An Icon of Stability for Generations

Shove Insurance Inc. is one of Rhode Island’s oldest businesses. It was founded in 1859 by Judge Isaac Shove, a respected businessman who recognized the importance of insurance. From a small office on Main Street in Pawtucket, Judge Shove spent his entire life serving his customers and left a legacy of expert service and customer satisfaction. It is no wonder that two families, first George Parker Sr. (1910-1937) and George Parker Jr. (1937-1980), and later William Hunt Sr. (1980-2021) and William Hunt Jr. (2022-present), proudly kept the founder’s name for their insurance agency.

Today, Shove Insurance Inc. services customers in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. As a “Trusted Choice” agency, Shove agents use multiple companies to find the best coverage to suit your needs and fit your budget.  The agency is honored to have earned their customers’ business for over 163 years and counting.
