who we are

be sure to insure with shurr

Shurr Insurance is more than your typical agency. We are Valparaiso’s longest-running family-owned and operated insurance company. With four generations of family history , we have been rooted to serve the Northwest Indiana community since 1923. Our goal has always been to be the trustworthy, familiar faces you can turn to for all your insurance needs. Rather than working for the insurance companies, we work solely for you. As an independent agency, we have access to some of the best insurance companies. That freedom to shop allows us to find the ideal policy that is suited for you at the lowest cost.

We know insurance is complicated, but the Shurr family guarantees to make it easy.
