Why Waugh Insurance

familytrunk_420x315Over 50 years ago, A.L. “Pick” Waugh retired from selling coal from his one truck and joined Talbott Insurance as an agent. Talbott-Waugh Insurance was born. Pick proved he could sell insurance as well as coal, and the agency continued to prosper. In 1976, he purchased the balance of the agency from Robert “Bob” Talbott and changed the name to Waugh Insurance Agency, Inc. In 1977, Pick’s son, Dan, became a new agent and began working with his father.

Waugh Insurance Agency has seen many changes over the years. Most recently the office has moved from its previous location at 124 South Pennsylvania Avenue to a newly remodeled office at 340 South Pennsylvania Avenue. The move was necessary to better serve customers and obtain more space for employees and equipment.

Pick is retired now but still checks on the running of the agency. In the beginning, most policies were rated and issued “in-office.” Computerization and the internet have changed all that. One thing that hasn’t changed is our commitment to service our customers. Insure Today, Be Sure Tomorrow. We mean it.
