Listen to Brandon Schuh's Axe of Pod

Axe of Pod explores trends in litigation, insurance and newsworthy lawsuits and verdicts.

Axe of Pod

Funky and Phat

This week on the pod we talked to Derrick Mains, the President of Phat Scooters in Arizona. Phat is bridging the gap between the micromobility space the luxury personal transportation. With a sustainability awareness, Phat is attracting all kinds of people from movie stars to professional athletes to wealthy business icons. The company has such a great entrepreneurial story and interesting day-to-day encounters, that they are launching a docuseries on Crackle called “Riding Phat”. We’re extremely excited to introduce our listeners to Derrick and Phat.

Jump On It

In this week's episode, Brandon interviews Bryan Ovalle and Arun Gunasekaran from Jump Watts. Specifically focusing on what their technology can accomplish from a safety perspective. They have looked at some really interesting ways at rebalancing/repositioning and even standing upright e-scooters fleets. The rebalancing process, from an insurance perspective, is certainly one of the most challenging aspects of the micro-mobility space. We look forward to seeing how Jump Watts can make their mark!

How to get started.

We know that working with a new insurance agent can be overwhelming, so that's why we put so much emphasis on making sure you're getting value from the very first phone call.

01  Discovery

We’re sure you have a bunch of questions and hopefully we’re a good fit, but sometimes things don’t align - and that’s okay. A quick call is usually all we need to help both of us gain clarity around the prospects of working together.

02  deep dive

Every business is unique — including yours — and there’s no “easy button” for giving proper guidance. We’ll take a deep dive into your business, your financials, and your exposures — at no cost to you — to provide the expert advice your business deserves.

03  custom Plan

Similar to prepping your house before selling, we create a custom plan to prep your business for securing the best insurance rates. We’ll work together to identify short, medium and long term action items that will help lock in the best rates now, and for years to come.

04  Price & Bind

Plan your work, work your plan. Our thorough understanding of your business, combined with your custom plan, enable us to find the best policy and carrier fit for your business — at the best rates. We go to market - and go to bat - for you.
