Dalton And Trent Join Forces


August 10, 2017

Dalton Insurance and Trent & Associates have announced a merger of insurance offices this summer.

Trent & Associates has been serving Western North Carolina since 1927, and with the addition of the Dalton team joining theirs, the main emphasis they want the community to know is very little is changing. There are no plans now to merge the two locations, as the Rosman office will remain in downtown Rosman, and Trent's Brevard office will remain on Rosman Highway. All the staff is staying, as well as Jake Dalton.

Dalton said, "Jason and I have talked over the years, and we realize we duplicate many things in our offices, and if we merged, we could better serve our community. I just want folks to know that I'm still here and I have no plans on retiring from insurance."

"Jake and his team have done a phenomenal job in serving our community and the surrounding areas, so we are looking to change very little," said Trent. "Since we are perceived as a Nationwide Insurance office, folks don't realize that we write with many other carriers as well. We have mostly all the same insurance companies as Dalton Insurance, so folks that want to stay where they are can easily do so."

One client said, "I have insurance policies at both locations, so I think it's great they are coming together. They are both great agencies with professional and caring agents. Jason and Jake assured me that they'll now look at some better discounts for my policies since I am now under one agency."

"We recognize that when something like this happens, many folks have questions, so we wanted to do our best to let folks know about it." Trent said. "The biggest thing we want people to get is that very little is changing, and if nothing else, they will have more local agents working for them than ever before!

"We know that locals serving locals is very important in this community, and we'll continue that for decades to come!"
