The Hibbs Difference
Hibbs Insurance Agency, Inc. is a family-owned and operated business that was founded in 1960 by Ernest R. Hibbs. Today, the agency is owned and operated by his son, Michael O. Hibbs. Hibbs Insurance is a local independent agency that is committed to providing unparalleled customer service to its valued policyholders.
The agency’s mission is to provide comprehensive insurance products, and the very best professional service, including fast, friendly, and fair claims processing, all at the lowest possible premium. At Hibbs Insurance, policyholders are individuals who are looking for a local independent agent to manage all their personal insurance needs, including auto, home, life, and health. Large and small business owners also turn to Hibbs Insurance for quality business insurance programs that provide the coverage they need at a very competitive price.
Hibbs Insurance is an independent insurance agency that represents several different insurance companies. As such, the agency can compare coverage and prices to find the best possible value for each individual’s unique circumstances. With Hibbs Insurance, policyholders have choices. The agency is committed to doing business face-to-face and being an advocate in times of need.
Choosing the right insurance agent can make a big difference in price, service, and value. Unlike other agencies that only sell one brand of insurance, Hibbs Insurance is an independent agency that works for its policyholders when they have a claim. The agency is not beholden to any one company, so policyholders do not have to change agencies as their insurance and service needs change. As consultants, Hibbs Insurance works with each policyholder to determine their specific needs. As value hunters, we look after our clients’ pocketbooks to find the best combination of price, coverage, and service.
