Auto Insurance

The right auto insurance policy can help get you back on the road quickly if your car is damaged or destroyed by accident, fire, theft, or other covered event. Your policy may also provide protection against medical and legal expenses resulting from injury, loss of life, or property damage caused by an accident involving your vehicle.

An auto insurance policy is a contract between you and an insurance company. You pay a premium, and in exchange, the insurance company promises to pay for specific car-related financial losses during the term of the policy. Work with us to determine the best coverage for you.

Insurance for cars, trucks, boats and more!

Beck Insurance Agency can insure your Motorcycle, Classic Car, Motor Home & RV, Boat & Jet Ski, and ATV too! Contact us for more information today!

How much auto insurance is right for you?

Based in Archbold, Ohio, the team at Beck Insurance Agency understands the auto insurance needs of our customers.

Auto insurance requirements vary by state. In some states, to drive you must carry:
Liability coverage – to pay for losses you cause others, or:
No-fault coverage – to pay you and your passengers for medical and related expenses caused by injuries from a car accident, regardless of who is at fault, or
Both liability and no-fault coverage.

We write insurance in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida and would be happy to help you ensure you have the right coverage for where you live.
Even in states where coverage isn’t required, drivers must, by law, be able to pay for losses they cause others. Having insurance is the simplest way for most people to comply. To finance a car, it is usually necessary to have insurance which covers damage to your vehicle. This includes:

Collision Insurance

Collision insurance coverage pays for damage caused to your vehicle in an automobile accident. Standard collision coverage will pay for any repairs up to the fair market value of your car. Collision coverage usually also comes with an insurance deductible. It’s the amount of money you pay toward repairs before your collision insurance kicks in. The higher the deductible you’re willing to pay, the less the collision coverage will cost.

Comprehensive Insurance (Other than Collision)

Comprehensive insurance covers damage done to your car in some way other than a collision, such as if it were stolen or vandalized. Flood, hurricane, theft, windshield damage and fire are also events usually covered by comprehensive car insurance. Like collision, comprehensive will pay up to the fair market value of your car (less your insurance deductible). And although it’s not legally required by any state, you will probably need it if your car is financed.

What does a CIC Designation mean for you?

Thursday, November 9th, 2017

Today’s insurance and risk management industry is vast, complex, and full of confusing variety. As you consider what kind of coverage you need for your unique set of risks and exposures, keep in mind that training as a Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) has prepared us to be the competent and proven advisors you need. Our drive is what led us to go for the CIC designation. It represents a career-long commitment to stay on top of important industry changes and to be aware of new risks that arise so that we may better serve our clients.

Beck Insurance is not the kind of agency that is content to just collect annual commissions. We strive to be the best that we can be. We use our education to gain an in-depth understanding of the nuances of complex risks and the best way to address them. Training to become a CIC includes 100 classroom hours and five comprehensive exams. Additionally, we attend far more continuing education courses than required every year to keep our knowledge and skills up to date in order to ensure that you always receive the attention, care, and current information necessary to make your coverage decisions.

The CIC designation and pin are marks of distinction that demonstrate our commitment to professional excellence and leadership in the insurance industry. We are proud to be among 31,500 CICs in the country, “the best and most knowledgeable insurance practitioners in the nation.”

Auto-Owners Insurance Named 2017 Company of the Year by National Association of Professional Insurance Agents

Friday, November 3rd, 2017

The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents issued the following news release:

The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) has named Auto-Owners Insurance Company as the recipient of its prestigious 2017 Company Award of Excellence. The presentation was made on September 15, 2017 at a gala ceremony held in conjunction with PIA’s Board of Directors meeting in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

“Auto-Owners is highly deserving of this, our association’s highest company honor,” said PIA National President Gary Blackwell, in presenting the award. “For independent agents, Auto-Owners is a true partner. Many of us have placed Auto-Owners Insurance high among the carriers we represent. There are many good reasons for this: Financial strength and stability. Excellent service. Superior products. Unparalleled quality. And ease of doing business.”

“Perhaps the most important reason we are so loyal to Auto-Owners, is that Auto-Owners is loyal to independent agents,” Blackwell said. “It’s a perfect match!”

The PIA National Company Award of Excellence honors a company for its commitment to PIA, to the American Agency System and to furthering the interests of professional insurance agents by creating a better business environment.

“We are honored and humbly accept this award on behalf of the associates of Auto-Owners that make such awards possible,” said Chairman & CEO Jeff Harrold, who along with Mary Pierce, senior vice president, marketing & sales, was on hand for the presentation.

“In our 101-year history, we have marketed exclusively through the independent agency system and see no reason to change. Like the PIA, whose focus is on enhancing the capabilities and skills of their members, we have found the better we serve our agents, the mutually stronger we become.”

Established in 1916 and headquartered in Lansing, Michigan, Auto-Owners Insurance Group is the 17th-largest property/casualty insurance group in the nation, based on written premium of over $6.3 billion. The company also ranks 398th on the Fortune 500 list.

Auto-Owners, which employs 4,900 associates in the 26 states in which it operates, is one of 12 insurance carrier groups in the U.S. to receive the highest rating possible, A++ Superior, by A.M. Best, which is a nationally recognized rating agency for insurance companies.
