The beginnings of Finck & Perras date back to 1935 when G.A. Finck & Son Insurance Agency first opened its doors in Florence to sell home and auto insurance. In 1972 Gifford & Perras Agency opened in Easthampton and quickly became a regional leader in personal and commercial insurance. After years of working closely together, the two agencies decided to join forces in 2000 and became Finck & Perras Insurance Agency.
With 30 plus employees our goal has always been to be more than just an insurance agent. Our goal has been to be your trusted insurance partner. We provide insurance for over 10,000 customers. We have been providing personal insurance like home, auto, boat or motorcycle insurance to our customers for generations. There is a reason our customers stay with us and then recommend their family and friends to us. Our agency has been voted the Best Local Insurance Agency for nine years by the Valley Advocate and the Dailey Hampshire Gazette.
We are also a leader in proving insurance for businesses large and small in the Western Massachusetts. Whether it is a one man operation with no employees or a large nonprofit with hundreds, we have been providing the best customer services for our customers for over 80 years. With access to dozens of carriers we can provide our customers with competitive quotes for almost any type of business.
At Finck & Perras, we know that being a local insurance agency is about much more than selling insurance. We live and work in this community, know the people here and know how important it is to give back. We have a long history of supporting organizations and causes, both with financial contributions and through staff involvement. Over the years, we have supported dozens of organizations, including the Diabetes Foundation, Riverside Industries, Linked to Libraries, the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life and the Easthampton Chamber of Commerce.
Finck & Perras is dedicated to continuing our long history as one of the leading insurance agencies in the Pioneer Valley.
