Carlton Insurance Agency, Inc.

Independent Insurance Agent in Beulaville, NC

About us


In 1934, a North Carolina farmer from Duplin County named David H. Carlton began representing Jefferson Standard Insurance Company. Mr. Carlton worked with and served other farmers and businesses in the community to build what would become Carlton Insurance Agency. An office was opened in Warsaw, North Carolina in 1945 where two sons, Hugh and Fisher Carlton, would later join their father. Together they grew the agency business by providing service known for its competence, customer care and honesty. Over the next 80 years, work with local businesses and farmers evolved into more comprehensive service with an added focus in commercial coverage interests serving retail and wholesale grocery customers, hog and poultry farming accounts and other agribusinesses - local and regional, as well as main street small businesses and personal exposures: home and automobile. The agency has grown over the years to provide coverage for the expanding needs of its customers, ranging from motorcycles and ATV's to boats, big and small.

Carlton Insurance remains loyal to the foundational tenets for competence and integrity established by David H. Carlton and his sons, Hugh and Fisher Carlton. Today, a skilled team continues this commitment to serve all customers with this same vision.

I have the best agent in Doreen Smith she stays on top of everything and is so helpful when I have a question. I had a piece of equipment stolen, my insurance and Carlton Insurance stepped up to plate for me.

I have been doing my business insurance with them for seven years. Wonderful company to work with. Great customer service.

February 17, 2022

I worked with Vonda! It was a crazy time for our company. We purchased a building and were slated to close in 2 weeks. We were in communication with several insurance companies, one of which was Carlton. Every question, and I had many, was answered by Vonda. More importantly, Vonda knew and made me aware of questions I should be asking and situations we needed to concern ourselves with in the immediacy and future. I used her information while talking to other companies to insure that I was comparing the same things. Needless to say, even though CarltonInsurance Agency did not provide the cheapest insurance, I am confident through working with Vonda, that we are with the right company to appropriately insure our property. After closing, there have been follow up conversations, and each time we speak with Vonda she is pleasant, informative, concise and clear. She allows me to give extra information without making it seem irrelevant. Thank you
