Our Sustainability Standard
The first thing you need to know about Van Beurden Insurance is that we’re a progressive, forward-thinking company. It shows in the way we do business, and it shows in the kind of business we want to be.
How many insurance agencies do you know that are solar-powered? We may not be the only insurance agency with an array of solar panels on the roofs of our offices, but we’re almost certain we were the first. We’ve made a conscious, deliberate quest to become as paperless as possible, leaving landfills for others to fill with trash. We’ve also installed charging stations in our parking areas so that staff and customers can conveniently re-charge while they visit our offices.
The same passion we have for conserving the precious qualities of our planet are evident in the way we approach our business. While you can earn a college degree in “insurance,” it’s a truism that school kids rarely consider “insurance agent” as a career path.
That’s why the team we’ve assembled to serve you is so special. They come from all walks of life, with different backgrounds yet a common trait: they are bright, innovative professionals, filled with a passion to protect you, your family and your business.
So whether you are visiting Van Beurden Insurance for the first time, or you’ve had a lasting relationship with us, you can be confident that we are more than just an insurance agency. We do more than just sell insurance — we protect what matters most to you, for years to come.
All of us at Van Beurden Insurance share these traits. We’re good neighbors, deeply involved in the communities we live in, and dedicated to leaving the world a better place. It’s a way of doing business that we can use more of. That’s what makes the Van Beurden Insurance a progressive, forward-thinking company.
We became one of California’s largest independent insurance agencies by providing insurance solutions — the kind of personalized, customized and cost-effective solutions you’re looking for.
By working with a wide range of top insurance companies, we have the advantage of providing ideal solutions for the issues you face. You can count on us for cost-effective insurance solutions for property, liability, business auto, Workers’ Compensation, employee benefits, health and wellness, and nearly everything in between. This personalized service is reflected in our streamlined 5-step process highlighted below:
The Van Beurden family story is a classic American tale of success.
It all began with a Dutch immigrant’s dream of a better life for his family. The Van Beurden family was welcomed to Central California in 1957, and though they spoke little English, they had a strong work ethic and a will to carve out a good life in America.
Starting with very little, the family eventually built a thriving restaurant business, first in Yosemite Valley, then on the Central Coast.
In 1966, Bill Van Beurden took a job with Wigh and Associates, and quickly moved up in the small-town agency. By 1975, Bill had the opportunity to purchase the business that would eventually grow to become one of the nation’s top insurance agencies. Bill saw that many local groups, from farms to churches to trucking companies, were under-served. He developed a simple and effective business strategy that concentrated on meeting needs common to the people and businesses of the area. Soon the company’s focus shifted from local to regional and Bill began to realize visions of growth and success.
Family has long been an important part of the business – locations have been opened in California by other Van Beurden family members. Now, a second generation runs the family business, with Bill’s sons Erik and Chris Van Beurden acting as C.E.O and C.O.O. Together, the family continues to uphold the strong business philosophies and ethics on which they were raised.
The Van Beurdens continue to take pride in the fact that the company remains family-owned and operated. From its humble beginnings as a small farming-community agency to a major force in the insurance industry, the agency’s essential mission remains unchanged: to offer its clients unmatched value by providing superior insurance solutions and a higher level of service.
At Van Beurden Insurance Services, Inc., we like to think we have been able to combine the best of both worlds: the resources of a large company with the commitment and family tradition of a smaller firm.
Our philosophy is that happy, experienced, and dedicated employees provide optimum service to the public. We have a tradition of keeping clients once they try us.
We welcome the opportunity for us to prove ourselves to you.
– William J. Van Beurden
