You’ve Got Questions and We’ve Got Answers
Buying business insurance online can be confusing, so we work hard to make it simple.

Once you complete our brief quote form, our team will typically reach out to you within one business day and provide you with your free quote.
Are you an insurance company? Who underwrites your policies?
Boardwalk is an insurance brokerage specializing in commercial insurance. Like any bricks-and-mortar brokerage, we get to know you and your business’s needs (in our case, through our quick online form), and then we negotiate with our partners to find the best coverage option for your business.

Not quite yet! But it is a feature our development team and our insurance partners are hard at work on. In the meantime, we’re here to help you find a free business insurance quote with our dedicated client support team.
Is it possible to speak with a person?
Not too fond of bots, eh? We completely understand. Endless automated telephone systems are another hassle you don’t need to deal with when working with Boardwalk. We’d be more than happy to talk with you about your commercial insurance needs. You can give us a call or message us on social media if that works better for you. We’re also available to meet in person, virtually or over-the-phone.
I already have a policy through a broker, and I’m pretty happy. Why would I change?
If you’ve found a business insurance policy that’s working for you, stick with it. But be aware that problems like improper programming, policy deficiencies and harmful exclusions can pop up at the time of a claim, and by that point, you’re paying the price for them. Boardwalk can help you get the right plan for your business’s needs before you experience an unexpected problem.
Are you guys an insurance brokerage or a tech company?
Our investors loved asking that question. Boardwalk is an insurtech company, with our roots deeply ingrained in insurance. Our founders are directly from the insurance market and have extensive commercial insurance coverage knowledge and experience. Technology is our tool to help deliver superior customer service experiences and change how business owners manage their plans and protect their lives’ work.
Where are you located?
Our head office is just north of Toronto, Ontario, but we operate and write business across Canada.
We are licensed in the following provinces: Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and New Brunswick.
I have a claim. Who do I call?
We’re resisting the urge to say “ghostbusters,” right now.
With any insurance policy, claims typically go through your insurer, which means that most policies will have a toll-free number on them to call. You can usually find this number on the first or second page of your policy documents. But if you want us to get the ball rolling for you, we also have an internal claims department that can be reached by phone, email or by completing our claims intake form.

“Michael and his team are absolutely worth dealing with! Not only are they competitive with pricing, but the service you get is top notch. I will only use companies who understand their customers needs, and take the time to build a lasting working relationship. I have worked with Michael in the past with great success and I was happy to reconnect with him at Boardwalk Insurance. He is a true professional, he knows his business and what his clients need. He will make sure his clients have the proper policy to suit their needs every time.”
