Auburn Insurance is a local, family owned and operated insurance company. I am very happy I switched my insurance with them because they found me the best rates with more coverage for less than my previous company. I love that they work with you one-on-one and if you ever need them, they can find and provide you with information quickly. I would recommend Auburn Insurance to anyone.

This an awesome insurance company, and trust me I have been bouncing around for awhile, not to mention that I am a repeat customer, I found them thru using them for a relator, ask for Jay Shaw, he make it less stressful and fun too and he knows his stuff. Everyone that works there goes above and beyond to help you out and makes you feel like your not just a number. I love them awesome to be around. don't look any farther ask for Justin Shaw he will hook you up... I like to say 1 stop shop, find a place to live and they will even get you homeowners too, love that.
