Our History

Skeet's Insurance Service, Inc was established in August, 1967. Since that time many changes have taken place. Between 1967 and 1969 Skeet's Insurance Service was an agency on wheels. Founder, L. H. (Skeet) Glidewell converted a van into a mobile office and traveled throughout Stanislaus County writing automobile insurance policies. At that time we were known as Skeet's Mobile Insurance Service. In 1969 the agency rented its first office space at 600 Scenic Drive in Modesto. We have only moved a couple of times since 1969 and we are now located at 2601 Oakdale Rd # H1 in Modesto.

Skeet's two sons soon joined the agency with Timothy joining in 1969 and Michael added in 1973 and it has remained a family run organization to this day.

Tim and Mike purchased the agency as a partnership in October of 1990 so that Skeet could retire after 30 years in the insurance business and devote more attention to his many community services. The Agency was incorporated in 2001 and Timothy retired from the agency in January, 2006.

During the 1970's the agency specialized in writing "high risk" automobile insurance and was known as the "Insurance Problem Specialists". We wrote policies other could not or would not write.  By the late 1970's the agency added many more markets that allowed it to write ALL Drivers (good and bad) and other lines as well (i.e. Homeowners, Fire, Commercial and Workers Comp and Life Insurance).

In the decade of the 1980's the agency began to automate and to concentrate on mostly automobile and property policies. This allowed us to gain the knowledge and experience needed to write insurance in the rapidly changing industry. This help because In 1988 a poorly written insurance proposition caused many insurance carriers to leave the state and many insurance agencies to close or be bought out. Our agency thrived during that time and up until now because we are able to adjust in this business and financial environment.

In 2016 Collin Glidewell joined the agency and will be taking over in May of 2017 when Mike semi retires.

Skeet's Insurance Service, Inc. remains committed to continuing service of the Stanislaus County area with solid insurance products and financially strong insurance carriers. We write all forms of insurance including Automobile Insurance, Motorcycle Insurance, Homeowners and Fire Insurance, Life Insurance, Business Insurance, Workers Comp and Recreation Vehicles Insurance.
