    Most states require the purchase of liability coverage. This coverage protects you when you become legally liable for damage to another auto or someone else's injuries from a car accident.

  • Business Insurance
    Hamby Fotheringham Agency has extensive local knowledge of the various industries operating in Hudson and 28638, earned through past experience working with individual companies that call Hudson home. The professional liability needs of a doctor, lawyer, or real estate agent are much different than, say, the commercial property insurance needs of a wholesaler/distributor. And with our own brick-and-mortar location, we understand how important location is to commercial insurance - even to those businesses which lease their operating space.

    These diverse risk management needs also explain why we help so many of our commercial clients with a business owner's policy from Nationwide. With this type of policy, Hamby Fotheringham Agency can combine different coverages into a single policy customized for your company's goals and responsibilities. But no matter your business insurance needs, know that Hamby Fotheringham Agency can help you find coverage that makes sense for your Hudson company.

    Don't wait any longer to protect what you've worked so hard to build. Let Hamby Fotheringham Agency make sure your customers, employees, and business are covered. Give us a call at (828) 728-3741 to discuss how we can better manage your company's risk and set up a payment schedule that fits with your weekly, monthly, and annual business expenditures.

    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.

My Agency was started from scratch in the spring of 1986. I had no files, no customers, only an education from Appalachian State University and a work ethic I garnered from my parents. I worked for two years out of the Nationwide district claims and sales office on highway 70 SW, until I moved to the Village Corner shopping to open my first private office in the summer of 1988. At that time, I had only one employee and about 500 files. Today I have three locations and ten employees, all focused on my customers. Over the years, as with all companies, Nationwide's prices have fluctuated. But our claims service and commitment to our policyholders has never waivered. In 1990 Nationwide became the number one carrier of property and casuality products (auto, homeowners, and commercial) and through hard work and a focus on what really matters in our busines, Nationwide maintains that number one position to this day! Good fortune has blessed me all my life and in the fall of 2000 Nationwide approached me about partnering with three of my fellow Nationwide agents about taking over a retiring agent's book in Hudson, N.C., which is now called Landis Insurance Group. I guess at the end of the day, what makes my Agency special is my commitment to the "On Your Side" slogan that has helped make Nationwide the leading carrier in N.C. and the simple understanding of how important my customers are to me and to Nationwide. I have not and will not "forget where I came from" and I will always remember my customers come first!
