Pittsfield, MA -- Haddad Dealerships of the Berkshires is expanding its partnership with MountainOne Insurance Agency to offer onsite insurance sales at Haddad Toyota, according to a joint announcement by Haddad Dealerships President George Haddad and MountainOne Insurance President Jonathan Denmark.

Stated Haddad, “We are excited to grow the partnership with onsite insurance service at our Toyota dealership. MountainOne Insurance’s expertise only enhances the offerings here at Haddad.”

According to Denmark, “Haddad has a successful sales history and provides exceptional service to its clients. This goes hand in hand with MountainOne Insurance’s personalized policy recommendations from our experienced professionals. Broadening the onsite insurance service at Haddad Toyota enables MountainOne Insurance and Haddad to provide a full package of services to auto buyers at all Haddad locations.”

The strategic partnership allows MountainOne agents to sell personal insurance products within Haddad Dealership locations. Vehicle buyers work directly with MountainOne’s licensed agents during a purchase in a seamless and integrated process. While obtaining vehicle insurance, buyers will also have the opportunity to review other policy needs with MountainOne’s representative, and take advantage of available multi-policy discounts. Clients will also be able to utilize the important in-house claims service at MountainOne Insurance, which provides personal assistance with the difficult and complex claims process, should the need arise.

In 2017, the partnership program launched with several agents onsite at Haddad’s Subaru East Street location as well as offering services at Haddad Hyundai and Haddad Nissan. Now, Denmark states the program has grown to include Haddad Toyota on Pittsfield-Lenox Road.  The team now includes Branch Manager Milton Ferguson and Account Executives Ryan Morrissey and James Reidy.
