    Client of the Month for December:

Covert Excavating & Concrete, located in Saugerties, NY is Ryan & Ryan Insurance Brokers’ Client of the Month for December.  Dennis Covert, owner & operator of Covert Excavating & Concrete, started his business in 1996 with one dump truck. He now owns and operates over twenty-five pieces of equipment including six excavators.  Covert Excavation & Concrete handles full excavation for residential & commercial site work, water and sewer lines, septic fields, poured concrete foundations, residential and commercial paving, ponds, land clearing, in-ground pools, poured concrete and decorative retaining walls, brick paver and bluestone patios, sand, stone, topsoil and mulch deliveries, and snow plowing and removal. 

After working with Bob on a few occasions and getting to know him better, Dennis had no question that he would someday move his business insurance to Bob.   Immediately following the opening of Ryan & Ryan Insurance Brokers, Dennis did exactly that.  Covert Excavating & Concrete is thrilled to have Ryan & Ryan Insurance Brokers addressing all of their commercial insurance needs for over five years now. In addition, Dennis also moved his personal insurance. A welcoming, warm smile, genuine concern for addressing all of his insurance needs and sincere appreciation from Bob that he was doing business with his agency, is what Dennis remembers most about bringing his insurance to Ryan & Ryan Insurance Brokers Inc. An excellent staff and their commitment to putting their customers first assures Dennis that all of his insurance needs will be taken care of in a professional and timely manner.
