Rockford, IL, January 25, 2012 – Insurance King celebrates 10 years in business. Insurance King is a low cost car insurance leader in IL that was established in 2002.
“With over 40,000 cars insured and millions of dollars in claims paid in the Rockford, IL area, Insurance King has had a pretty good first 10 years,” said Dan Block co-founder of Insurance King.
Insurance King started in 2002, in Loves Park IL, and has grown to 3 locations in Rockford, IL, with the main office at 123 N. Alpine Rd. Rockford, IL 61107, 815-639-0149, serving the West side of Rockford at 3814 Auburn St. Rockford, IL 61103 815-968-(KING)5464, conveniently located next to the DMV, IL Secretary of State License facility, and serving the Midtown district at 319 7th St. Rockford IL 61104 815-316-9522. The office hours are Monday through Friday 9am-5pm at the Auburn and 7th St locations and the main office on Alpine Rd. is 9am-5:30pm Monday through Friday and Saturday 12pm-4pm. Insurance King is also open most holidays simply call for holiday hours.
Co-founder Dan Block says;” the motivation for Insurance King came from personal experiences with finding low cost auto insurance. Dan was involved in an auto accident at the age of 18 which led to him being dropped from his parents policy and forcing him to find his own insurance. Dan was driving a brand new 1995 Ford Mustang GT, and the cheapest policy he found was $480 per month, which was $50 more than the actual payment for his car. In 2000, Dan became a licensed Insurance Agent and worked for a competing Insurance Agency and learned of much lower rates being offered through many different insurance carriers.
Dan excelled selling hundreds of auto insurance policies per month when he ran into Scot Nyman, who had just started his own insurance agency. Dan had lunch with Scot and decided to leave where he was and helped create Insurance King, which was originally Nyman Advisors. Dan became very passionate in helping people save on their car insurance and helping people understand what a SR-22 was, that he became a SR-22 expert. Dan began driving to Chicago every Wednesday helping 20 or more get their licenses re-instated the same day with SR-22 filings. The State of IL recognized that Dan was the only Agent doing this and invited Dan to be a part of a mandatory insurance task force. With the help of Dan, the State put measures in place to help prevent fraudulent SR-22 filings and filing SR-22’s electronically. It took 3 years for the task force to get the SR-22’s filed electronically so IL citizens are now able to report their SR-22’s within 24-48 hrs.”
In 2003, Dan Block purchased the Agency from Scot Nyman, and began airing TV and Radio commercials, which have had a cult following. People actually call the Agency to let them know they love certain commercials that they saw or heard. This led Dan to run even more commercials, such as creating a jingle and even purchasing a Lion Mascot costume that dances outside of the locations and appears at social events and in TV commercials.
Today, Insurance King is expanding all over the State of IL and looking to grow into Indiana and Wisconsin. Insurance King is also developing an online rater for people to purchase insurance right from the comfort of their own homes.
