Truckers Insurance Associates was founded in 1943 when members of the Iowa Motor Truck Association created the agency to provide insurance products and services to its members. Today, we continue that mission to lead the way by meeting the evolving insurance needs of the transportation industry as an independent, family-owned, wholesale insurance broker.

Our team is your team. Get to know the people that make up Truckers, some seen to the left. For over 75 years, the team at Truckers has been leading the way in the transportation industry. Don’t be shy, say hello

Let’s dive deeper! Hear from Marketing Director, Tanner Bernhard:

Our former office was in West Des Moines and the decision to stay in the area was a no brainer. It is a great community that is continually growing and a place many of our employees call home. We decided to move buildings to allow us room for growth and update our space.

We are a broker of commercial auto insurance and do business across the country. While we might not directly work with those in the community, we are proud to insure the trucks that help get goods to the Des Moines metro area and are proud to call West Des Moines home. 

Service. Service. Service. We believe that offering the best service possible is the greatest way to build loyalty, along with a product line the meets the needs of our customers. We are excited to continue growing and adding members to our team that share our enthusiasm for quality customer service.

There is a constant investment in the community. Home to the biggest mall in Iowa and great shops, fantastic restaurants, and many businesses–you can find everything in West Des Moines.

Although we may look a little different to the community recently as we rebranded at the end of 2020, we have been based in the Des Moines metro since we were founded in 1943 (in West Des Moines since 2004).
