Founded in 1902, the Insurance Center of Winchester, Inc. is the oldest and largest independently-owned agency in the Northern Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. With 15 licensed agents, including five Certified Insurance Counselors, the Insurance Center is distinguished by its reputation for superior personal service, high-quality companies, and the ability to solve complex insurance needs.
As one of the region’s top agencies, the Insurance Center protects thousands of homeowners, renters, autos, RV’s and motorcycles, as well as many of the region’s top businesses and industries. We also provide health, life and disability insurance to individuals, along with comprehensive group benefits plans to many of our business clients.
While the latest technology drives agency operations, good, old-fashioned customer service is our trademark. On-line and phone service is readily available to accommodate the needs of busy customers, but we still enjoy the chance to meet with you personally and talk face-to-face if that business style is better suited to you.
The Insurance Center of Winchester, Inc. is divided into three departments: Personal Lines Insurance, Commercial Lines Insurance, and Financial Services. Agents specialize in their respective fields so that they can explain the coverage, solve unusual problems, and help you become better informed about what you are buying. We believe that an educated customer is the best customer, and we do everything in our power to help you understand the coverage you need.
The agency is actively involved with the Professional Insurance Agents of Virginia and D.C. (http://www.piavadc.com) and the Independent Insurance Agents of Virginia (http://www.iiav.com). We are a “Trusted Choice” agency.
Spend some time on our website and then contact us today for help with your insurance needs. We think you will enjoy working with our friendly, caring staff and the many fine insurance companies that we represent as an independent agency.
