The advantages of a single provider are numerous:

- Common renewal dates
- Fewer opportunities for coverage gaps
"As a business owner, I don't have the time to worry about my insurance coverage. I need to know that my employees, customers, vehicles and facilities are always protected. Hays Companies gives me that piece of mind. As my business grows my needs are constantly changing and having a partner like Hays has been very valuable to me. Many companies can offer insurance but the service that my agents Bill Holler and Debbie Szyszka provide is what sets Hays apart from any other company. They are in contact with me regularly and know and understand my needs. While the challenge of running a business is never ending it’s refreshing to know that I never have to worry about my insurance. I look forward to continuing my partnership with Hays for years to come."

Our specialist team provides outstanding service to all their dealer clients, regardless of size. With more than 30 years of experience in the industry, we provide top of the line product knowledge. Hays representatives will meet with you to review current policies and contracts for any deficiencies. We assist our clients with the review and/or development of their rental agreements to assure proper assumption of risk by the renter, and equipment maintenance procedures.
Hays Companies believes the best approach to loss prevention in the construction industry is through proper education, training and safe use of any equipment involved in a project. This is especially true when working with aerial reach equipment, where proper use and familiarization with the equipment is essential to achieve successful project completion and assurance of operator safety.
The Loss Control team at Hays Companies will work with equipment dealers to provide education on industry recognized standards, including ANSI A92 standards (compliance by the dealer is voluntary) and OSHA regulations (compliance by the dealer is mandatory). Hays will assist the dealer in developing operator training guidelines and clarifying minimum qualifications of the trainer who will be working with the equipment end users. We recognize the importance of exceeding the expectations of our dealer clients through product knowledge and claims handling.

The Hays Companies team of insurance professionals works very hard to provide Star Rentals with quality products at competitive prices and keeps abreast of a rapidly changing industry. It truly is a partnership!”
