Bashore Chooses American Insurance

Bashore Insurance Transfers Grange Policies to American Insurance 

Bashore Insurance Agency of Clarkston has announced that American Insurance of Lewiston and Moscow has been selected as service agents for Grange policyholders previously serviced by Bashore.  Effective December 1, 2014, Tony Bashore, owner of Bashore Insurance Agency, will focus entirely on his Crop Insurance business and is transferring his Grange Insurance Association policyholders to American Insurance, which is currently an experienced Grange representative and very familiar with the policies and service requirements of Grange.

Bashore said, “I have represented Grange for over 34 years and I can attest to the fact that they are one of the best companies in the marketplace. I also feel very confident that the Sullivans and their staff at American Insurance will provide excellent service to Grange policyholders.  My current phone number and office location at 828-th St in Clarkston will remain open to continue my Crop Insurance business activities.”

“We are honored”, said John Sullivan, President of American Insurance, “to be selected by Tony Bashore and the Grange to provide ongoing service for their common policyholders.  We appreciate their trust and confidence in us.  My entire staff is looking forward to working closely with Grange policyholders and provide the personal service they expect and deserve.”
