We are pleased to announce that we are now a licensed partner with Pekin Insurance.
Pekin, founded on April 1, 1921, has grown from the days of the Tazewell County Courthouse, where their first office was held - consisting of one part-time secretary, 187 policies in force, and the six-month premium of $5 for glass, fire, lightning, windstorm, full-coverage collision, property damage, and bodily injury, and where all cars regardless of age, type, or value, were charged the same premium. They are now located on a 30-acre property on Court Street in Pekin, Illinois. 7 service offices are also located in their six-state marketing area to provide maximum and efficient claim service that goes Beyond the expected® for insureds and agents in those respective areas.
