Doing our Best to keep our Community Great 

For more than 30 years General Insurance Agency has delivered insurance and risk management solutions to individuals and businesses out of Huxley, IA.  We’ve been in our current location for thirteen years and we’re proud to be better positioned to serve clients.  We focus on our market rather than any particular line of coverage and we’re a jack-of-all-trades agency.   We serve almost any insurance need and we do so with flexible thorough packages and personalized services. 


Each plan starts with a client, not a coverage line.  This means that we understand clients and their needs before examining coverages and policy possibilities.  As a result, every policy we write is uniquely tailored for the client.  This is beneficial to clients in that it ensures they have the protection they want and saves them money.  Overall, it ensures value.


As residents of Huxley we want to do more than provide insurance to help make the community a better place to live and work. We consider insurance invaluable, but there are other ways to contribute.  Mike is on the city council, and Doug is on the board of directors of a local bank and the board of directors of a local telephone co-op.  Together, they try to help their community grow. 


Mike and Doug both coach youth sports teams and remain social with as many people and groups as possible.  This makes our agency known more and let’s people know that our staff is active and invested in the community.  For Mike and Doug this is essential because both men have longstanding ties to the community.  They were both born and raised in Huxley and graduated from Ballard High School and then from Iowa State University.  They have a legacy here.


All members of our staff participate in, sponsor, and support events that raise funds for charities and charitable causes and that make living in Huxley more fun.  Prairie Fest Parade is one of these events.  In some cases, members of our staff stop by the locations of other businesses just to say ‘hello.’  This is a mark of their desire to be social and active in the community. 


As an agency we’re proud to be in Huxley and to serve the Ballard community and surrounding areas.  As individuals we’re grateful that we get to serve the insurance needs of residents of these areas and help these residents stay financially secure. 


Please contact us or call us to learn more.  You can request a quote if starting on a policy is something you’d like to do.

Our Providers


"The Ballard Community School District has been a loyal General Insurance Agency customer for years. With General Insurance, we have the best of both worlds; competitive rates with a comprehensive product offering, AND the highest standard of personal service one would expect from a local agency. Doug and Mike were born and raised in the community and their commitment to Ballard is evident not only in their service commitment, but also in their ongoing support of our district and students."
- Ottie Maxey of the Ballard Community School District
"Whether it be dealing with insurance on a corporate level handling workplace policies, or a personal level finding an auto policy that suits my family with three driving teenagers- General Insurance Agency does it all! The small town attitude combined with a big city expertise gives me the comfort of knowing I am getting the best services that are available. Since I have begun working with General Insurance- be it business or personal - I have never looked back or thought I could find something better. The Schonhorst brothers deserve an A+ rating.

"I have been with General Insurance for 10 years. Doug, Mike and their staff have provided accountable and thorough service. They are more than willing to explain any insurance coverage and changes that may occur. Their staff is very accessible with questions or claims. I would highly recommend their insurance services."
