Welcome to the Thomas Agency/McHenry Farmers Insurance agency. “We are Farmers”, and we hope that you will give us an opportunity to earn your business. Our home, auto, life and business policies provide the best and most complete insurance coverage available. If rates are the issue, you’ll find that Farmers is saving our customers up to 40% for the same or better coverage.
This blog is designed to help both existing and prospective Farmers clients learn, understand and stay up to date on current events at Farmers and in the insurance industry as a whole. At Farmers, we feel very strongly that the more you know about insurance, the better Farmers looks.
Farmers is the 3rd largest underwriter of personal property and casualty insurance in the US, along with a wide variety of life products to provide the security you want for your loved ones. We have been insuring families and businesses since 1928, and are triple A rated. Farmers insurance agents are the best trained agents in the industry. We have both an extensive reserve agent program and the now famous University of Farmers (it really does exist), that all Farmers agents must graduate from. In addition, we also have a required continuing education program, that ensures your agent is completely up to date in their knowledge of the industry, and how to best serve you. What all this means is that you can count on Farmers to be there when you need them, with the ability to meet your needs both financially and personally during a time of crisis, or just to answer policy questions. In addition to your Farmers agent, you also have the entire Farmers Insurance Company with 24-7 toll free numbers and staffed with equally knowledgeable representatives ready to assist you should you need it at a time when your agent may be unavailable.
As Professor Burke states “Learn what you didn’t know you didn’t know about insurance”. Most people don’t like to talk or think about insurance due to its perceived complexity, and quite frankly, consider it a hassle. We here at Farmers try to take the complexity (and hassle) out of insurance with simple but accurate answers to the questions you want to and should ask before purchasing insurance. This blog will be for the expressed purpose of making many of these answers available without having to leave the comfort of your own home, or even speaking with an agent on the phone. We believe that once you know the facts about insurance, and what Farmers has to offer, you will be ready to speak to one of our agents about your personal insurance needs.
