Grow Your Business with GuideOne's New BOP Policy 

Become one of GuideOne's BOP Agents

We’ve been busy this past year refreshing our brand, developing an online portal to expedite the quoting process, and diversifying our portfolio. That’s right, in addition to our core niches, we’ve added seven new small business industries to our portfolio along with a new online portal to make the quoting process easier – and we want you to be one of the first agents to put it to work.

Introducing GO BOP, GuideOne’s new online quoting portal for Business Owners Policies (BOP).

Now you can quote BOP policies immediately, with a streamlined product offering to appeal to a broad customer base, including qualifying churches. Our BOP coverage offerings are specific to each industry and take the guesswork out of it for you. The portal reduces the number of keystrokes needed to complete and submit applications, and we can provide you with a quote requiring less underwriting review while addressing product gaps.

With GO BOP, we make quoting easy. So, what are you waiting for? Join the GuideOne team to learn what all of the hype is about.

About GuideOne

We operate a little differently than most insurers – we don’t work for customers, we work with them, because the work they do is so vital to the strength of our communities. We’re proud to say that we’ve been an advocate and an innovator for our customers since our founding in 1947.

In 1962, we recognized that community organizations needed an affordable, efficient insurance product that rolled many coverages into one. To fulfill the needs of our customers and our communities, we developed the first multi-peril policy, protection against different kinds of losses all covered under one package, making it more convenient more economical to insure your organization.

More than 50 years later, our values haven’t changed. With an eye on the ever-evolving world around us, we continue to create policies that protect the people who strengthen our communities through their works for churches, educational institutions, senior living communities, nonprofit organizations and now small businesses.

We operate in all 50 states through a network of thousands of independent agents who serve more than 51,000 commercial policyholders.
