IME is user friendly, providing an efficient process to get things done. Whenever I’ve had questions on policy, or just needed coverage advice, their rep not only responded to my questions quickly and accurately, but took the time to offer extra helpful advice and direction on some more involved issues. I highly recommend IME.

IME has supported me with five star service for several years. As a director and DP, I want to focus on the creative work, not insurance. My agent answers my questions promptly and clearly… every time. And then I get back to doing what I love to do! Thanks IME!

Mario Mattei Director and DP Austin, TX has been great to work with. They give me peace of mind knowing my camera package is covered on jobs and rentals.
