We work for you…

As an independent agency, we aren’t tied down to one insurance carrier. We can bring multiple options to the table. We work for you, not the insurance company, to find the right coverage, for the right reasons, at the right price. We help you understand all the ins and outs of your coverage. But it doesn’t stop there.

We continually review your coverages to make sure you’re always getting exactly what you need.

No more, and definitely no less.

Their concern not only for our firm but also for the people in our buildings that were directly impacted was very much appreciated by all. It showed that first and foremost, Mr. Childs and the Hutchinson Traylor organization had the best interest of all involved. We thank them for a job well done!

“I have been a client of Hutchinson Traylor for over 10 years. Hutchinson Traylor has provided both commercial and personal insurance to me. Edward Smith has always provided me with the most professional advice to protect my assets. Occasionally I would seek competitive quotes. Hutchinson Traylor always provided the best insurance coverage at the best competitive price.

When claims have happened, Hutchinson Traylor has been prompt in processing the claim to my satisfaction. I was recently in an auto accident and confined to my home. Robin Roberts, the claims processor, came to my home to help me file my claim. Even offered to run some errands if needed. Also, recently my home suffered water damage. Robin had a water damage restoration team on site the same day. Three things to me are the hallmark of Hutchinson Traylor: 1. Quality Insurance 2. Competitive premiums 3. Outstanding service.”
