About Us

Forrest Insurance Agency is a full-service insurance agency first established by William L. Forrest to serve the greater Springfield area in 1963. Today, his sons, Larry and Michael Forrest, continue the tradition of integrity and personal service begun by their father.

Forrest Insurance is large enough to attract the most respected and competitive insurance companies in Massachusetts while still being small enough to know our customers by name. We offer affordable auto, home and business insurance quotes to individuals and families living in East Longmeadow, Longmeadow, and the Greater Springfield area.

Call or email us today, to see why generations of customers trust the dedicated team at Forrest Insurance with their personal and business insurance needs.
