Our office staff of 7 is fully available to you by telephone or you may drop by our office at any time during business hours (9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.. Mon. - Thurs.; 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. on Fri.).  We are committed to providing quality, personalized service to our clients through stable, top-rated insurance companies that provide coverage for all of your insurance needs at the most competitive prices in Massachusetts.

We are on-line 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Messages can be left on our voice mail or via e-mail; however, at John T. Burns Insurance Agency you will always speak to a "Live Person" during business hours.

Send us a Customer Support Request at any time, report a loss, submit a claim; we will give your request our attention the next business day (if not sooner!).
