policies instead of specific solutions customized to meet the requirements of our business. El Dorado is a company that backs up their commitment with action. They fully explain the conditions of contracts for insurance coverage. Response is immediate and the advice is appropriate. I can call any time for service and support. El Dorado is a tremendous resource for our company. It is a pleasure to do business with them.”

David Tremblay, Murray Guard Inc., TN

“If you can’t reach or have to wait on your agent, then it’s not a good plan. I love the personal contact I
get with El Dorado. I can call right now and get a live person on the phone. My coverage is better than
what I had and the price is significantly lower. They’re just the best, hands down.”

Dennis Sebenek, Custom Protective Services

“El Dorado has been providing insurance for United International Investigations since 1999. The
representatives of El Dorado have always been very helpful and prompt in answering any questions
I may have, and the cost of the insurance is always very competitive. I would suggest that all
investigative agencies consider insuring through El Dorado Insurance.”

Claude Bookout, CEO/Chief Investigator, United International Investigations, TX

“El Dorado understands the alarm industry better than anybody because they cater to the Security
Industry. They understand the protections we need and that means a lot to us. In addition, we find
them to be very competitively priced.”
