“I have been involved in the Crane, Rigging and Transportation industry all my life. It is a very rewarding feeling when you see the skyline change and you know you and your employees had a major part in building our nation. It is also a very challenging business. I have been insured with the people at NBIS for almost 20 years and I can say without a doubt that they will stand by you in the good times and also in the toughest of times. Where many insurance companies would want to run away from our industry NBIS is there by your side when you need them the most. NBIS has been a true partner and I would recommend them to other companies in the industry."

“We had to ship a lifting tool from New York to New Mexico, including its return. The price we received through PartnerShip beat everyone else out. The gentleman I worked with was very helpful, and it saved us a good amount of money over the other shippers we requested quotes from.”

"We started using the [Enterprise] program about a year ago, and now use it a couple times a month for business travel. [I] immediately noticed a five-percent savings when using the program on a regular basis. The two key points for continuing to use the program for me are: It’s a way to save money for the business, as I travel often, and with this program, you can get a U.S. or Canadian rate car – which is huge for me, since I travel through both.”

“I was pleased to find that many of the items we regularly purchase were already included in the Staples Advantage pricing structure,” she affirmed. “In addition, most of our orders qualify for the three percent Large Order Rebate. Our first order was approximately thirty percent less than it would have been.Each of our five facilities across the country will all be using Staples Advantage as their primary source for office, breakroom and cleaning supplies.”
