Local, Reliable Insurance for Businesses

What is now Adams Eaddy & Associates first opened on January 1, 1980, in a tiny two-room office in the Shandon neighborhood of Columbia, South Carolina, with founding shareholders Hal Adams, Karen Burns, and Bill Eaddy. The three-person firm was then known as Adams Burns and Eaddy. The firm has grown, acquired smaller firms, added clients, and moved several times, but has always remained within a few block of their original office in Shandon.

The firm focuses on serving businesses in Columbia and throughout the Southeast. While we offer a range of commercial and business insurance policies, we’re best known for construction insurance, commercial property insurance, employee benefits, and bond insurance. Since 2000, we’ve added an emphasis in the Life Insurance and Employee Benefits Department. We’ve thus allocated resources for life, disability, long-term care, health insurance, and retirement planning needs of our business and individual clients.

Through incredible growth and the support of companies throughout the Southeast, Adams Eaddy & Associates now employs more than 25 team members. New technology allows us to grow bigger and more efficient, yet old-fashioned courtesy helps us maintain the same neighborhood feel we have always had. We look forward in the years ahead to continue our commitment to reliable insurance products, insurance advice, and our service to the business community of the Southeast.

A Strong Partnership to Better Serve Clients

In 2006, the agency became a member of the Correll Insurance Group, the largest non-bank-owned independent agency in South Carolina, offering a range of competitive insurance products, for business owners or homeowners. The company has more than 200 skilled insurance team members across the Carolinas and Tennessee and provides the Adams Eaddy & Associates agency with access to more markets, which means better options and more competitive pricing for clients.

Unlike those big-name agencies, we don’t work for one insurance carrier with a one-size-fits-all solution. We instead get to know you personally to help you compare insurance rates and coverage choices. We are a Trusted Choice® independent agency, and represent most of the nation’s leading business, personal, and auto insurance companies. It’s easy to see why the Adams Eaddy & Associates team has earned the trust and respect of Columbia area businesses.

Local Agent. National Support.

Correll Insurance Group offers the best of both worlds—you get to use a local, independent agent who lives in your town and knows you personally, but this agent is backed by a strong, national firm that’s been serving the Carolinas for nearly 90 years. So you don’t have to choose between having a personal relationship with your agent and knowing your insurance has enough resources. You’ll get both with Correll.
