The Sechler Way

90 years of trusted service!

Sechler Insurance Group was founded in 1931 by Scott and Jason’s grandfather, Earl Sechler. Earl operated the family dairy farm and also sold insurance. In 1967, Eugene, Scott and Jason’s father, took over the family business. He expanded the business by opening their current Rockwood location in 1979. Eugene retired in 2007 after 41 years serving the community. Scott joined the agency in 1991 and opened a second location in Somerset. Jason began working for the agency in 2000. Both Scott and Jason were recognized by Nationwide Insurance as being the oldest family owned agency in the company which is now 90 years in service.

What is an Independent Insurance Agent?

When you decide to buy a car, you wouldn’t purchase the first one you see. What if one day the automobile industry decided to make only one type of car, one make and one model. You wouldn’t have a choice!

The same situation holds true for insurance. You need insurance to drive a car, to purchase a house, to protect your family’s financial future and to run a small business. But if there was only one insurance company that offered only one type of insurance, you wouldn’t have a choice. The only solution would be going to that one company.

With an independent insurance agent, you have choices. Independent agents are not tied to any one insurance company. One of the advantages of using an independent agent is that he or she works to satisfy your needs. You are using an expert for an important financial decision.
An independent agent has several companies that he or she can approach to get you the best coverage at the best price. And your independent agent will know the companies with the most efficient claims departments to recover your losses as quickly as possible.

When you buy insurance, you want an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace, because it’s up to you to make the final choice.
