On both sites, customers praise Bowen for quick responses, knowledgeable agents and competitive rates. Several customers have worked with the company for over 10 years and said they would recommend it to others. Also, some work with Bowen as their Erie Insurance local agency, notable since Erie also receives high customer ratings.
