NEWINGTON - Just because its commercial is funny or endearing doesn’t mean an insurance company is going to provide you with the best possible policy to fit your needs and budget.

Connecticut Insurance Exchange has a long-standing reputation in the community to narrow down the options for clients and connect them with the perfect choice.

The agency represents over 30 different insurance companies and counting, all highly rated. Staff recently added another A+ rated company, Quincy Mutual, to its lineup.

“Many people don’t realize the insurance companies they see online or on TV can only give them a one-size-fits-all option,” said Melanie Tregoning, licensed agent and vice president of marketing at CT Insurance Exchange.

It would take someone hours in front of the computer, telephone in-hand, to research multiple insurance companies for rates and options that would be the equivalent of those that this veteran-owned, independent agency represents.

“Our agents can check with multiple companies within minutes to find the best coverage to fit each person’s need,” Tregoning explained. “Because these top-rated insurance companies don’t spend tons of money advertising, they pass along big savings directly to the policyholder. That truly makes Connecticut Insurance Exchange a one-stop superstore for insurance!”

The team at 112 Market Square is continuing to grow in its 42nd year. It recently welcomed Associate Account Executive Phil Knower to the commercial insurance department and administrative assistant Paige Trumbull.

People across the region trust CIE staff to find them reliable insurance and reasonable premiums in auto, commercial, property, home, health and life insurance. The agency also provides some lesser known options, including insurance for pets, travel and big events.

It’s wedding season, and CIE wedding insurance provides for unforeseen circumstances that arise on the big day.

From unavoidable cancellations to postponements, it’s covered.

In our ever-changing technology climate, small businesses and local professionals find peace of mind in cyber liability and identity theft policies as well.

Connecticut Insurance Exchange is open Monday to Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or by appointment. Call 860-666-5443 or visit, Facebook/CIELTD or find CIE on Instagram or Twitter at PayLessCT.
