Drake Insurance began serving the Insurance needs of Central Pennsylvania in September of 1978, when Bill Drake purchased the Duncannon Insurance Agency. In 1985, the Duncannon Insurance Agency moved from Duncannon to nearby Dauphin, PA and was renamed Drake Insurance Agency. On January 1, 2003, Drake Insurance Agency became Drake Insurance, Inc.
Since that time, our office has grown from a “one-man” operation to three full-time agents. Our Staff has a combined experience of over 70 years in the Insurance industry. As an Independent Agency licensed with a number of sound Insurance Companies, we are ready to solve any or all of your insurance problems.
In July of 1999, we moved to our new location, just 2 Miles off of Route 22/322 on Route 225 North (Peters Mountain Road) in the Clarks Creek Commons Office Complex. Our regular hours are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday 8:00am to 5:00pm, Eastern Time, and Friday 8:00am to 3:00pm. Evening and weekend hours are available by appointment.

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.
