If you own a vehicle in Pennsylvania, you must carry auto insurance that covers bodily injury and property damage, as well as uninsured and underinsured motorist protection. If you finance your vehicle, the lender will also require you to carry collision and comprehensive coverage to protect its interests. All these coverages, along with others such as tort, loss of income and medical, can get expensive, which is why it pays to shop around and find the best rates.
If you live in Perry, Dauphin or Cumberland County and are in the market for auto insurance, Reisinger Insurance Agency, Inc. can provide the best coverage and the most affordable rates in the area. We’re a family-owned-and-operated agency that opened for business in 1955 — you can count on us for superior vehicle insurance products backed by friendly, personalized service.

How Much Insurance Should I Buy?
Purchase enough insurance to protect your assets, property values, and protect your way of life.
Without auto insurance, you risk the responsibility for harm you may cause to people and property.
You will be financially responsible for the cost of repairing or replacing your car if it’s stolen or damaged.
Types of Insurers to Consider
There are several types of insurers one should be knowledgeable of while shopping for auto insurance. They include:
- Voluntary carrier: Carriers that insure drivers with good records — typically offering better rates.
- Involuntary carrier: Carriers that insure drivers with less than a perfect driving record — usually with higher rates.
No matter which carrier you choose, it’s crucial to check if they have good ratings from A.M. Best Company and J.D. Power.
