Since that time, we have become one of the largest insurers of carnivals in the nation. We reached our leadership position by understanding the needs of the industry and maintaining close relationships with individual customers. Our agents have the experience and expertise to create a program tailored to meet your specific insurance requirements. Kaliff Insurance is proud to be an active member of the OABA, SLA and IIAA.
