About Us - Chaney Insurance Agency - Since 1923

About Us

Chaney Insurance Agency is a local West Virginia independent agency. The agency was formed in Montgomery in 1923. Greg Chaney has owned and operated the agency since 2008. In 2000, the agency moved from Front Street to 418 Fourth Avenue, its current location, following a major fire that destroyed the building.

Today, Chaney Insurance Agency offers not one, but multiple carriers in personal lines of: auto(5), home(6), flood(3) and recreational vehicles(3) because we work to get the customer the best coverage for their dollar. On the business/commercial side of insurance, we are also a multiple line carrier with coverage for: retail stores, buildings, construction, trucking, and rental apartments or houses. If you have a similar risk that standard carriers won't insure such as vacant or aged buildings, tanning beds, mining operations, or special events, we have brokers that underwrite these risks as well. Call and talk to an insurance professional at 833-786-8387 or 304-442-2417.
