About River Valley Capital

River Valley Capital Corporation was started in 2003 by David Kordell, Dave received his experience by working for the largest truck dealership in the country in the finance and insurance division.  In 2003, the finance company started out with one employee and Dave.  After about four years, Dave decided to launch an insurance agency division of the company to diversify his operation.  In late 2007, he hired a college friend (Tom Friedel). 

River Valley Capital Insurance started with 3 employees and had a very limited capital investment to start the operation.  Since 2007, the agency has grown to 20 outstanding employees with many years of trucking/insurance experience.  Tom credits the growth and success of the agency to all the employees. The agency is located in Dubuque which makes it perfect for servicing the majority of the transportation clients in the Midwest but has the capability to serve clients Nationwide.

River Valley Capital Insurance is all you need in one place

As an Owner-operator or a motor carrier, you will naturally want to secure the best truck insurance at the most cost-effective price. Unfortunately, this can take a lot of time (which takes the focus off your main operation).  The good news is that River Valley Capital Insurance will give you the product knowledge to allow you to make an informed decision on your policy.  Many times the lowest price can be the most expensive insurance if you have exclusions in the policy.   River Valley Capital insurance can assist with affordable protection to secure your business assets and put your mind at ease.

They’ll guide you through your choices and find the solution that works best for your business.
