“Scott Becker and his team at SGB are fabulous people. I am a business owner and started with them on one small item. Since then I have moved all of our business policies to them and I don't plan on going any where else. They are extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and are always quick to respond. They are much more than just an insurance agent and I am so happy to have found them. I highly recommend them to anyone needing insurance services.” -Amy
How to Help
Over the last few months there has been a series of devastating natural and man-made disasters which have wrecked havoc on the lives of many of our fellow citizens.
First it was Hurricane Harvey ravaging the Gulf Coast and Texas. Next it was Hurricane Irma, one of the largest Category 5 hurricanes on record, shooting up the west coast of Florida. Followed by Hurricane Maria slogging directly over Puerto Rico. Then finally, the terrible shooting in Las Vegas that took the lives of 59 people at an outdoor concert.
Blazing wildfires in Napa and Sonoma County which started on Sunday, October 8th have grown out of control and have burned hundreds of thousands of acres, with 31 dead, and over 460 missing.
Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers go out to everyone affected by these disasters. We also want to help. On top of making donations ourselves, we created this list of fund raising pages to make it easier for you to to help the victims, friends, and families of each of these tragedies and at least in some small way, ease their pain. Thank you.
Thank a Hero During the Holidays!

- Ask your employer if they match charitable donations, then select a veteran based charity from their designated list
- Donate your companionship through programs like the Elk's Lodge program
There are also several, reputable charities that specialize in helping veterans including:
Take the time this Holiday Season to donate time, money, gifts, clothing, or toys to your favorite veteran based charity, they will go a long way in thanking a veteran and brightening their holiday spirit!
Buying Insurance Directly vs Using a Broker
We conducted a survey asking people what mattered to them when shopping for insurance, these were their responses by order of importance:
- Peace of mind
No surprise here, everyone has a budget, and insurance isn't usually at the top of the list. The common misbelief that buying insurance directly saves money, is often times not the case at all. Reputable insurance brokers are usually offered lower rates from insurance companies so that consumers don't have to eat the extra cost by introducing a “middle man”.
Another common misbelief is that buying directly is easier and faster than buying from a broker. There are many websites with slick interfaces that appear easy and fast, but a majority of the time you end up having to talk to someone anyway. Plus, brokers are far more pro-active after receiving a quote request, often answering questions by email or phone, to help educate the consumer.
Buying from an professionally trained broker also provides the added peace of mind knowing they will get you the right policy at the right price. This is critically important when an unfortunate “surprise” occurs. If you are underinsured or not insured at all, the stress levels can make an unfortunate surprise much worse.
The brokers here at SGB are well trained in all insurance categories and will work hard to get you a comprehensive insurance policy at the right price. They will make the whole process easy, fast, and give you peace of mind that you are protected, so you can focus on more important things, like taking the family to Disneyland!
Wildfires are destructive forces of nature that can be started anywhere and by various methods including lightning strikes, transformer sparks, undoused cigarettes & campfires, or even by malicious individuals.
When a wildfire starts, there's not much you can do if your home is in the path of a raging inferno driven by unstable weather. This is especially true if a mandatory evacuation is ordered.
However there are steps you can take to protect your home and assets to mitigate the risk of a wildfire...
Clear debris from around your home
Removing the fuel for a fire including brush and debris can go a long way in protecting your home. Ideally you want at least a 30 foot gap between your property and any wild vegetation. Not only will this act as a buffer, but it will also give room to the brave firefighters working to protect your home.
Protect your vents
Adding small screens to your vents can protect your home from small embers that would otherwise enter. Embers can be carried long distances in the right conditions, and can easily spark another wildfire.
Ensure that your roof is a Class A roof and try to avoid wooden shingles in favor of asphalt, metal, or tile. Also be sure to clean out gutters and eaves removing dry tinder which could be cast ablaze from an ember.
Although your risk to a wildfire may be mitigated by taking the above precautions, they will not fully protect your home. The best option is to ensure you have a comprehensive home owners policy that protects you in the event of wildfires and other natural disasters like earthquakes and floods.
Believe it or not, many homeowner policies DO NOT cover flood damage leaving them unprotected. Flood damage can be costly and destructive, as demonstrated in the news coverage of hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
SGB Insurance offers cost effective flood insurance to help protect your home and assets from flooding not just caused by rain fall and storm surges associated with hurricanes but also blocked storm drainage systems, snow melts, etc.
We can help protect your home and valuable assets regardless of where your property is located. As independent agents we’ll shop the market for you to obtain a policy that’s affordable. We’ll also help you select the policy that’s right for you and for the area in which you live. It is crucial to review your flood insurance coverage annually as flood zone mappings change from year to year.
Whether you’re a weekend warrior, a casual rider, or a hardcore motorcyclist, you cannot predict if and when an accident will occur. This is one reason why state law mandates that riders must possess motorcycle insurance. Both property damage liability and bodily injury liability are automatically included under motorcycle insurance.
Our convenient, instant quotes, affordable coverage, and friendly agents are just some of the reasons motorcyclists like you trust us for quality insurance coverage.
You can select coverage in the following areas:
- Accidental protection
- Passenger protection
- Breakdown protection
- Replacement cost coverage
Optional coverage for custom equipment, medical payments, and towing and labor.
You also may be able to save money on your premiums if your motorcycle is stored in a garage, if you belong to certain rider groups, or if you have taken a safe rider course sponsored by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation.
Enjoy the freedom of the open road knowing that we are protecting your ride. Whether you’re cruising in a sports bike, standard motorcycle, or custom ride, we have an insurance policy that is both affordable and complete.
Our team of professional insurance representatives will assist you in deciding which Motorcycle Insurance plan is right for you by determining the discounts and special features you may be eligible to receive.
