Auto, Home, Renters Insurance

Michigan City, Valparaiso, La Porte, Indiana

Welcome to General Insurance Services.

We are an independent insurance agency and brokerage primarily serving Northwest Indiana.

General Insurance Services represents many of the best and largest auto and home insurance carriers. We offer many choices, options, and pricing plans for you to choose from. Our agents are professionals who live and serve in the communities that they work in. Let our agents get you a customized auto and home insurance quote, as well as renters insurance and business insurance in Michigan City, Valparaiso, La Porte, and surrounding areas in Northwest Indiana.

Unlike company-employed agents, independent insurance agents represent more than one insurance company, so we can offer clients a wider choice of insurance options to satisfy individual needs. Unlike the direct writers, who respond from telemarketing centers and offshore locations, independent agents are down the street, in your community, familiar with you and your risks. You know where to find them and can sit down and talk with them. Call or email one of our agents today to review your auto and home insurance!
