Private Client Group

On or off the road we can insure your vehicles. Get everything protected—collector cars, motorcycles, motor homes, ATVs, snowmobiles and more.


Often overlooked, Umbrella is a critical component of an insurance portfolio. Having the right limit of liability will protect you against rising court awards.


Art, jewelry, wine, guns, golf equipment—a tailored policy will cover your treasures. We are here to help you protect the things you are passionate about.


Protecting your luxury yacht, sailboat, powerboat or boat of any size can be a complex undertaking. We’ll manage your risk while you enjoy your lifestyle.


We are able to help you with covering a range of property and liability risk. Know you are covered and take to the air with true peace of mind.

Ever since I first called Buckner, I’ve had an excellent experience working with their team. Whether I’m updating my coverage, reporting a claim, or just asking a question, they make the process so smooth.

I know that they have me 100% protected when I need it. Who knew insurance could be painless?
