Best Insurance Company Award for Colonial Insurance Agency

The News of Orange County Readers’ Choice Awards is an annual award voted for by News of Orange County readers, giving them the opportunity to voice their support for their favorite businesses in Hillsborough across a range of categories. Colonial Insurance Agency offers customers a choice of policies from a variety of insurance companies for all your insurance needs — auto, home, life, disability, and business. Our employees are licensed professionals with strong customer and community ties.

As Scott Lanier, owner of Colonial Insurance Agency says, “Receiving this community award is a surprise and an honor. It means so much to us because it’s an acknowledgment of the hard work and commitment that we give to each and every one of our clients who trust Colonial with their home and business insurance needs.”


Independent Insurance Agents Working For Their Customers


Colonial Insurance Agency pride themselves on their long-standing reputation of offering independent insurance advice. Because they are an independent insurance agent and not captive to any one carrier, they are able to provide their clients with individualized, excellent service offering extremely competitive premiums and the ability to source different coverage options from a large number of major and niche carriers.

They also offer a complimentary annual risk and insurance coverage audit to both new and existing customers which allows them to provide the best advice on coverage options, often finding ways to lower their customer’s premiums with this strategy.  This precludes the need for clients to move to another agent or feel like they have to continuously shop around. The staff at Colonial Insurance Agency see themselves as partnering with their clients, advocating for them and assisting when they have a claim as well as being able to offer their clients a choice of coverage options. As an independent insurance agency based in Hillsborough NC, they work closely with the best carriers to suit each of their clients’ needs.
