We are independent insurance agents.
That means we shop around to find the most affordable insurance, all for you.

Why Choose an Independent Insurance Agent?

You may think it's not important "where" you buy your insurance, but this misconception could be costing you money, service and protection.

Look at all of the money that you could be saving...

Buying insurance is not like buying bread or milk. Insurance is an important safety net for your family, home, car or business. There is a difference in where you buy your protection.

Your Independent Insurance Agent:
  • Is a licensed professional with strong customer and community ties.
  • Provides excellent service and competitive prices because he or she can access the insurance coverage from more than one company.
  • Is not beholden to any one company; thus, policyholders do not need to change agencies as your insurance and service needs change.
  • Assists policyholders when they have claims.
  • Is a consumer's consultant working to determine the consumer's needs.
  • Offers consumers a choice of insurance plans and programs.
  • Is a value hunter who looks after the consumer's pocketbook in finding the best combination of price, coverage and service.
  • Offers one-stop shopping for a full range of products - home, renters, auto, business, life and health.
  • Can periodically review a policyholder's coverage to keep up with changing insurance needs.
  • Treats policyholders like a person, not just another number.
  • Customer satisfaction is the key to an independent agent's livelihood. So, serving policyholders is an independent agent's most important concern.

We Bring Real Savings to Real People.
Don't just take our word for it, take a look at the numbers.

Many people do not realize there are four sources for insurance:
  • Independent Insurance Agents - Represent an average of eight insurance companies and research with these firms to find consumers the best combination of price, coverage and service.

    Insurance is Confusing.
    We're Here To HElp You.

  • Captive Agents - Sell consumers the insurance of only one company.
  • Telephone Representatives - Offer consumers the insurance of one company via the telephone.
  • Internet Sites - Consumers fill out an application online and receive an insurance quote without any help or direction from a qualified professional.


I am a long time customer of your agency. As my family, and cars, increased so did my insurance rate. I kept watching those commercials about people switching Insurance Companies and experiencing great discounts. I wondered if that would ever happen to me.

Then one day I got a call from Nancy Coppola, she had been my agent since I first came to Petruzelo. I am always scared when receiving phone calls from Insurance agents, but this time Nancy had discovered a new company that would cut my rate in almost half. I can't begin to tell you what it feels like to have someone actually want to help families reduce their expenses. That savings will go a long way in helping me send my son to college.

On behalf of all the hard working families out thereā€¦.thank you, to your agency and especially Nancy for her professionalism, dedication, and commitment to my families bottom line.
