The Copeland Insurance Group

A Full Service Independent Insurance Agency

The Copeland Insurance Group is an independent insurance agency that has been serving people since 1966. Mel Copeland started his insurance career in 1962 and began Copeland Insurance Group just 4 years later. In the over 50 years since Mel started Copeland Insurance Group our services have expanded to include medical, life, commercial, home and auto insurance.

Mel is committed to a personal, service-driven approach and has nurtured this tradition through his staff of like-minded professionals. We are dedicated to providing our customers with the best possible insurance protection at fair and reasonable prices. With that goal in mind we work with stable, financially sound, and nationally recognized insurance carriers that have proven their performance over the years.

You can be sure that we will place your insurance with the company that best meets your coverage and pricing needs. By understanding your goals, needs, and dreams we choose the products that offer the most for you. We don’t make you fit the policy…we make the policy fit you. The goal of each Copeland Insurance staff member is to serve our clientele with sincerity, competency, and integrity.

Our business is done in a personal manner – the phones are always answered by our staff during business hours.
