It's springtime here in Hickory! This time of year is great to use for reviewing, renewing, and refreshing. Give our office a call whether you're a current or new customer and we'd be happy to assist you however we can!

My name is Lance L. Cook, your Good Neighbor and local State Farm Agent. My wife, Ellen, and our three children, Lance Jr., Andy and MaryElla, and I have been enjoying the Hickory community for 18 years.

Our office on Highway 127 in the Viewmont area of Hickory, NC has been open for over 5 years. Ours is one of only eleven State Farm agents with two offices in the state of North Carolina. We service Northwest Hickory, Taylorsville, Lenoir, Hudson, Granite Falls and beyond, providing you with auto, home, health and life insurance as well as financial services.

We have qualified for President's Club and Senior Vice Presidents Club. We have also been awarded Chairman Circle 13 times, and Ambassadors Club every year. We pride ourselves in quickly answering the phones and providing excellent customer service. We are also the only local office open until 5:30 on weekdays and Saturdays from 9am-12pm.

We sponsor Lenoir Rhyne University Athletics and the LRU Bears Club. We also are a Platinum sponsor for Hickory Academy, (HCA) sponsoring both the athletic and academic programs at HCA. I also sponsor the Newton Conover Football Golf tournament as well as St. Stephens and Hickory High Athletics. We have the opportunity to teach Insurance classes at our local high school too.

I have a dedicated team of licensed insurance representatives who are committed to providing our customers with personalized service and care. With their knowledge of the vast number of State Farm insurance products, they are uniquely positioned to work with you to understand your goals and identify ways to help protect them. And they are local and live in the same communities you do - Hickory, Conover, Lenoir, Taylorsville, Valdese, Lincolnton, etc.

Our team takes great pride in helping you understand your insurance and ensure you are getting the appropriate, personalized coverage to fit your unique needs. And you can believe we know what we are talking about - my team and I have a combined 60 years of insurance experience! Just check out our Google reviews - our customers love us! We currently are licensed in three different states: North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia so we can serve you better.
