  • Auto Insurance
    Understanding your insurance coverage should never involve having to learn a new language. That's why Robert J Strauss and Countywide Insurance Agency are proud to be working with Nationwide to provide robust, easily customizable policies explained in language that is easy to follow. We understand that our members are not insurance experts, and that's why they come to us. We work hard to make sure every new policyholder understands their terms, exclusions, and limits so they get the coverage they need to drive with peace of mind in Jefferson Valley.

    This starts by building a policy, and for auto insurance that usually means starting with liability coverage. The best balance of coverage here respects state minimums and goes beyond them when necessary to meet your individual needs. The next step is to look into collision and comprehensive coverage, and to set appropriate deductibles and optional features that go with each one. Discounts are also available for drivers who qualify with the right safety features installed and safe driving records.

    Get the coverage you need in language that makes it easy to understand. Call (914) 245-4500 to get started with quotes or questions, or to schedule an in-person appointment for your consultation. In-person meetings are held in our office at 135 E Main St.

Choose from packages designed for auto service businesses, retail businesses, food service companies, service businesses, or office companies. We can even create a custom plan based on your company's specific needs. BOP plans traditionally include property damage, general liability insurance, and income loss coverage due to an interruption, but we can also offer cyber liability, hired and non-owned auto insurance, accounts receivable, and several other options for your business.

    You may be wondering why you should choose a policy through Nationwide and Nationwide Insurance: Countywide Insurance Agency.
