Customer Reviews

May 4, 2020

As a "smaller" small business owner it can be tough to find someone to go out of their way to offer guidance and support in something as necessary as insurance. Gail Hallex did that and more. Thank you so much and I look forward to working with you as we grow.

Love this company. I've always received great, honest, and efficient customer service

Jack Hoey  15 weeks ago I have used Pinckney-Carter for years. They have consistently provided great service and competitive quotes for all my insurance needs. I have worked with Rachel Lowman during that time and she is outstanding - knows her business, is responsive, and asks the right questions to make sure I get the coverage I need to have. It says a lot about a company that they retain their staff over the years.

May 4, 2020

I have been dealing with Pinckney Carter for all my insurance needs since fall of 2017 they have been very professional and expedient anytime I have called needing something done ASAP it's always taken care of with courtesy and efficiency.

I have been with your company since the military moved me to South Carolina in 1985, your company has been AWESOME. I didn't have to use the insurance but maybe a couple of times since 85, but ya'll were always so professional and efficient each time. I want to thank-you and please pass this along to your higher ups, that I will be your biggest Ally in Columbia SC and talk about Pinckney-Carter for the good things you are for as long as I am still breathing. The definition of a GREAT company is being there for your customer when needed, and that is exactly what your company always did for me. I thank-you and Pinckney-Carter from the bottom of my heart and I am sure we will cross paths again. Take care.

I have been using Pinckney Carter for many years & would recommend them to everyone as their customer service is outstanding! They are personal, friendly, find the right plan for you, & are always on the ball. When I got in an accident, I didn't know my policy # & I called them & they immediately pulled it up & gave it to me. I also had some questions & they went over some info that I needed to know right then. They were very helpful & quick & calming. It seems like every time I call for help someone is always readily available to help me. They treat me like I'm their most important customer and when someone can do that, that's good service!

May 4, 2020

They respond immediately to any question I may have, even on weekends, which I don't expect. Cooper is very responsive and has been there with us through some pretty bad times. Can't say enough good things about this company!

May 4, 2020

Ginny is the best! Responds quickly and saved me over $1,000.00 per year. I've referred many of clients for quotes

May 4, 2020

We couldn't be happier with the service and professionalism we receive from Pinckney Carter's staff/producers. We have worked closely with John and Roxanne for roughly 4 years and they have been so helpful with our business insurance needs and requests. Highly recommend this great group of professionals!
