  • Auto Insurance

    Taking the time to understand auto insurance concepts, like the difference between "collision" and "comprehensive" coverage, can be frustrating when you are trying to shop on your own and you just want to know what kind of protection you will get. That's why Grimes Insurance Group, LLC prioritizes communication with clients, so our agents can translate industry terms into coverage explanations that leave drivers in Beaver Falls feeling confident they have exactly the coverage they need.

    Starting with basic liability insurance and adding features until you have a personalized plan to address your needs means understanding the differences between drivers, car styles, and vehicles in different stages of their operating life. Grimes Insurance Group, LLC works with Nationwide to construct policies that meet your needs with options like comprehensive coverage against damage while parked or even robbery.

    If you have questions about coverage options and policies, talk to one of our agents by calling us at (919) 847-7534. You can get answers, make a purchase over the phone, or schedule an in-person consultation meeting with Grimes Insurance Group, LLC in our office at 112 Wind Chime Ct.

  • Homeowners Insurance

    Modern home insurance coverage is not one-size-fits-all, but is instead based on the unique aspects of your home and living in Raleigh. Some physical components to consider when covering your home are detached additions, like pools and sheds.

    Another aspect of home insurance is covering the belongings on the inside, the ones that are most valuable or the most important to you. For expensive works of art, antiques or jewelry, there is our Valuables Plus® coverage. If the unforeseen does happen, you can be covered with our Brand New Belongings® program which aids in the repair or replacement of your covered belongings. Whether you're covering priceless memories or expensive boutique items, Grimes Insurance Group, LLC and all our other local agents want to make sure you get the best coverage possible.

    The sheer number of coverage options and discounts can seem overwhelming, but not when you have Grimes Insurance Group, LLC to explain every step along the way. We're located at 112 Wind Chime Ct, but you can also call us at (919) 847-7534 to schedule an appointment or just ask questions.

  • Business Insurance

    If you need an insurance policy that will provide coverage to your small business, you aren't alone. That is why business owners across the country turn to Nationwide to help them with their insurance needs. Small business owners are unique individuals, so a one-size-fits-all policy may or may not provide the coverage you are looking for. Nationwide agents can educate you about our products and help you customize a well-suited insurance package for you and your business. With us at your service, there is no need to put up with policies that don't serve you any longer.

    Property and liability insurance can both be necessary to keep your business safe. Property insurance can protect your physical location from damages caused by natural disasters, theft, and other misfortunes, and liability protects you from lawsuits filed by injured customers or third parties [note: liability does not protect against employee injuries]. There is no need to purchase each of these policies separately since Nationwide offers business owners policies (BOPs) to many types of qualifying businesses. These policies provide all of the aforementioned coverage and more if you choose to add on to your package.

    In addition to the coverage mentioned above, Nationwide also offers cyber liability, crime, accounts receivable, and income loss coverage due to an interruption. If you are interested in our products, Grimes Insurance Group, LLC at Grimes Insurance Group, LLC in Raleigh can help you find the right one. Stop by your local Nationwide agency on 112 Wind Chime Ct, or call (919) 847-7534 to learn more.

    Nationwide offers small business resources to help you strengthen your business, such as financial calculators and information and articles on marketing and cash flow management. Learn more at the Business Solutions Center.
