Farmers Insurance Agent in Reading, PA

Brenda Bechtel Insurance Agency LLC
About Me

Rating 4.8

As lifelong residents of Berks County, we are focused on customer service and finding the gaps in their current insurance policies to help prevent future hardships --whether that's auto, home, renters, business insurance, or life insurance.

We realize that price is important, but it is only part of why customers chose our agency. We do not use the traditional "pressure to buy" sales approach. Instead, we strive to educate each person so they can make better decisions for their own situation and budget. Finding those "gaps" in an existing insurance policy is our specialty. Farmers have trained us carefully to look for anything that might cause a financial loss in the future.

Do we ask a lot of questions? Yes. The more we know about your lifestyle and current insurance needs, the better we are able to recommend the proper coverage. Insurance is too important to rush through or fit into a small time slot. Our hours are flexible to accommodate our client's free time.

Whether you are buying a home for the first time, shopping for a new car, starting up a new business, or protecting your loved ones with life insurance, we will walk you through the process and point out your options.

Our family has been in business for over 90 years with Rentschler's Auto Center, so we understand how to treat our customers with respect and appreciation. This is our 5th Year with Farmers and has enjoyed the experience of helping people make good choices protecting their assets and their loved ones.

As an owner of a family business, I understand how important it is to protect those assets that one's family has earned over the years.
My family has lived and owned businesses for nearly 100 years in Reading. As a lifelong resident and a member of the community for over 60 years, we take pride in helping the community.
Our three children were raised and educated in the Governor Mifflin School District.

Currently, I also serve as the Music Director at our local church.

I was a substitute teacher in the Gov Mifflin school district for about 10 years as well as the Wyomissing Area School District.

I spent about 15 years with the Governor Mifflin Ambulance Assoc. and Southern Berks Paramedics as an EMT Paramedic. I was also an officer of both organizations. This was all volunteer work.

Give me a call at (484) 755-5966 and I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have.

No two companies are exactly alike. That’s why you can build a customized Farmers business insurance policy with options that provide coverage for your specific needs and challenges. Call me today to learn more.

As a restaurant owner, you may want to consider Employment Practices Liability Insurance (or EPLI for short). Farmers can provide coverage within 8 hours of a claim. This can put you at an advantage as opposed to having to wait three days. We understand that you're busy and that especially in these times, time is money. If you're a restaurant owner, we're ready to address your Business Insurance needs!
