    Some places will accept a generic certificate, others require them to be added and named on the certificate. For that, your agent can handle it.

    99.9 % of the time, your insurance agent will not only have to provide the broker with it, but automatically update them every year. You will want a good agent, that will work fast at times.

    Yep, good info there from everyone. And some companies will want to be the ones to request it as well.

    Always request from the insurance company because no carrier would ever send a fake one that was up for cancelation/cargo.
