  • Auto Insurance

    Understanding your insurance coverage should never involve having to learn a new language. That's why Mark W Goodnow and W B Goodnow Agency Inc. 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 Winthrop.

    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 (315) 389-5145 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 1 Cemetery St.

  • Life Insurance

Life is unpredictable but it is within your power to minimize or even eliminate the financial impact of unexpected life events.

    We at W B Goodnow Agency Inc. are here to help people like you in the Winthrop area. We are here to answer your questions and make life insurance understandable. We will explain term versus permanent insurance and we will outline the types of life insurance that may be best for you.

    You should factor in your current age, income and debts and the likely financial impact of lost income. You should also consider final expenses as well as future educational needs for your children and even for yourself or your spouse. If you are a one-income household, you should be sure to purchase a policy that will cover that income in its entirety if lost.

  • Business Insurance

    Finding peace of mind as a small business owner means being prepared for challenges your company might face as it grows. A good way to do that is by having a broad risk management plan and updating it after each new growth phase adds to the complexity of your operations. The Nationwide Insurance: W B Goodnow Agency Inc. works with Nationwide to make this easier by providing the kind of robust and customizable insurance that has already serviced over 500,000 small businesses.

    To get the process started, Mark W Goodnow may recommend purchasing a business owner's policy. This provides basic coverage along a variety of lines and represents the closest thing that business insurance has to a comprehensive policy. From there, agents conduct an On Your Side® Review to find specific areas where your company could use a little more coverage, and these vary quite a bit from business to business. Examples include insurance on your receivables, on equipment and other specific high-value assets, product liability, and basic property insurances.

    Finding the right coverage for a small business in Winthrop is a process, but it is a process that Mark W Goodnow has the experience to guide you through. That way, you have the security you need to take advantage of every new business opportunity. To get things started, call (315) 389-5145 for a phone consultation or to set an appointment for a meeting at our offices located on 1 Cemetery St.

    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.

The W B Goodnow Agency Inc. also offers products in NY. Please call for information on products in those states.
