About Our Agency
Serving Local Clients Since 1902
Dolling Insurance has been a family run business since 1924. Three generations of Dollings, along with their kind and helpful staff, have been providing customers with the best insurance at the best price. In fact, two generations of Dollings, Tod and Travis, still look after your needs.
Dolling Insurance was first established in Red Bluff, California in 1889 as the M.R. Hook Agency. George B. Champlin, the future father-in-law of Herman Dolling, purchased and ran the agency from 1924 to 1933.
Between 1933 and 1939 the agency was run by Herbert Gans. Shortly before enlisting in World War II, Herman Dolling ran the agency. While Herman was in Europe, his wife Eleanor Champlin Dolling ran the business from 1941 to 1946.
Upon Herman Dolling’s return in 1946, he renamed the business Herman Dolling Insurance. It has been operated under this name since this time. Dolling Insurance has been a family run business for more than 76 years and is still at its original location -- 804 Main Street in beautiful Red Bluff, California.
