Understanding your business needs is the first step in protecting your company from loss.

To make you “Safer with Shafer®”, we begin by developing a thorough understanding of your business and its vulnerabilities, and assembling insurance coverages and risk transfer methods designed to protect your company from loss.

Proper insurance coverage will ensure your company’s survival if disaster strikes or problems arise.

Your business can be threatened by things other than fire, accident and natural disaster.  We help you identify those hidden risks and work with you to develop a unique risk management plan to provide your business with the protection it needs.

Shafer Insurance® has been helping our customers obtain the security they need for 50 years, and we are proud to have long term relationships with many of East Tennessee’s premier companies.

Our customer list consists of smaller sized, family owned businesses as well as large companies with thousands of employees.  We write for diverse types of businesses including manufacturing, construction, restaurants, heavy industry, churches, retail and more.  No matter your company size or specialty, we can help!

The evolution of our society requires that commercial insurance offer protection beyond the basic coverages traditionally purchased to protect assets.  New technology and societal trends demand a review of exposures and coverages on a regular basis.

At Shafer Insurance®, our approach is to help you identify these exposures and advise you of insurance coverage that might be available to help you protect what you have worked so hard to build.
