It’s time to renew my steadicam insurance, and I was wondering if Walter P. Dolle was still the only/best option for those of us in the US, or if there was another vendor I should be considering. Thanks in advance.

I had to make a claim last year and
Tonya at Walter P Dolle was awesome!!!
I'm not switching.

Just my experience.

WPD for sure. I couldn't be happier with the service Tonya and Rachael have provided. Despite Mr. Baldanza's claim, they had a rate reduction in the SOA's master policy back in April too, so lower premiums all around!

WPD = Great! I recently had to add a single channel Preston to my policy and instead of having to pay an additional premium they told me that I qualified for a SOA discount. Two weeks later I received a check in the mail from them. Who would have guessed. You add a $10,000 piece of equipment and you get paid $80 to do it.
