We have talked a lot about roofs to our customers in the last couple of years.  The reason is that we have replaced so many roofs because of straight line wind and hail damage.  In my agency alone, we have replaced over $1,000,000 in roofs in the last 24 months.  The costs to insurance companies for ...Read More...

It's one of those "blink and you'll miss it" type things, particularly if you and your family took a week-long spring break trip.

Over the years, we have gotten this question many times.  "If I drive my Grandma's car (or friends car), am I covered!?" Insurance follows the car, so your grandmother’s policy should cover anyone who has her permission to drive the car. Even if you had an insurance policy ...Read More...

I'm always amazed when I get offers in the USMAIL for auto or homeowners insurance.  I got another one in the last few days at my residence! The envelope arrives looking SO official, no identification indicating who it is from - just a PO Box return address.  I know it is mass mailed ...Read More...

Spring is here and so is golf!  The Masters is this week and we couldn't resist a little "insurance spin" on it.  Travelers Insurance likes to use their dog as a branding icon.  Here is one of the latest commercials where this not-so-good golfer gets a little help! We ...Read More...

WASHINGTON, D.C. - More than one hit-and-run crash occurs every minute on U.S. roads, according to new research from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.
