Shove Insurance, Inc.

Shove Insurance Inc. is one of Rhode Island’s oldest businesses. It was founded in 1859 by Judge Isaac Shove, a respected businessman who recognized the importance of insurance. From a small office on Main Street in Pawtucket, Judge Shove spent his entire life serving his customers and left a legacy of expert service and customer satisfaction. It is no wonder that two families, first George Parker Sr. (1910-1937) and George Parker Jr. (1937-1980), and later William Hunt Sr. (1980-2021) and William Hunt Jr. (2022-present), proudly kept the founder’s name for their insurance agency.

Today, Shove Insurance Inc. services customers in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. As a “Trusted Choice” agency, Shove agents use multiple companies to find the best coverage to suit your needs and fit your budget. The agency is honored to have earned their customers’ business for over 163 years and counting.

We offer the following coverages for small businesses

General Liability (GL) Insurance

General Liability is the most common form of insurance for small businesses, as every single professional is required to have some form of general liability coverage. Coterie offers both standard, year-long policies, as well as flexible duration, project-based coverage through our partners.

Business Owners Policy (BOP)

A Business Owners Policy (BOP) is more versatile, and protects both a business owner’s business and property – all in one package (typically combining General Liability and Property Insurance). This type of insurance for small businesses can reimburse the policyholder for damaged personal property.

Professional Liability Policy (PL)

Professional Liability (PL), also known as Errors and Omissions, a type of liability insurance that covers you for failure to uphold contractual promises in mostly service-based professions.
