About Coyne

What are the benefits of using an independent insurance agent?

E. J. Coyne & Company represents several different insurance companies, not just one company, which means we can offer you a choice of insurance plans. We shop around to provide you the best combination of competitive pricing, appropriate coverage, and consistent, personalized service.

With one phone call to us, you can find a full range of insurance products for your personal and business needs. And, as your needs change or insurance plans change, you can switch insurance companies and still work with your same, trusted insurance agent.

How can I lower the costs of my insurance?

When you use an independent insurance agent for all of your insurance policies, we can make sure that none of your coverage overlaps, apply discounts for purchasing multiple policies, and determine that you are not paying for things you don’t need. Before you buy a car, call us to see what it will cost to insure it. More expensive cars cost more to repair, maintain and insure. Performance cars cost more to insure than family sedans. The safety equipment you select may also lead to a variety of discounts. Consider increasing your deductibles. By raising the amount you pay out-of-pocket for losses, you can save more on your policy. Drive safely. A clean driving record can potentially lower your insurance rates. Some insurance companies provide discounts based on the payment options you choose.

What should I do if I have an auto accident?

  1. Call the police. Get help for the injured.

  4. Carefully examine damage to the other vehicle.
  5. Do not admit fault.
  6. Discuss the accident only with the police, your insurance company, and your insurance agent.
  7. Notify your insurance agent immediately. If it is after hours, see Companies Represented for your insurance company’s 24 hour hotline.

What types of business insurance do I need?

Just like your home and your car, your business needs to be protected from loss, damage, and liability. In addition, your business is your source of income, so you need protection from the potential loss of that income.

If you have a home-based business, your homeowner’s policy may not provide all the protection you need. Call us to review your policy.
