Excellent Staff! 12/3/2010

I am extremely happy with the service I received at Balcos. I switched to balco's after getting ripped off by my internet insurance company. I would recommend it to anyone on the hunt for Seattle insurance, or anyone searching for renter insurance, or house insurance. I have had great service from my insurance agent and was treated like a real person not just as customer #347/ more

Cheap insurance and professional staff 9/21/2009

The folks at Balcos Insurance have really impressed me. I got my car insurance and home insurance through them and they were able to get me a great insurance premium. I am happy to be doing business with such a great insurance agency. They saved me money, got me better coverage, and were very friendly. I will be recommending them to others, definitely. Pros: Cheap insurance, car insurance, home insurance, good people Cons: No pet insurance more

Affordable business insurance / commercial insurance 8/20/2009

Balcos insurance is a good insurance agency. They take their business very seriously, and it shows in the quality of their work. They have some of the best business insurance agents I have ever worked with. They saved me money, worked quickly and in an easy-going manner, and were very pleasant to do business with. I have my business insurance, home insurance, car insurance, and commercial auto insurance (for my business' vans). I was impressed with their service and highly recommend them to others. Pros: affordable, friendly, fast quotes, reliable, great policies Cons: Just too bad they can't save me money on my daycare, too. more

Excellent Seattle insurance! 7/15/2009

Balcos insurance is great - saved me money and I ended up with better coverage. I bought auto insurance and homeowners insurance from them by quoting online first and then speaking with an agent. They got me an amazing deal - better than any other agents in Seattle, that's for sure. Plus, they upped my coverage. Pros: Friendly, knowledgeable, fast, smart, affordable, protected Cons: can't quote everything online, but most. more

Best business insurance 5/11/2009

Business insurance is important to me. Without it, I put my financial future at risk. Balcos insurance helped make sure that all my liabilities were covered so that if something happens, I won't be SOL. The did so well with my business insurance in both my Bellingham and Seattle business locations that I got my auto insurance and health insurance with them, too. Thanks for doing a great job, guys. Pros: Awesome staff and great prices more

Cheap insurance with the best agents on the West Coast. 4/14/2009

I am from Seattle so have always been a proponent of shopping locally, but with insurance I thought it was different somehow. Then I realized that I should support Seattle insurance agencies, too. And am I ever glad I did! Balcos Insurance is the best insurance place in all of Washington. Their agents are friendly, fast, and got me insurance at a price I could afford. Pros: cheap, inexpensive, quality, best, friendly, easy, fast, more

Balcos Insurance is great 3/20/2009

I was so happy when they told me they were going to be able to save me over $350 a year. They're so good to me. I figured I would have to lower my insurance limits or raise my deductibles or something to be able to cut my costs. Since I just had my hours reduced (I hope this economy recovers soon), I needed to shave a little off the top. But as it turns out, all I had to do was call these guys. Thank goodness for Balcos Insurance - hands down the best agency in Ballard, and probably Seattle. Keep up the good work, guys - thank you. Pros: Saved me $350 a year, Nice people, Fast, Easy to work with. more

Great insurance agency 3/6/2009

Balcos Insurance saved me tons of money - over $800 per year, just on my home and auto. I am so happy I made the switch! Plus, they increased my limits so that if something happens, I'm covered even better than I was before. Hurrah Balcos! more

Best Restaurant Insurance ever! 4/23/2008

I joined the Washington Restaurant Association and got hooked up with Balcos Insurance through their member services. I was SO glad I did! They ended up saving me a TON of money, and increased the amount of money I was covered for on the policies. I didn't think it was possible to get such good quality coverage at that price. With the offer of such a good deal, I decided to get quotes on the rest of my insurances, and ended up switching my home and auto insurance over to them, too. They saved me even MORE money with those. Unbelievable! I am thrilled with the service I got from them and will definitely recommend all my friends, whether they have businesses or not. Pros: Restaurant specialty insurance, home insurance, auto insurance, business insurance, nice staff, great prices more

