Nothing is more comforting than safeguarding your future. This kind of reassurance is at the heart of the experienced insurance counsel you will find with the General Agency Company.

While it’s only been 6 months since I began working with my General Agency insurance team, the relationships I’ve started to form with Bonnie, Julie, Elaine, & Josh and many others at The General Agency Company are definitely more than just the normal “formal” business relationships you tend to form in the insurance industry. They have in all ways exceeded my expectations, and consistently continue to provide new insights, new information, and even new trainings to grow my knowledge base. Be it from healthcare reform changes and Human Resource “do’s & don’ts” to different insurance offerings, both personal and for our ever changing business needs... They have it covered. I am truly confident in their professional knowledge and ability to deliver the utmost expert service. The General Agency is truly more than just another insurance agency. It’s a group of phenomenal individuals who consistently go above and beyond to not only learn about all our exposures, but take the time to truly and sincerely help grow our business and make it better.
For anyone looking for more than just another insurance agency... look no further, because this family of expert individuals have you covered.
I left work early today as I have not been feeling well for a few days. When I got home, I saw this email and its' contents and I wanted to reach out to you without delay to thank you for taking care of our company and various insurance needs. From the Thompson Road wind damage, to at least two Liquor license submittals, you have been MONEY on the spot. We are fortunate to have a quality person such as yourself working on our behalf to fill our needs, most of this stuff very new to me.
Take a bow, you are one of the best and most competent insurance people I have ever had the privilege of working with during the past 39 years of business with Pete Doneth. Thank you!!!!
"General Agency Company is more than just a company, they are people who have dedicated their time and expertise to helping our company run smoothly and efficiently. The knowledge and commitment to success is second to none. Thank you General Agency Team for caring enough to make a difference."
"Tumbl Trak began working with the Risk Management Team at General Agency about 9 months ago, and what a long way we have come. Through the recommendations of General Agency's experts, we have worked with their Products Liability lawyer to ensure our warning labels are ANSI compliant.
After an eye opening walk through with their Loss Control Inspector, Tumbl Track has made numerous changes to not only make their work environment safer for their employees, but help with their premiums as well.
Tumbl Trak has also implemented the Risk Management Training Portal and all employees are required to complete the trainings on an annual basis. These trainings are either general or environment specific, which makes them relevant. GA truly has made us feel a part of the team, working with us, checking on our progress, and providing advice and guidance."
Just a quick note to thank you for your help in resolving my Dad's Life Insurance issue. Your explanation of the policy, with the how's and whys, really helped me understand exactly how we had arrived at this point in time. Also, a big thank you to Josh for the research he did with ING and the outlining of our options so that it was very easy for me to talk with my family about how to proceed. He really went out of his way to make sure that this issue could be resolved with understanding. It is so nice to live in a community where you can reach out for help and have it provided so quickly and effortlessly.
