Forest Insurance

Independent Insurance Agent in Forest Park, IL

About us

Welcome to a better insurance experience!

Forest Insurance is a full-service, family-owned independent insurance agency serving the communities of Oak Park, River Forest, Forest Park, and greater Chicagoland since 1957 with a vast array of high-quality auto, home, commercial, business, and life insurance products. And while we've evolved over the years, we've never lost our personal touch or our commitment to quality. We take great pride in providing superior coverage that delivers better value and greater peace of mind-and boast a staff of fully-accredited advisors with more professional insurance designations that any other local agency.

Because we value quality, we work with only A-rated (preferred) insurance companies such as Chubb, Hanover, Hartford, MetLife Auto & Home, Nationwide Private Client, Progressive, Safeco, Travelers, and more. From local agencies to major Illinois companies, no one can match the array of coverages, company access, expertise, service, higher limits, higher payouts per claim, or value that we offer.

Contact us today for quote. We will gladly review your current policy, provide a side-by-side analysis of what you have vs. what is available, and guide you through recommended coverages and limits.
