Charles L. Crane Agency Overview
The Charles L. Crane Agency was established in 1885, making it the oldest independent insurance agency west of the Mississippi River. It started when Charles L. Crane, son of a steamboat captain, moved to St. Louis and began writing river marine insurance policies for barge owners travelling the Mississippi.
Those policies began a life-long relationship with the St. Louis community that has stood the test of time. Over the next several decades the Crane Agency would grow to insure generations of local businesses and families. Today Crane is licensed in all 50 states and has expanded operation into what is now one of the largest national insurance brokerage firms in the country.
The agency that still bears Charles Crane’s name continues to hold fast to his principles of honesty, fairness, and family. With each new generation, the company and its brokers have adapted to the changing business landscape, bringing new technology and expertise to their long standing tradition of superior customer service.
When you combine a 130 year legacy with a personal approach and the latest expertise, you get much more than just an insurance broker. You get security, you get stability and you get an advocate.
