  • Auto Insurance

    Understanding the coverage you buy is important, but the language of underwriting can be a little difficult for those who are new to it. That's why John F Baxter Inc. focuses on explaining auto insurance coverage in a common sense way that members in Chincoteague appreciate. That way, it's easier to enjoy your vehicle with the assurance you understand what is covered in the event of an accident.

    Auto policies tend to start with liability coverage, and the right amount can depend on the vehicle you drive, the state's requirements, and other factors. Once you have the liability package you need, collision coverage is there to help take care of any covered damage your vehicle takes in the event of an accident, and comprehensive packages are there to cover you in the event of an incident when the vehicle is not in motion. John F Baxter works with Nationwide to provide drivers with a wide range of coverage choices. After you find the right coverage levels for your vehicle, we will apply discounts you may qualify for such as for safety equipment in the vehicle or your safe driving history.

    Finding out more about our policy options is easy. Our offices can be reached at (757) 336-6536, and agents are happy to take set appointments for in-person consultations at our office located at 4153 Main St.
