2015 Preferred Partner

Berends Hendricks Stuit Insurance Agency, Inc. is one of the largest independent and locally owned insurance agencies in the Midwest. Founded in 1939, we have five locations in West Michigan insuring clients throughout 48 states. The agency is owned by seven shareholders, all of whom are full-time staff members at Berends Hendricks Stuit, Inc. Our staff is comprised of 110 insurance professionals providing exceptional service to over 14,000 clients. 
Working closely with the American Public Gardens Association, we have developed a specialty program for their institutional members. We understand a critical mission of public gardens is to provide positive visitor experiences, programming centers on safe environments for guests and staff and reducing the cost of risk, resulting in a more efficient and profitable organization.
Our “in-house experts” will assist you in uncovering and minimizing risks, implementing specific safety programs and goals, as well as keeping you up-to-date with human resources and wellness initiatives. Our garden team negotiates with high quality national, regional and specialty insurers to provide cost effective, comprehensive and creative insurance programs, customized for each garden. We also advocate at the time of loss, working with the insurer to expedite and settle our clients claim.
It is our 14 years of experience and expertise with public gardens along with our attention to detail and strong commitment to excellence that sets us apart from the competition.
