About Us - W Insurance Group 253-382-2100

About Us

We began as three separate Farmer's Insurance Agencies in the 1970's. Our three founding Agents formed a partnership and a new Independent Insurance Agency in 1982. In 1984, we incorporated and called ourselves AAA Insurance & Bonding Inc. Changes occurred with the Agency when one of the original partners passed away in 2003.

Both of the remaining partners had a last name beginning with a "W" and four children now working for the Agency. "W" last names along with two generations of families helped guide us toward a new identity- W Insurance Group, a name that represents our family business and our commitment to longevity and service. We will be here for you now and in the future!

W Insurance Group strives to offer you quality insurance coverage, a high level of professional service and a long-term relationship.
