Jim Gardner, CEO
Everything in insurance is changing. Yet, are you having much luck finding innovative approaches for your loss control needs? Odds are, the problems and issues you are experiencing in getting your inspection needs met, are increasing.
At Gardner Group, we blend providing traditional inspections with new technology and approaches. We will work with you to find a unique approach which takes advantage of:
Policyholder Self Service App
Mobile Inspector App
Agent Inspection App
Remote Video Inspections
At Gardner Group, we will help you engage your agents and policyholders into the risk management process.
Legacy, field based, loss control services are a necessary part of any good underwriting program. However, the unintended consequences of inspections are that they are expensive, slow to be delivered, and often can cause friction with the agent and policyholder, etc.
ViewSpection makes your agent and policyholder inspectors. And your vendor inspectors, better inspectors!
With our unique app, we boil every question down to an image and we can deliver both an exterior and interior survey of a property at submission at a fraction of the cost of traditional field surveys.
As you can see above, you can double the number of inspections which you complete WITHOUT significantly increasing your inspection budget.

Gardner Group provides field inspections in the Northeastern area of the US. We can provide special services outside of our core area or we can help network you with other quality loss control vendors. Our self service platform, ViewSpection is available in all states.
20% of the property defects cause 80% of the problems and claims in personal lines. We built our loss control approach around identifying and documenting these defects in our reports. When an agent or policyholder uses our app, the app helps identify these Hot Button Hazards. Download this PDF and see the full list of hazards.
Every loss control website you look at will talk about time service, quality and price. We have been around for 30 years. We have many of the same customers my Dad started with. We deliver on all three points. What is the value add that you want from your loss control partner?

You might be surprised how much detail is in a video walk through of a property as the policyholder films with their smartphone. Our field rep evaluates the video from our offices and assembles a standard report. Bonus: You get video archived for 7 years. Great for any future claims.
The cost of loss control is a major line item. At Gardner Group our goal is to provide you as many price points and service options as possible. These listed prices are just a starting point for pricing and service levels. We will be happy to provide a proposal and pricing for your specific situation.
