"In 1994, we experienced a devastating fire that totally destroyed one of our two business locations. At the time, I happened to be out of town when I received the call from my brother about the tragedy. Faced with a five hour drive home, I had many things to think about…Is it a total loss? How will this affect business? Should we rebuild? What insurance coverage do we have? After arriving home, and even before going out to the site of the fire, I received a comforting call to let me know that adequate coverage was in place and he and the agency were already working on the preliminaries to filing the claim. That’s the kind of agency and ‘friend’ that I want to provide my insurance needs."
