Why are we so passionate about earthquake insurance?
QuakeQuotes founder, Claudia McClain, grew up in Southern California practicing monthly “duck and cover” earthquake drills. Later in life, she experienced firsthand the emotional and financial losses earthquakes can cause.
These experiences led Claudia to found McClain Insurance Services in Everett, Washington, in 1977. Since then, our mission has been simple and clear: to help clients re-establish their lives as quickly and as completely as possible after a loss.
Why do business with us? We’re real people who love protecting families in Everett, Seattle, and across the Pacific Northwest. We’re here to educate you about your insurance options and make sure you’re properly protected from all of life’s surprises – including the “Big One.” Protecting your family and your belongings is our priority.
In addition to earthquake insurance, we advise clients on all their personal insurance needs, including homeowners and renters insurance, auto insurance, and life insurance. We can also assist with insuring more unique family needs like electric bicycles, Airbnb and other vacation rental properties, and in-home businesses.
Most importantly, as independent insurance agents, we partner with the Pacific Northwest’s best insurance companies. This allows us to offer choices to every client.
