About Shelter

We're building a company to serve you!

The Shelter Insurance® group of companies is a leader in the insurance industry, providing customers with exceptional insurance. Since opening our doors in 1946, we have become one of the most successful and financially sound regional insurance groups in the country. In 1986, we introduced an international reinsurance operation, specializing in reinsuring property around the world.

Our policy for customer satisfaction and overall success is simple: emphasize integrity, excellence, and a commitment to improvement. Our goal is to benefit our customers, our communities, our employees, and our agents. Our friendly, professional way of doing business has transformed us from a small company providing Missourians affordable car insurance into a leading corporation offering a variety of insurance products in 17 states.

Shelter Insurance Companies include Shelter Mutual Insurance, Shelter General Insurance, Shelter Life Insurance, and Shelter Reinsurance Company, as well as Haulers Insurance Company Inc.. These are serviced by approximately 2,000 employees throughout our operating area.

Our 1,300 Shelter Insurance® agents are licensed professionals, trained to make sure you have insurance protection when you need it. The insurance products we provide are specifically designed to best suit you, and include protection for your home, life, car, farm, business, and more.

We consistently receive high ratings from A.M. Best Company (a national firm that rates the financial strength and operating performance of insurance companies). Nine out of ten surveyed Shelter customers would recommend us to anyone seeking insurance.

Mission Statement

Shelter Insurance® will be a dynamic group of companies focused on providing financially secure insurance protection and services to individuals and businesses, a quality working environment, emphasis on easy-to-use services, a commitment to continuous improvement, and a passion for pleasing our customers.
