About Our Agency

The Giles family has been helping South Carolina families meet their insurance needs for almost 50 years. Winston Giles started with Allstate Insurance Company in 1965. His sons, Craig and Brad, joined him in the late 1990s. Winston retired in 2001 and the brothers took over ownership. Craig Giles opened the Giles Independent Insurance Agency in 2012 in order to offer clients a greater choice of companies and policies to meet their needs.

The companies we represent all have A.M. Best financial strength ratings of A or higher as well as strong ratings by organizations such as J.D. Power and The Better Business Bureau.
