Happy Independence Day weekend!!! Our office will be closed on July 4th thru the 6th to celebrate our great countries independence. Our regular hours will resume on July 8th. BE SAFE TRAVELING!

Hi everyone, welcome to Eric Gates’ office. I am a lifetime resident of West Virginia and graduated from Marshall University. I am an avid outdoorsman and enjoy working in the yard and spending time at the lake.

I am proud to say that I have been serving the great state of West Virginia for fifteen years. Being a native, it has been my honor helping the community with their insurance needs. Whether it be Auto Insurance or Homeowners Insurance, it gives me great pleasure knowing that I have earned the satisfaction of customers to provide them with a plan that suits them. Knowing I have their confidence encourages me to find coverage that protects what they love most-their families. Being a family man, I understand the importance of looking for Life Insurance that fits your needs for you and your family in the greatest way possible. That’s why my office provides a Life Insurance plan that is fitted to match your goals. Additionally, my office can assist with Business Insurance and Renters Insurance in Martinsburg, Hedgesville, Spring Mills, Falling Waters, Gerrardstown, and surrounding areas.

As we are now approaching the Summer season, my team can assist with whatever insurance you may need for all your traveling plans. If you and your family or friends enjoy taking long road trips, my office can help you with your Recreational Vehicle Insurance. However, if you prefer to travel the road at high speeds by yourself, we can aid in Motorcycle Insurance as well. Not so much for being on the road, and prefer the water instead? Well, you’re in luck! My office offers Boat Insurance, too! Whatever your summer travels entail, my office has you covered.

I am honored to say that I have qualified for Ambassador Travel and am a Honor Club Agent and Silver Tablet Qualifier. Knowing that I am able to help my customers with the most important things to them and form those relationships which is rewarding in itself. If you are in Inwood, Charles Town, Ranson, Kearneysville, Shepherdstown, Berkley Springs, or surrounding areas, my team can be of service. Whether you are near or far, our team can provide you with outstanding customer service. Stop by our office to meet our wonderful staff! If you can’t come in, not a problem. Feel free to give us a call for a FREE quote. We also have experience with out of state transfers! We look forward to meeting you!
