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
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.
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.
Not only that, I recommended them to a friend with an auto service shop, and they ended up saving him a good chunk of money, too. It's too bad insurance isn't free, but this is about as good as it gets - especially to get such great coverage.
Thanks, Balcos, for being the best in car, home, and business insurance. I'll be getting health insurance from you as soon as I settle down a bit. You guys are awesome - quite possibly the best insurance agency in good 'ol Seattle, WA.
Pros: Friendly, knowledgeable, fast, smart, affordable, protected
Cons: can't quote everything online, but most.
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
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.
I felt like I was committing highway robbery. The prices they gave me for my home insurance and car insurance were outrageous. They gave me full coverage at a cheap price. Who knew that using a middle man would be so easy AND so inexpensive! This is the best choice I have made all year.
Pros: cheap, inexpensive, quality, best, friendly, easy, fast,
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.
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!
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.
Real people with
Real answers and
Thanks for keeping it real. Really.
Pros: great people, service, insurance
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
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
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.
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.
My previous agent hadn't really talked with me about business income insurance. I didn't realize how important it was until later, when I switched to Balcos. They drilled in the importance of having it. I still didn't think that much of it, but I got it anyhow. And good grief am I glad I did. In the summer, my building caught fire. It was horrible. Everything was burnt up. Luckily, they had given me more coverage, so everything pretty much was taken care of. And while they rebuilt, while everything was being replaced.... it took months. If I hadn't gotten the insurance to cover my business income losses, I probably would have gone BANKRUPT!!! It's scary to think that if I hadn't switched to Balcos, I would probably have gone out of business. Thank goodness for agents that pay attention! You saved my business!
Pros: everything. agents. location. coverage. premiums. nice & friendly. I also like to buy locally, which they are.
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!
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.
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!
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!
