BRISTOL – In its 137th year in business, C.V. Mason Insurance Co. is perpetuating the legacy of its founders.

The family-owned agency based on Main Street in Bristol provides competitive coverage options to clientele both new and longstanding, with a strong reputation for customer service and top-quality insurance.

After all, fifth-generation owner Tim Wilson has a family legacy to protect.

“We do our best to keep our clients and employees happy,” Wilson said. “It’s done pretty well for our family over the generations. We keep plugging along.”

The agency works with at least 11 different top-rated insurance providers to offer auto, home, life and small business insurance in addition to a variety of other types of plans.

Under the auto umbrella, for example, are plans for motorcycle enthusiasts, RV owners, even boat insurance. Commercial insurance plans cover property owners, landscapers, contractors and other types of business owners.

If you are leasing an apartment, renters insurance is encouraged to protect your assets in case a fire, flood or another disaster happens. Likewise, plans are available to building landlords and condominium associations.

New clients will find the service and support provided by C.V. Mason representatives to be much more personalized than that of national providers. That’s one of the benefits to working with an independent agency – no waiting on hold for hours for an automated recording that doesn’t get you anywhere.

Wilson is the great-great-grandson of Carlos V. Mason, who brought his father’s insurance office from Unionville to Bristol in 1883. Between 1900 and 1950 two other partners joined the agency, William Neubauer and C.E. Mason.

Today, C.V. Mason remains one of the most trusted independently-owned insurance agencies in the area with over 4,000 clients and counting.

Staff is known to generously support the surrounding community, providing charitable outreach year-round.

“We’ve been on Main Street in downtown Bristol all of our existence; the Bristol area has been good to us,” Wilson said.

Even through the COVID-19 pandemic, the agency continues to provide service with most staff working from home.

“People still need insurance, so it gives us a job to do every day,” Wilson said of these trying times. “We’ve been busy retaining our clients and trying to save people money wherever we can.”
