About Us

DiSalvatore Insurance Agency, Inc. is a family owned and operated independent insurance agency. Our agency has served Ashtabula County and it’s surrounding area (including PA) since 1974. Founder and lifelong resident of Ashtabula, Sam DiSalvatore, started the agency from a small office in his home. In 1979 Sam moved his office to Main Ave and operated there for 8 years. Partnered with Erie Insurance, as his lead insurance carrier, the business evolved and had grown out of that office space.

In 1987 our current office location was constructed to better serve our clients and community. In 1996 the agency was purchased by Sam’s son and daughter team Mark DiSalvatore and Marian Miklacic. Mark and Marian proudly own and operate the family business and continue to grow by respectfully serving it’s community.

In 2008, the duo was recognized for excellence with the most prestigious award given by Erie Insurance, the F.W. Hirt Quality Agency 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, 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, you want an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace, because it's up to you to make the final choice.
