Testimonials

Customer for 30 years...

We have been customers of Barr's Insurance for about 30 years, maybe more...we appreciate the personal attention we get when we have to file a claim, or when they take the time to check with all the insurances to guarantee we get the best price and coverage we need, for both Auto and Home. The people that work there have always been pleasant and seem to be genuinely interested in our needs.

Caring and Concerned about our needs...

We have been with Barr’s Insurance for many years. We have always found them to be very caring and concerned with our needs. Their team works hard to find us the best plans at reasonable costs. This includes our healthcare, property, and bonding insurance needs.   When we have had questions or problems, they have always taken the time to find a solution that is fair and reasonable.   We would recommend Barr’s Insurance to any consumer or business that is looking for an insurance carrier that really does care about your company!

Barr's has made it easy..

My experience thus far dealing with Barrs Insurance has been great.

Everyone I have dealt with has been able to answer all of my questions and has been very nice in doing so.  Barr's has made it easy consolidating all of my policies into one bill with the capability of electronic auto payment.

An Agency I Can Trust...

Barr's Insurance has always been an agency I can trust. Their customer service is excellent. I wouldn’t recommend them to a client if I haven’t used them personally.

Matt Kossick – Great guy both in business and family. Thank you Matt for taking care of our business and insurance needs. Great Personality.

Very detailed and knowledgeable employees...

Matt did a great job on my policy, my personal and commercial auto limits were very low with my previous carrier and Matt stepped up, educated me on proper limits and gave it to me for the same price I was paying with Erie Insurance. Matt is very detailed and knowledgeable and I’m glad he’s my agent.

Competitive rates and great service...

I have been with Barr's Insurance for quite a number of years. I have always been impressed with the service I receive when I call with an issue. They are always polite and extremely helpful. I recently considered changing to a different company, but decided against it due to Barr's competitive rates and great service.

Barr's Insurance employees go the extra miles...

For the last ump-teen to 20 years, I have relied upon Chris Sobina from Barr's Insurance to administer our group insurance for our Seneca employees and for our Ft. Mohave, AZ employees. Why would I rely on Chris? Well, it is because he is a good man and he goes the extra 1000 miles to research informational requests on all types of insurance issues. He is always prompt and accurate. Speaking for myself, I would now call him a good friend and that takes a lot of doing everything right and doing nothing wrong. To further this point, I started to purchase my business property and liability insurance from Chris for the last 3 or 4 years. Fortunately, we have not had an insurance claim for many years but, on the downside I haven't had a chance to test the insurance policies to see if they will pay for anything. All kidding aside, I can't give all the credit to Chris Sobina; I have to give a lot of credit to every employee at Barr's. They are all great people to work with.

The best to work with...

I just want to say "Thanks" for everything you have done for myself and for Morgan. You have really helped us out and you are great to work with. You stayed late to help Morgan get her first car and insurance. Again, you are the best to work with and we do appreciate everything you have done with us.

Small town company with big city knowledge...

Through various places of employment, I have had the pleasure of having Barr’s Insurance as my company insurance carrier. In my opinion, there is none that is finer than Barr’s Insurance and their employees. The agents and customer service support staff have all been exemplary, and over time, folks I am honored to call friend. They are indeed a small town company with big city knowledge. There is no company I have found who will work harder for you or find a way to satisfy all of your business and personal insurance requirements. Insurance renewal is often a dreaded time of year, but not when you are working with a company as friendly and professional as Barr’s Insurance.

They treat us as a family and has saved us beaucoup bucks...

My wife and I have used Barr’s Insurance exclusively for our insurance needs for many years. We could not be any more satisfied or better protected! The people at Barr’s are consistently friendly, efficient, professional and available. They treat us as family! Chris Sobina is our personal agent and has saved us beaucoup bucks with his constant updates on our insurance needs.

For about 7 years, I served as the treasurer of the Venango County Humane Society. Insurance coverage and activities were a part of my duties. I could not count the number of occasions that Barr’s guided that organization through complicated situations with a kind and conscientious eye to providing for our insurance needs in the least expensive manner. They have, indeed, been a friend to the animals!

I saved over $300 a year on Insurance costs...

I was very impressed by the customer service I received at Barr’s Insurance. Kerri was very thorough in explaining the different insurance options available. She also answered all my questions and concerns in a very timely, friendly, and professional manner. By switching to Barr’s I also saved over $300.00 a year on insurance costs.

Barr's Insurance goes above and beyond...

We were unhappy with our current insurance company and contacted Rod at Barr’s during 2012 to try to switch mid-term.  Rod worked very hard for us and was able to get quotes for our business policies, but at the time it would have cost more in cancellation fees so we decided not to move at the time.  We contacted him again at the end of 2013 and once again he went above and beyond and was able to secure us coverage at a substantial savings from what we were currently paying.  Everyone that we have dealt with at Barr’s has been great.  The customer service is excellent and I would definitely recommend them to anyone for personal and or business coverage.

We know that we can trust our agent, Rod Fee, to give us the right level of coverage at the right price. Not only at renewal time, but anytime throughout the year, Barr’s Insurance is readily available to answer any questions and to quickly provide support to us.

Barr’s Insurance has been handling the insurance needs of Marc Maslov, MD – Ear, Nose & Throat Associates of Northwestern PA for many years – including our Medical Coverage, Dental Coverage, Commercial Package, Workers’ Compensation and Employee Practices Liability. During that time, they’ve always had our best interest in mind and continue to “shop around” to find the best coverage at the best premiums. One of the most important features a company has to offer is customer service and community support … Barr’s customer service and community support is SUPERIOR! I highly recommend Barr’s Insurance for all your business and personal needs.
