About Us

Bruner Insurance Agency was founded in Connellsville in 1975 by Dennis L. Bruner with one agent and one secretary. The agency was founded with the idea of providing customers with exceptional service at the lowest possible prices. As a result of the agency’s growth, David Bruner joined the agency in 1994 and became the owner in 2009. Through the hard work of our employees and the loyalty of our customers, we have grown to approximately 6,000 customers with 12 employees and offices located in Connellsville, Perryopolis and Jones Mills, PA. Despite our growth, our goal of providing customers with the best possible service at the lowest possible price has not changed.

As an independent insurance agency, we have a strong partnership with Erie Insurance Group and several other insurance companies. This allows us to be your advocate and do the shopping for you. No matter what type of insurance you need, we have the right policy and price for you! We are especially proud to be the recipient of Erie’s Insurance Group’s highest award, the Quality Agent Award. We have also received Erie’s Giving Network Agency of the Year Award for our community involvement as well as the Erie’s Branch Elite Award.

What is an Independent Insurance Agent?

When you decide to buy a car, you wouldn’t purchase the first one you see. What if one day the automobile industry decided to make only one type of car, one make and one model. You wouldn’t have a choice!

The same situation holds true for insurance. You need insurance to drive a car, to purchase a house, to protect your family’s financial future and to run a small business. But if there was only one insurance company that offered only one type of insurance, car insurance, home insurance or businessowner policy — you wouldn’t have a choice. The only solution would be going to that one company.

With an independent insurance agent, you have choices. Independent agents are not tied to any one insurance company. One of the advantages of using an independent agent is that he or she works to satisfy your needs. You are using an expert for an important financial decision.

An independent agent has several companies that he or she can approach to get you the best coverage at the best price. And your independent agent will know the companies with the most efficient claims departments to recover your losses as quickly as possible.

When you buy insurance, whether it’s for your home, your car or your business, you want an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace, it’s up to you to make the final choice.
