Agency Offers Coverage for Homes, Vehicles and Other ‘Toys’
In 1995, Peter Laczko was working for a South Florida jet ski/motorcycle dealership. He quickly realized customers needed a specialized insurance agent who could offer proper coverage for their motorized “toys.” Instead of referring business to other agents, Peter decided to meet that need himself.
The entrepreneur rented space at the dealership, and worked with customers to make sure they got the insurance coverage they needed. On his days off, Peter drove around the state of Florida, marketing his insurance products to other dealerships. After four years, he decided to focus 100% on his insurance business and opened Peter Laczko Insurance.
Fast-forward to 2022, and we find Peter celebrating his company’s 25th anniversary. He and his wife Lisa are happy to be marking that milestone in Woodstock, their chosen hometown since 2006. They were drawn here by what Lisa called “the wholesome way of life Cherokee County offered.”
“Before we were married, Lisa and I visited the Woodstock area several times. We knew this was where we wanted to raise a family and serve the community,” Peter said.
When he isn’t busy helping customers, Peter and Lisa are involved in community service. They are members of Woodstock City Church, sponsor Circle of Friends (an organization that supports adults with disabilities in Cherokee County) and support sports teams at Sequoyah High School, where their daughter Abbi, 17, attends school. They also have two adult sons: Matthew and Nicky.
Lisa volunteers and teaches exercise classes to Parkinson’s patients. At the height of the COVID-19 lockdown, Peter and Lisa coordinated donations for MUST Ministries, and raised money to deliver lunches to the nurses at Northside Hospital Cherokee.
Peter’s desire to help others is the foundation of his agency. Peter Laczko Insurance offers coverage for homes and vehicles at competitive rates. He specializes in coverage for motorcycles, boats, recreational watercraft (jet skis, etc.), RVs, travel trailers, ATVs, UTVs, golf carts and more. Commercial policies also are available.
“For us, transparency is key. We make sure that our customers get a fair deal every step of the way,” Peter said. “Whether you are new to RVs, or have owned your watercraft for years, our experts will find the right coverage for you at the right price, efficiently and effectively. ”
Why Call Peter Laczko?
Customers get direct access to Peter when they call the office. He is licensed in 50 states, has citizenship in the United States, Canada and Hungary, and speaks multiple languages, including English, French and Hungarian.
Peter was named Safeco Producer of the Year (2019 and 2020) and his firm was Safeco’s top Georgia New Business Agency (2018). The agency has more than 1,000 Google reviews and a 4.8-star rating. Peter Laczko Insurance was runner up in the insurance category for the 2022 Around Woodstock Readers’ Choice poll.
While Peter can help bundle auto and home insurance policies to save customers money, he also focuses on the high-end toys that many insurance companies don’t cover.
“People often don’t realize that motorcycles, boats, RVs and golf carts require coverage that is different from car insurance,” he said.
Through Peter Laczko Insurance, customers can purchase total loss replacement coverage for the first five years after purchasing their toy. If the unit is stolen, or unable to be repaired due to damage, the policy covers a full replacement. After five years, the policy will cover the price you originally paid.
With the ability to shop insurance policies through different companies, including Progressive, Travelers, Safeco, Dairyland and National General, Peter is able to find the best rates and save his clients considerable amounts of money.
Peter helped Donna Lee save money on home, auto and RV insurance. “I have been in the health insurance business since 2006,” she said, “and have struggled to find a home and auto agent that was customer-oriented, responsive, professional, efficient, and competitive. … The process was smooth, quick and easy. I had been trying to pull quotes out of other agencies for almost two weeks with no results. … The art of answering and returning calls in this industry has been lost, but not in his office.”
Customers Say It Best
“I had insurance on my trailer faster than I could get a Big Mac. Their personnel were respectful, got me what I needed and didn’t try to sell me a policy I didn’t need. I will follow my insurance for my trailer any day with these folks. 5 stars!” — Curtis B.
“Great, pain-free purchase … he even asked if I was a first responder or military vet for the discount. I would recommend any first responder or military vet use this dealership. Even though I am four hours away, I will definitely purchase from them again.” — J. Locha
“I just bought a new car and was overwhelmed when I saw my insurance went up a lot. I called Peter Laczko Insurance and they were so helpful and quick to provide me a quote and get me into a new insurance plan. Will definitely use them for all my future insurance needs.” — Alexa V.
