GEICO opens local office in Melbourne area

WEST MELBOURNE, Fla., Aug. 27, 2020—GEICO has opened a new local office at 865 Palm Bay Rd. NE, Suite 101 in West Melbourne. Amber Smith will lead a team of licensed agents at the new location.

Smith is no stranger to GEICO, having worked at the company's corporate office in Macon, Georgia for 15 years prior to opening her local office. During that time, she earned the distinguished honor of selling the most insurance policies out of any GEICO sales associate in a single year.

Smith and her staff members—Joyce Sawyer, Luis Lazzari, Richard Edwards, Dennis Luna and Curtis Meador—can help customers purchase car insurance, as well as coverage for motorcycles, renters, condos, ATVs, RVs, umbrella, identity protection, flood and commercial auto insurance.

For those who like to spend time on the water along Florida's many miles of Atlantic coastline, the Melbourne area local office also can assist with insurance for boats of all sizes and personal watercrafts.

Agents in the Melbourne local office are bilingual and ready to assist Spanish-speaking customers, as well.

"As the largest auto insurer in the state, millions of Floridians turn to GEICO because of the competitive pricing and outstanding service we provide," Smith said. "My office looks forward to continuing this tradition of excellence while eagerly building a long-term relationship with customers living in Brevard, Volusia, Orange and Seminole Counties as well as the neighboring beaches."

The Melbourne local office team can work with NASA employees at Cape Canaveral to see if they qualify for GEICO's federal employee discount. Additionally, staff members look forward to helping those stationed at Patrick Air Force Base to see if they qualify for GEICO's military discount.

GEICO agents in the Melbourne local office also look to bring savings to policyholders through multi–policy and special association and alumni discounts. For example, alumni from Florida Atlantic, Florida International, University of Florida, University of Central Florida, University of North Florida and Embry-Riddle may qualify for additional savings.

As a new small business, GEICO's Melbourne area local office values getting involved in the local community. The office supports Samaritan's Purse and is also a member of the Melbourne Chamber of Commerce.

GEICO's Melbourne area local office is open Monday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Customers who would like to meet an insurance agent in-person must call ahead of time to set up an appointment and receive further guidance. The office receives regular cleaning and disinfecting and has social distancing measures in place.
