Local, Reliable Insurance for Businesses & Families

John T. Cook & Associates was founded in Myrtle Beach, S.C. in May 1983 by John “Tommy” Cook. Over the years, the Myrtle Beach insurance agency has grown from a staff of three to a staff of 13 insurance professionals in multiple locations, helping clients with auto insurance, homeowners insurance, and business insurance, with a specialized focus in the restaurant insurance and condominium association insurance niches.

In 2009, the agency became a member of the Correll Insurance Group, one of the largest non-bank owned independent agencies in South Carolina, offering a range of competitive insurance products, from customized business solutions to personalized car and home insurance. The company has more than 200 insurance professionals across the state, and provides the John T. Cook agency with access to more markets, which means better options and more competitive pricing for clients.

Unlike those big-name agencies, we don’t work for one insurance carrier with a one-size-fits-all solution. We instead get to know you personally to identify all your options and help you compare insurance rates and coverage choices. We are a Trusted Choice® independent agency, and represent most of the nation’s leading home, business, restaurant, and auto insurance companies. It’s easy to see why the John T. Cook team has earned the trust and respect of Myrtle Beach, Loris, and the Grand Strand’s businesses and families.

Local Agent. National Support.

Correll Insurance Group offers the best of both worlds—you get to use a local, independent agent who lives in your town and knows you personally, but this agent is backed by a strong, national firm that’s been serving the Carolinas for more than 80 years. So you don’t have to choose between having a personal relationship with your agent and knowing your insurance has enough resources. You’ll get both with Correll.
