    After devoting a great deal of time and energy to choosing your vehicle, make sure to get the right protection when insuring your vehicle. Garland D Thompson specializes in making it easy for Raleigh drivers to protect one of their largest investments with insurance, which is why we're working with Nationwide to give each of our members true peace of mind when they're behind the wheel and even when they're not.

    Even if this isn't your first time getting insurance, the number of options you have to choose from can be overwhelming. At Garland D Thompson, we not only provide you with the basic types of auto insurance that nearly every driver needs, but we go the extra mile to make sure you have the exact level of liability, personal injury protection, comprehensive, collision, and under/uninsured motorist coverage you require. This way, you aren't paying for more protection than you truly need. We can also work with you to assess whether additional drivers or a family member should be added to your insurance protection in order that everyone benefits from an airtight plan. Once you have your plan in place, we hope you'll sit down with us to discuss any major changes that have taken place in your life, such as moving, driving more or less, adding new features to your insured vehicle, or changing jobs. All of these factors can have an impact on your protection, and we always want to make sure that protection is up-to-date.

    Once you're ready to discuss your auto insurance needs with an agent and agency who care, we hope you'll give us a call at (919) 781-6564. You're also more than welcome to visit us at 3130-106 Fairhill Dr.

  • Life Insurance

    Life is full of uncertainties. Your family’s financial well-being shouldn’t be one of them. As you shop for life insurance in Raleigh, you likely have many questions running through your mind:

    • “What are the benefits of term vs. permanent policies?”

    • “How much does a life insurance policy cost?"

    Garland D Thompson and Garland D Thompson can help you find the right policy to protect your legacy and provide financial security for your loved ones when you are no longer living.

    There are a variety of factors you must consider to determine the amount of coverage you need. First, estimate the amount of debt, final expenses and other financial obligations you might leave behind. Also, think about your income and how the loss of it will affect your family. You want a policy that has a death benefit that covers those costs and leaves a financial cushion.

    Next, decide what kind of policy you want. There are several types of life insurance available. Base your decision on what you can comfortably afford and your current and future financial goals.

    Finally, carefully review all policy documents. A life insurance agent can provide clarity on any information or policy language you do not understand. If you have special considerations, do not hesitate to inform one of our team members.

    Insurance is a smart investment. Getting the right policy is easier than you think. Call (919) 781-6564 for an appointment with an agent. Feel free to stop by 3130-106 Fairhill Dr,Raleigh,NC,27612 to discuss Nationwide coverage options in person.
