Tanner Insurance Agency, Inc. is a locally owned, independent insurance agency that can shop around your home, auto, business or farm insurance with multiple carriers to find you the best value.
The agency was started in 1984 by Bruce Tanner from Madison NY, who specialized in farm insurance. Keith Peavey also from Madison NY joined Bruce in 1990, after receiving both his property casualty and life licenses. Tanner Insurance Agency, Inc. opened a main street office on Route 20 in Madison in the spring of 1995 and saw tremendous growth in all lines of insurance. In the winter of 2001, we opened a second location at 1070 Upper Lenox Ave in Oneida. On November 1, 2002, the Madison office moved into the current location at 7324 Route 20, Madison. This gave us more room for our expanding agency.
In January 2010, we purchased a third location at 6078 State Highway 12 in Norwich. In October 2017, we purchased a fourth location at 8261 Brewerton Road in Cicero. We currently have a staff of fifteen between the three offices in Madison, Oneida, & Cicero NY.
Why do business with Tanner Insurance Agency?
Unlike a captive, or direct insurance company who only offers their own proprietary products, our agency is 100% independent of any one company. Many insurance consumers don’t fully understand just how important that really is.
When it comes to something as important as insurance, it’s imperative that you work with an agency who has an in-depth knowledge of multiple insurance products, companies, and guidelines — not just one.
At the end of the day, what separates one agent from another, is their ability to proactively service their policy holders, and their knowledge of the insurance industry, products, and different situations that may present themselves to their clients.
