Everyone can say they offer great service but I had not ever experienced it, until today - THE GREATEST! Here is my story: Several months ago, I moved my insurance to The Southern Agency and they saved me money; a lot of money. Today a piece of metal came off of a truck and seriously damaged my Toyota Camry. I made one call to The Southern Agency and not only did I have a tow truck to my rescue but I EVEN HAD A RENTAL CAR waiting on me at the body shop. I LOVE THE SOUTHERN AGENCY AGENTS! If you are looking for the best, these guys are it!

Great company. Derek went above and beyond to make sure I had the best coverage at the best price. He was patient in explaining all of the details, not the least bit pushy, and makes himself available for help and guidance should any questions arise.
