Independent Insurance Agent in Oakmont, PA

About us

Personal Service
At Dinnin & Parkins you receive instant personal service from one of our experienced team members, not an automated recording at a call center. As a trusted part of the community for generations, our mission is to be your advisor for all your insurance needs. We are available to review coverages, make policy changes, and discuss your billing details if needed.

Should you have an insurance claim our agency will not only help you understand what your policy covers, but also assist you in reporting the claim. Claims can be overwhelming, and if you require immediate assistance, we can and will help you during the claims process.

This is a great service that a captive agent can't offer. If your relationship with the carrier you currently do business with no longer meets your insurance needs, Dinnin & Parkins has the ability to find you a new carrier within our agency if necessary. You don't have to lose that personal touch you developed and move to a new agency. As an independent agent we have multiple carriers to find you the perfect fit no matter what stage you are in life when it comes to your insurance.

Better Rates
Generally, you are going to have a bigger opportunity for a better rate by choosing to work with an independent insurance agency near you. First off, when quoting any new business at Dinnin & Parkins we have multiple carriers available to find you the best coverage's at the best available pricing.

Independent agents also have the ability to move you to a new carrier when there is a significant rate change to your policy. There are instances where moving carriers can be at a disadvantage. However, Dinnin & Parkins can use this time to provide you with a review of your policies and determine if moving you to another carrier is the best option for you.

A captive agent cannot provide you with that same service if they are only representing the one insurance company.

Customer Reviews

January 19, 2024

I had been with my same bundled personal insurance carrier for 30 years, but its premiums increased annually (even though I had no auto collision claims) to the point that I decided to shop around. My first mistake was to fill out a general form on line that lead to a bombardment of solicitations. I decided to reach out to an independent insurance agency that worked with multiple underwriters. I was connected to Michelle who handles personal insurance lines at the agency. She was great! She took all my information and then filtered it through the underwriters. I received quotes that provided more coverage for less premiums. I am very pleased with this agency and with Michelle in particular. I highly recommend the agency and Michelle.

Best insurance provider around! I switched to Dinnin & Parkins earlier this year for my business insurance. They made the switch very easy and stress free. They are always quick to answer any questions I have and make sure I have everything I need. Highly recommend! Thanks to Pam and the team!

Nice to actually speak to a person when you call and not an automated prompt system. Always responsive to whatever the need in a timely manner.

I emailed Dinnin & Parkins for some help with and insurance certificate and got a reply within the hour. Their customer service is the best I have experienced. It is always a pleasure doing business with them. I wish there were more businesses that treated their customers as well as they do.

Michelle Clark is always very professional, courteous, and prompt in helping with my policies. I am part of the third generation in my family to use Dinnin & Parkins. Always recommend to everyone I can. Keep up the great work. Thank you!

Michelle Clark saved me fortune on my car insurance and the transition to a new provider was effortless. I have better overall coverage while paying less than I was before. Scott Thompson works at the same agency and was enormously helpful when my brother's health insurance was cancelled for no reason. The atmosphere at this agency is friendly and professional. Highly recommended.

I have my auto insurance with Dinnin and Parkins, and they have been nothing short of amazing! Kim George is a great representative and has been extremely helpful with anything and everything I've needed for my car insurance!
