Rux Carter Insurance
InsuranceFinancial Products & Services
For nearly 100 years, Rux Carter Insurance Agency has served the needs of families and businesses in Shelby County and surrounding areas. We are proud to claim the title of being the oldest insurance agency in Shelby County.
Mr. J. R. White established the agency in 1906. During those days, insurance policies were recorded in logbooks. We actually have some of those original policies in our office today.
Rux Carter sold the agency to the present owner, George Bentley, in 1977. George Bentley started working in the agency in 1970 after graduating from college. George has been very active with the Alabama Independent Insurance Association. He served as president in 1998 and received the Alabama Insurance Agent of the Year award in 1999.
Rux Bentley joined the staff of Rux Carter Insurance Agency in 1994 becoming the third generation of his family to work in the agency. Rux received the Young Independent Agent of the Year award in 1998 and again in 2007. He served as chairman of the Alabama Young Agents Committee in 2000. Currently, he serves as the Secretary/Treasurer of the Alabama Independent Insurance Agents Association.
Today, we've certainly come a long way from the log books of the past. Our office is equipped with the latest technology that enables us to provide our customers with quick and accurate quotes with all the many companies we represent. The ability to comparatively rate allows the agency to provide the best available price for every need and situation.
