We will offer you the best policy we have available, for the coverage you need at a competitive price.

Stochaj Insurance Agency, Inc. our knowledgeable staff will help you buy the right amount of insurance while ensuring you’re comfortable with the actual protection being purchased and the cost of the insurance. We recognize that insurance is a rather complicated but necessary purchase for most people and we want to help those who want to be adequately protected.

The friendly personnel at E.J. Stochaj Insurance Agency look at insurance as a serious purchase that will protect your financial future and those things for which you have worked so hard. We realize and will try to explain to you the serious differences, positive and negative, between policies or contracts offered by various insurance companies. We will try to offer you the best policy we have available, for the coverage you need at a competitive price. Our companies are selected based on their ability to provide responsible claim service, financial stability and adequate products.
