About Clarendon National

The four companies are:

Clarendon Select and Harbor Specialty are no longer accepting new applications. Value is a focus for all Clarendon companies so they work hard to be efficient, reduce costs and invest cash reserves effectively.

This philosophy reflects that Clarendon is in the process of completely changing their business model, and the entire group of companies continues to transition as a result of corporate changes.

With many organizations no longer accepting new business, Clarendon is managing their own insurance against claims.

Like hedging a bet on the market, a company that is not taking in new money takes care to stay profitable. The typical model is that new business income off-sets the cost of paying claims on older policies.

If you have insurance through a Clarendon company, there is not current bad press about claims being met and customer service continues to be a focus of the organization.

So get a few car insurance quotes, check out the reviews for Praetorian and other, and your best choice will emerge.
