Paul McGarrell Insurance Agency Incorporated
About Me

Rating 5.0

I moved to Salt Lake City, Utah when I was 16 from Tacoma, Washington. I moved to Sandy, UT in 1988 and have been here ever since.

I established my agency from scratch in January of 1995. Draper is a growing community that cares about supporting their own and I don’t think I could have picked a better place to open my agency. When I started in the insurance industry it was for survival. I had just been laid off from Mountain Fuel (now Questar) and I had no car (because I had a company truck), a house payment and a family to take care of. I had been searching for positions in the HVAC in the newspaper and not finding anything so what comes after H, I. There was an ad from my district manager that I answered and the rest is history. Now we are the 9th largest Farmers agency in the country. My agency's number one core values are honesty, excellence, accountability, respect, and teamwork. We strive to help each person that walks through our doors and make sure they have the best service possible. Along with Auto, Home, and Life insurance, we also provide Business Insurance and Financial Services to the Draper, UT area.

Being involved in the community is very important to me. I help support many local school programs, including Juan Diego Youth Soccer, Football, Lacrosse, Youth Football and St. John the Baptist Elementary. I also support Primary Children’s Hospital and the University of Utah Athletes – Crimson Club Sponsor.

When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my wife, Judy, my daughter, Chelsy, my son-in-law Joshua, and my two grandchildren, Jameson and Kennedy. I love attending my grandchildren’s extracurricular activities. My grandson plays football and baseball, while my granddaughter plays soccer and dance. I also enjoy water skiing, snow skiing, waterfowl hunting and going up to the Wasatch Mountain Range. The Draper, UT area is such a great community full of so many things to do. I am truly grateful to be able to provide insurance services and give back in any way possible.

We are at 254 East 12200 South, Ste 200, Draper, UT 84020 East of Draper Heights Shopping Center where Kohls, Michaels, Ross and In and Out Burger are across the street from the Draper Post Office (South).

Give me a call at (801) 553-1173 and I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have.

Ballard's Iceberg is one of the local and office favorites!

“The One and Only” Ballard’s Iceberg Drive-Inn opened its doors in June of 1960 by Allen and Alice Mae Ballard. Alice Mae was looking to open a business of her own when she was introduced to a man named Hap Vitale who had a business model and building design for a fast-food franchise. There was another location on 3900 South & 900 East owned by Lamar Sorenson. Mr. Vitale, apparently gave up on the franchise, and these were two separately owned and operated family businesses. Mr. Sorenson later sold. The business was built in front of the Ballard’s home, where it is still located to this day. Alice Mae and her husband Allen ran the business for years. Later joined by their son Don, who took over management of the business, and has since been a full-time hands-on owner who can be seen every day grilling up freshly made to order burgers and fries. Alice Mae was still working and helping out until her death in 2008 Making this the Original “One and Only” Ballard’s Iceberg Drive.

Paul moved to the Salt Lake Valley as a teenager and finished high school at Judge Memorial Catholic High School. He fell in love with the slopes and quickly took up snow skiing. Paul studied Political Science at the University of Utah. He obtained a position with Mountain Fuel and worked as a building maintenance manager until 1994. In January of 1995 became a proud owner of his Farmers® Insurance Agency and has been dedicated to serving the Utah Community from Logan to St. George and anywhere in between since that time. Paul finds great joy in working with his clients to make sure that they are fully covered. One of his mottos is that "We insure people not things!". His dedication and education have made him one of the best in the industry and a prominent businessman within the Draper and Sandy Communities. He loves being able to travel the country to speak with other Farmers Agents and aid them to be successful business owners and give the best service to their clients. In his free time Paul enjoys outdoor activities such as hunting, water and snow skiing rooting for the 49ers & Giants and cheering on the University of Utah football and basketball teams with his wife, daughter, son-in-law, and grandkids! He recently went to Disneyland for the first time with his family and was very excited to experience the happiest place on earth with his grandkids. Young at heart he is always in the mix of things and on the go.
We are very proud to be able to sponsor the Skaggs Catholic Center Schools' Garden's Green House along with other proud members of our Draper Community. This provides a number of different options for the schools on the Skaggs campus. They use the food in their lunch rooms, sell it at their events to raise money and get the kids into the garden to learn how to grow whole foods and see the benefits in their diets. If you drive by today you can see that they are preparing for another season of growing goods by preparing the soil and getting everything lined up for planting season!
One of the biggest passions I have in life is working towards making sure that my clients and their families have one of the most important policies in place. What is one of the most important policies you ask? That is Life insurance¹. Help protect your financial security, continuity of your business and the stability of your retirement by securing Life insurance¹. We may have a policy that can fit the need and want of each person. Call my office today at 801-553-1173 to schedule an appointment to review your coverage and discuss your options. PWS 761350

    Paul McGarrell has insured my homes for many decades. I appreciate the personal care and attention I have received in making decisions on insurance.

    I had a great experience working with Chelsy. She answered all of my questions and was very quick at responding. Being so responsive is one of the main reasons we decided to get auto insurance from Farmers. We really enjoy working with your team!

    Paul, Judy and Chelsy are the best that Farmers could have representing them. They never wait for their client to call them and say I have found better pricing or a better deal, they are always in touch and never hesitate to offer a better deal if possible. They are never more than a phone call away for immediate action to help out.

    Paul has been our Farmers agent for all of our insurance needs for many years and he has been an excellent resource to our family. We could not be more happy with the incredibly high level of service Paul has provided over those years, so much so that almost everyone in our extended family, parents, brothers and sisters all use Paul as well. At this point we consider him a trusted friend and advisor, have simply cannot imagine an insurance agent doing more for his clients than what Paul does.
