About Us

Hurst-Weiss Insurance has been serving the insurance needs of businesses and families in Pittsburgh & Western Pennsylvania since 1915. One of the keys to our success is that we act as an advisor to our clients not merely a salesperson. We will discuss options, costs and exposures without high-pressure sales tactics. Please take advantage of our knowledge and ability to explain insurance coverages in easy to understand terms.

Our Website

Our website is designed to help educate individuals and businesses on the sometimes confusing aspects of home, auto, business, health & life insurance and offers you the ability to work directly with an agent or on your own. If you are looking for an insurance agency that will work with you as a consultant and help you understand the many factors that need to be considered when designing an insurance program, we can help you. Remember that making a decision on insurance coverage based solely on price can result in costing you thousands of dollars when you have a claim. One of the most important benefits of having an independent insurance agent provide insurance coverage for you is that we are in the best position to fight for you when you have a claim.

Most carriers look at your payment history, credit utilization, collections and bankruptcies. If you pay your bills on time you will have a better score than someone who is always late. People who carry high credit card balances will also have a lower insurance credit score.
