About DJI Insurance
Every member of the DJI Team is proud to be a part of the insurance industry — a business that plays such a critical role in protecting our family, friends and neighbors.
It’s a business with a rich history that dates back a quarter-of-a-century to pre-colonial America where merchants sailing from England sought financial guarantees for their cargo as they set out on journeys from which many never returned. Today, the insurance industry has evolved to include home, auto, commercial, and life insurance. Stop into one of our office's for a hot cup of “joe,” and give us the opportunity to provide you with the coverage you need! Once you become a customer, you’ll find it hard to leave.
We have one of the highest retention rates in the industry and we’re proud of it!
We offer competitive pricing (Our agents work hard to get you every available discount!), flexible payment options to meet your budget and a friendly and knowledgeable staff.
We are people just like you. We buy insurance too. We ride motorcycles, we have trailers, ATVs and snowmobiles, we own houses and drive cars.
We know what is best and what it should cost.
