Amherst Insurance Provides Registry Running Services

Welcome to Amherst Insurance

Amherst Insurance Agency Inc. began as The Nathan Agencies in 1969 when Ron Nathan founded the company. Ron moved The Nathan Agencies to its current location in 1978 and the following year purchased Amherst Insurance, expanding the types of insurance we carry. In December 2012, current owners Anna Holhut and Glenn Allan purchased Amherst Insurance Agency from Ron. Since then, Amherst Insurance has steadily grown into one of the leading full-service insurance agencies in Western Massachusetts.

At Amherst Insurance, we pride ourselves on treating all of our clients with respect, competence and accountability.

We Are An Independent Insurance Agency

We do not work for an insurance company; we work for you. We work on your side when you have a loss and follow through to see that you get fair, prompt payment.

We represent a carefully selected group of financially sound, reputable insurance companies, and we place your policy with the company offering the best coverage at a competitive price.

Our professional staff analyzes your insurance requirements first from the viewpoint of RISK MANAGEMENT. By risk elimination, risk reduction, risk transfer or risk assumption the cost of your package of insurance may be considerably reduced.

Our Aims…
To reduce your insurance cost and gaps in coverage.
