Thornton Agency, Inc.

Independent Insurance Agent in Parsippany, NJ

About us

The right coverage at the right price. Leave your insurance headaches on our desk!

At Thornton Agency, we advise our clients on their individual risk exposures and solutions. Your protection against loss is our goal. We have insurance products available as solutions in most cases, but everyone or every business has its own unique risk profile, and more importantly, risk tolerance. Despite what you hear and see on TV, all insurance policies are not the same. There are many more differences between companies and policies than simply price. You cannot adequately and accurately evaluate insurance needs and choices in 15 minutes. Policies can be up to 500 pages or more. You can bet the devil is in the details.

As an Independent Agent, Thornton Agency represents many different insurance companies that specialize in different segments of the market. We value our clients, and don't need to shoehorn you into one product. We can offer you options.

Let Thornton Agency invest the time and interest, to help you make the best insurance decisions for your future.
