Thank you for considering a partnership with Hardee Insurance Group. As the owners of Hardee Auto Sales, Inc., we are excited to be able to offer more services to our customers while building a business that contributes back to the community. Unlike the automobile industry, we hope you never use the products we sell you. That’s right… We hope your family never experiences a loss, but unfortunately that’s not real life. So when that event happens, we want you to know we will be your friend and partner to walk through the disaster.
During my work experience for Horry County Public Works and as a General Contractor, I have seen natural disasters that have devastated families. The peace of mind that comes with having the proper insurance is the only thing that keeps these families going in the aftermath of the storm. We understand the insurance business is more than building a book of premiums, we are also protecting families from the loss of a home or lifestyle. - Trent
