Our history

DeWitt-Tarkington Insurance Services, Inc. was originally founded by Ed Tarkington in 1954. Our offices were originally located in the Fort Early Building, later moving to our current location in the Tarkington Building in 1966. We are a leading provider of Automobile and Homeowners Insurance in Central Virginia. We take pride in the fact that we take the time to make sure our clients have all of the coverages that are needed. Nobody likes surprises. In addition, we offer our clients our annual "On Your Side" review to ensure that your coverage is up to date, give advice on new product offerings and look for ways to lower premiums. By virtue of toll free numbers and the Web, you can make changes to your policy or report claims 24/7. We have always had a strong presence in the Commercial Insurance market, insuring businesses from Maine to Texas. If you own a business and would like a second opinion on your insurance, you have come to the right place! Whether you need General Liability insurance, Business Automobile, Commercial Property, or Umbrella Liability, we can do it all.

Why us

Our agency provides a full line of insurance products including Automobile, Homeowners, Life and Business. We take pride in that we take the time to make sure that our customers are provided with value added service. We will take the time to ask the right questions. While price is an important consideration when purchasing insurance, it's very important to select the proper coverage and deductibles that meet your needs and your budget. It's what we do.
