  • Homeowners Insurance
    Homeowners insurance is a crucial part of owning and protecting a home. That's why the Cothran Insurance has worked so diligently to understand the insurance priorities of 24521 homeowners and their residential properties. In fact, the exact location of your home may mean your home's risk profile is slightly different from that of your Amherst neighbors' right down the street. No matter the specifics, Nationwide has coverage that's right for your Amherst home, and our agents can help further personalize your homeowner's policy.

    How so? Beyond the location, the property itself often has very different kinds of assets that can be protected through home insurance coverage. The structure and dwelling coverage are the backbone of most policies, but Cothran Insurance offers plenty of additional coverage options through Nationwide. These options cover things like a detached garage or other buildings, contents and valuables, or even a number of exclusive coverage programs like Better Roof Replacement®. Plus, if the time ever comes when one or more of our homeowners need to return a home to its former glory, the Nationwide On Your Side® Claims Service offers extra peace of mind.

    Our office is located at 165 S Main St. But our home insurance expertise extends throughout the greater Amherst area. Call the Cothran Insurance at (434) 946-7181 to get our take on the best way to protect against potential homeowner damages.

  • Life Insurance

We are here to help provide you and your loved ones with friendly and professional assistance in protecting the items and people you cherish the most.

There is some industry language you may not be familiar with that can make it challenging for you to understand policy options. We also offer different levels of coverage with varying death benefits and payment options.

    Your policy is only as good as your insurer’s reputation, experience and coverage options. To learn more about our products and how they can benefit you, call (434) 946-7181 to speak with one of our team members, or stop by 165 S Main St,Amherst,VA,24521 to discuss your insurance needs in our office.

  • Business Insurance
    As a business owner, you make scores of decisions every day. Some of those have to do with the insurance you carry. Do you have enough? Have you added more employees or purchased new equipment? Are you covered for computer attacks? In other words, have there been changes that indicate a review is in order? At Cothran Insurance, we have answers for those questions and many more. Because we work with Nationwide, we can provide you with a wealth of insurance solutions customized specifically to the type of company you own.

    We believe that the insurance you purchase should fit your business like a glove. The basics include property and liability insurance, but there are many other kinds of protection, and what you need depends on what you own. It's a good idea to take stock, listing assets such as buildings, vehicles, office and manufacturing equipment, inventory kept on the premises, fencing, landscaping, signage – even your satellite dish. This is the kind of information our insurance specialists will use help you design the coverage you need.

    At Cothran Insurance, we know that most of your waking hours are consumed by your business: how to run it, how to build it, and how to protect it. When it comes to concerns about insurance coverage, we can help make sense of a subject that sometimes seems overly complex. All you have to do is call Wesley Cothran at (434) 946-7181, or stop by our Amherst office on 165 S Main St. You'll get prompt answers to the questions you have about protecting your business and, better yet, solutions to put your mind at ease.

    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.

William L. Cothran Jr., started the agency in 1981 from scratch. His initial office was located on the first floor of the Regional Office for Nationwide located at 800 Graves Mill Rd Lynchburg, Va. The first policy he wrote, and thus the first policy on the books, was his own. He worked diligently day and night to be able to provide for his family, sometimes having to go and pick up premiums from customers after dinner or over the weekend just to retain customers. He eventually grew the agency to the point that he could afford an associate agent. In 1983 he recruited his wife, Sharon Cothran. He eventually moved out of the regional office and shared space with another Nationwide agent located in a strip mall on Timberlake Rd in Lynchburg, Va. His agency expanded rapidly, eventually requiring that he move out to a larger more permanent space on his own located at 423 Laxton Rd Lynchburg, Va 24502 where his principal office has remained since 1991.
The current owner Wes Cothran has earned several designations by expanding his knowledge that he attained by the tutelage and benefit of his father's 32 year experience. He has been recognized as one of Nationwide's top commercial insurance producers. As his current client base has an ever expanding need, he is currently licensed in 23 states plus the District of Columbia. With the help of his knowledgeable staff, he aspires to continue to provide the highest level of customer service.