Thank You 4/23/2008

You guys are just the best. Thanks for always being there when I need you (and when I don't!). I had such issues with my insurance company never being there when I needed them... seemed like I had to answer a hundred questions with my ""touch tone phone"" before I could ever talk to a human being. Thanks, Balcos Insurance, for being a whole agency full of humans. Pros: great people, service, insurance more

Helpful customer service staff 4/23/2008

I had a whole series of questions come up about my insurance that I needed answers to right away. I called my agent, but she was on vacation. My questions were answered by another agent quickly and they really knew their stuff. One question led to another, though, and I ended up having to call back three or four times with new questions that struck me later. Every time I called, I got someone who was very helpful and got the answer I needed fast! I was so impressed by the great teamwork and incredible service that I ended up telling all my friends about them. more

So fast! 4/23/2008

I was working with Jennifer L., and she was so quick! It's so nice to get service that is both complete and up to speed. I don't have time to mess around with the waiting game - it's just bad business. But she worked with my needs and sent everything through emails and faxes and we got my insurance taken care of quickly. Good to know I have an agent I can trust that will step up when I need her. Pros: quality, fast, efficient, nice, concerned, knowledgeable, service, price more

Other agencies should be jealous. 4/22/2008

If they all had Tina, their agencies would run smooth as butter. I can't believe how easy she made insurance for me. I'm not really the insurance type... it's just too technical for me to want to care about, even though I know it's important. It's flaky, I know, but it's true. I've always been that way. I found their website and called in for a quote. They gave me Tina. And I'm stoked they did. She was awesome, and explained things in a way I could understand (which is a feat in and of itself). She guided me through the slew of insurance stuff and took really good care of me (and thanks for saving me some cash, too!). Thanks Tina - you're the best! more

Saved Me Money!!! 4/22/2008

The agents at Balcos Insurance are great! I'd been with them for a little while on the recommendation of a friend, and after a year, they sent me a letter asking me to call them. Something about an annual review... I did, and it turned out that they were able to INCREASE my coverages and LOWER my premium. They saved me almost $800 per year!!! I couldn't believe it. Now I have an excuse to buy that new TV I've been wanting. Thanks, Balcos!!!! Pros: easy, fast, friendly, great service, inexpensive Cons: little weird to find their office the first time. Suuuuper easy after that. more

Saved My Business 4/22/2008

I own a restaurant, had coverage already for my business, property, and liability. I'm so happy that Balcos makes restaurants a priority. They really know their stuff. Pros: everything. agents. location. coverage. premiums. nice & friendly. I also like to buy locally, which they are. more

Protecting me from myself. 3/19/2008

It could have been really, really bad. Had Julie Johnson at Balcos not insisted that I add on additional coverage that she saw was necessary, I could have lost a lot more than I did. She pushed for me to add insurance on backup of drainage and sewer systems - I thought it was unneccessary... But because she talked me through it, and explained everything fully to me, reluctantly I did. And it's a dang good thing. I came back from vacation to a home that had practically blown away in the storm. A forest had practically blown through my windows and walls, and a lake of drainwater and sewage had collected in my living room. I was horrified. But she took such great care of me and made sure that not only was I covered for the damage, but that I was comfortable while all the ""details"" were being addressed. THANK YOU Julie at Balcos for being awesome and saving me from myself!!! If only I had a guardian angel like that for all my decisions in life! Pros: Wonderful Agents, Nice offices, Great Service, Awesome coverage, affordable insurance, satisfaction! Cons: none! more

Awesome Agency!!!!! 3/19/2008

Balcos is so good to me! I have always had a good experience any time I've gone in or called them. They are prompt, their answers make sense (even to an insurance ignoramus like me), and they have always been nicer than nice can be! A while back I had problems with theft at my business, and they took such good care of me - rather than feeling like I was being persecuted or did something wrong, my agent took care of me. Not only did she help me take care of the situation at hand, but she made sure to get me the coverage I need for the future. Thank you, Balcos Insurance!!!!!! Pros: Calm, Fast, Easy to find, Parking, Awesome Customer Service, Complete coverage, Affordable Cons: My face hurt from smiling too much. That Scottie has a real sense of humor! more
