DOLLING INSURANCE AS BEEN A FAMILY RUN BUSINESS FOR MORE THAN A CENTURY.
For more than a CENTURY, Dolling Insurance has been working to meet the changing needs of our clients. It has become so much more than a business to us . . . it’s a way of life.
Dolling Insurance was officially secured by the family in 1902. Over the years, it has been passed down through the generations. Currently, fourth-generation owner, Travis Dolling, is carrying on the family legacy.
OUR COMPANY HISTORY
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 is still at its original location — 804 Main Street in beautiful Red Bluff, California.
