  • Auto Insurance

    Understanding your insurance coverage should never involve having to learn a new language. That's why Nichelle Marie Shanks and McGriff Insurance Service 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 Kingsport.

    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 (800) 821-1284 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 433 E Center St.

  • Business Insurance

    The business you own is something you wake up thinking about, and the issues of the day linger in your mind way past closing time. Whether your business is properly insured may be one of those issues, and if so, we'd like to help. Nationwide Insurance: McGriff Insurance Service works with Nationwide to offer you insurance coverage to put your mind at ease. There are many different options, and we can combine those that are the most appropriate for your specific kind of business so that you will be covered for potential problems that are of the most concern to you.

    A business owner's policy, also known as a BOP, might be the perfect solution for coverage. If you have fewer than 100 employees and less than $5 million in annual sales plus property or equipment you want to protect, a BOP is worth exploring. To begin with, you'll be covered for property damage and general liability. It might be wise to add crime insurance to protect your business against fraud or theft, and equipment breakdown insurance which covers mechanical and electrical equipment as well as your computers. Speaking of computers, you might also want to add cyber liability insurance, which is great to have if someone hacks your computers and your electronic data is compromised.

    We know how hard you work to keep your customers happy and your company running on an even keel. When you're ready to talk about insurance protection, just give Nichelle Marie Shanks a call at (800) 821-1284, or stop by our 433 E Center St office in Kingsport. Having comprehensive coverage for your business will mean one less thing you have to think about when you wake up in the morning.

    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.
