Welcome to CAV

My father began CAV In 1955 as an alternative to large, impersonal insurance agencies. He built his practice on individual relationships in our community, truly getting to know his clients. We are proud that many of those relationships have spanned decades and are fortunate to count several generations of these families as part of the CAV family today.

We remain focused on proactively addressing risk issues for our business and individual clients. For each policyholder, we perform annual reviews to ensure today’s coverage can meet tomorrow’s uncertainties. We also regularly explore new policy options that might provide better coverage or reduced cost.

We believe clients deserve:

  • Personal attention. We focus on maintaining strong relationships with those who value the security of a trusted advisor.
  • Extensive choice of carrier. With a far-reaching network of providers, policyholders don’t have to sacrifice access to best-in-class insurers for one-on-one care.
  • Simplified processes. From electronic document preparation to real-time digital communication, we streamline finding, reviewing and renewing coverage.
  • Proactive policy management. Whether you come to us for personal or business insurance, we will perform annual reviews and check-ins to continually reevaluate risk levels and coverage needs.
  • Dedicated service. Working with a professional who is familiar with your policy and needs improves coverage management year after year.
