Garrity Insurance Review

In this Garrity Insurance Review, we are talking about an Insurance company located in the great state of Massachusetts. Founded in 1923, Garrity Insurance has become one of the fastest growing full-service insurance agencies in the greater Boston and New England area.

Garrity Insurance is committed to delivering the highest quality property and casualty insurance products to individuals and businesses in Eastern Massachusetts. Garrity Insurance is accredited with the BBB and maintains an A+ rating. That’s really one of the reasons we thought it would be a great idea to review them. Also, they would technically be the first company we have reviewed that is in the state of Massachusetts. So, let’s jump into it.

 

Garrity Insurance Review: Services

In this Garrity Insurance Review, we found that Garrity Insurance offers a wide range of Insurance services. All of which fall under two categories. Personal Insurance & Commercial Insurance. Underneath Personal Insurance Services you’ve got: Life Insurance, Auto Insurance, Home Owner Insurance, Flood Insurance, Boat Insurance, RV Insurance, and Personal Umbrella Liability (Which has nothing to do with actual umbrellas).

Under Commercial Insurance Services you’ve got: Specialty Programs (Which means there are certain types of businesses they specialize in helping. Here is a list of the types of businesses that they specialize in: Auto Body and Auto Repair Shops, Contractors, Restaurants, Retailers, Offices, Real Estate Owners and Developers, Wholesalers, Distributors, Manufacturers, Machine Shops, Printers.

Garrity Insurance also works with Condominium Associations. Garrity Insurance insures over 100 condominium associations in the Greater Boston area. The last under Commercial Insurance would be Workers Compensation, which helps pay for necessary medical treatment related to an injury and partially compensates the employee for lost wages.

 

Garrity Insurance Review: Legacy & Credibility

According to The Better Business Bureau website, Garrity Insurance has been in Business for almost 100 years. Which I found remarkably hard to believe. After visiting the official Garrity Insurance website, I was surprised to find that it was true. Which is quite remarkable. You don’t come along too many companies that have been around for almost a 100 year.

What’s more remarkable is that they have kept up with the changing times. They have stayed ahead of the curve when it comes to consumer accessibility. They haven’t fallen into the old pitfall of getting left behind that some old companies sometimes fall into. It’s hard to change and adapt, and sometimes companies can’t do it. Sometimes their services are specific to a certain era or time, and the dramatic changes that constantly happen in the world of business just bury some people.

Fortunately, Garrity Insurance has stood the test of time, and we are certainly glad they did. They certainly deserve that A+ and BBB Accreditations.

 

Garrity Insurance Review: Consumer Testimonials

Here’s another testimonial we found online:

“We moved from Minneapolis 8 years back and found Garrity by chance. We’ve never looked back or even considered using a different provider. They are absolutely the best in terms of service and support. Love it when everyone knows your name and account info intimately. Keep it up team Garrity!”

I found that most of the review were from people who have consistently been satisfied with the service that Garrity Insurance has provided. Which is a really great thing to see.

Shaver Insurance Agency Review 2

Shaver Insurance Agency Review 2

Shaver Insurance Agency Review 2

In this second Shaver Insurance Agency Review, we are talking about an Insurance company located in Fontana, CA that we have talked about before. Back in 2015, they received a 5 Star rating. We will go over their services, track record, consumers testimonials, and at the end we will decide whether they will keep their 5 Star rating with the CFRB. So, let’s begin this second Shaver Insurance Agency Review.

 

Shaver Insurance Agency Review 2: Refresher

Shaver Insurance Agency has been in Fontana, CA since 1985. Prior to that, it was Washburn Agency. They are a BBB Accredited Company with an A+ rating that apparently has been in business for 32 years. Which is a long time, but from looking at their online activity lately, they don’t appear to be very active. Though, that is something we will discuss later.

Being an Insurance company, they cover a whole spectrum of services. Though I am led to believe in this Shaver Insurance Agency Review that they are most notably known for their life and automobile insurance services. Shaver Insurance Agency services those in need of:

  • Auto Insurance
  • Home Insurance
  • Health Insurance
  • Life Insurance
  • Commercial Insurance
  • Mobile Home Insurance
  • RV Insurance
  • Renters Insurance
  • Commercial Auto & Property
  • Mechanical Breakdown Protection
  • Stand Alone Mechanical Breakdown Insurance
  • Life and Health Insurance
  • Trucking Insurance
  • Fleet Insurance
  • Earthquake Insurance

There is an obvious emphasis on helping those insurance their motor vehicles and mobile homes. In writing this second Shaver Insurance Agency Review I found that they really appreciate large things with wheels on them.

 

Shaver Insurance Agency Review 2: Recent Activity and Credibility

In writing this second Shaver Insurance Agency Review I considered their recent activity online. The internet, while now considered as an essential tool today, can sometimes be a double-edged sword. Giving information, but being misleading and leading people astray. I have noticed a pattern recently with many different companies that have been around for a long time. They hop on board the internet train and then they go dark. There’s a million reason why this happens. In the case of Shaver Insurance Agency in this Shaver Insurance Agency Review, I have noticed the same pattern. Shaver Insurance Agency has allegedly been in Business for 32 years. You would think that would warrant some level of legacy, and yet their activity and web presence has not grown at all since we last reviewed them. If anything, it has shrunk and they have become harder to get information on.

When looking for Shaver Insurance Agency online for this Shaver Insurance Agency Review, I didn’t find much other than their website (which now is apparently is a different one than the one listed on their BBB page), A yelp page with one review, and a listing on the yellow pages websites. Certainly not a whole lot.

Why does this matter? Why do you need to take this into account when looking for the right company to help you out? Companies that have a lot of activity and hundreds of reviews shows transparency, a desire to gain the trust of the consumer, and do right by them. In the last couple of years, we have seen no effort on their part to improve their status.

 

Shaver Insurance Agency Review 2: Consumer Testimonial

Here is a Shaver Insurance Agency Review on Yelp that was written in 2016. Interestingly enough, the consumer testimonial we found last time is nowhere to be found. Meaning it was either retracted or deleted. Here’s the 2016 Yelp Review:

“I love a home owned business! This place is located down a small street in Fontana and is great! I have been helped with my auto insurance to ensure I have the best coverage at a fair price! Go here when you need help figuring what insurance plan you need!”

So, Shaver Insurance Agency is in someone’s home. Which isn’t necessarily a red flag for new companies, but for a company that has been in business for 32 it sure makes me question what’s going on. It’s certainly new information to us and makes me wonder about the validity of some of their claims.

 

Shaver Insurance Review 2: Conclusion

So where exactly do we stand with Shaver Insurance Agency? To be honest I am not entirely sure. On one hand, they have received accolades from the Better Business Bureau, but in writing this second review, I was met with many things that contradict their accreditations. Is there evidence of foul play or dishonesty? No, not at all. Though I don’t think I would be first to recommend them anymore. Simply because their presence is vague and slightly all over the place. I want to believe there are trustworthy, but we haven’t heard much from them in a while. And when it’s your money on the line, you must be careful. It’s best to assume the worst and stay safe, then assume the best and get screwed over.

In this Shaver Insurance Review, we are giving Shaver Insurance Agency 4 Stars instead of their previous 5 stars for becoming evidentially more of a coin toss than a sure bet.
