Allegheny Insurance has added Cincinnati, Motorists Mutual, Farmers and Mechanics and GuideOne insurance companies to their already extensive line of carriers, providing customers around West Virginia an even broader array of options.

Allegheny, an independent insurance agency, has been providing personalized options to people since 1893.

“Our status as an independent agent allows us to seek out the best options for our customers,” President Jay Wallace said. “Even more important than our insurance partners, however, are our people. We provide personalized service that ensures you get the coverage you need – no more and no less.”

Allegheny Insurance serves people from offices in Elkins and Beckley, with customers located around West Virginia. Wallace stressed that Allegheny and its people understand that no two customers are the same and no two insurance policies should be either.

“We tailor policies to fit individual needs and lifestyles,” Wallace said. “We don’t just take information over the telephone in 15 minutes or have you fill out an Internet questionnaire. We build relationships and get to know people and their specific requirements.”

Allegheny’s new carriers will help do that, Wallace noted.

Cincinnati is a solid and stable company offering multiple lines of insurance including commercial lines, bond and executive risk, machinery and equipment coverage, personal lines, excess and surplus and life, as well as leasing and financing services through affiliated companies. They have access to a broad range of products allowing Allegheny’s customers to tailor unique, value-added packages.

Motorists, headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, is a major regional insurer that operates in a market of more than 46 million people with a network of more than 4,000 independent agents. It is the lead company in The Motorists Insurance Group and is composed of 10 property and casualty, life and brokerage companies.

Allegheny Insurance is proud to offer Farmers and Mechanics Property and Casualty insurance, which represents over 450 licensed agents with more than a 130 independent agencies throughout the state of West Virginia.

Backed by 64 years of proven success, GuideOne will be a value added carrier to Allegheny’s line of partners. With more than 43,000 commercial customers and 127,500 personal lines customers, GuideOne has the experience and risk management solutions to meet our customer’s needs.

Allegheny Insurance offers a full line of options for personal or commercial customers, including auto, life, health, long-term care, disability, general liability, workers’ compensation and many more.

“Selecting the appropriate coverage can seem intimidating at first,” Wallace said. “We work closely with people because we realize it’s not their job to be experts in insurance. That’s our job.”

There are other advantages to doing business with a company such as Allegheny Insurance. The firm is based in West Virginia and supports its local communities in a number of ways.

“We’re right in your back yard, and we’re easy to reach 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” Wallace said. “We have the experience you need and the personal touch you deserve.”
