The Steck Insurance Agency, located in Alton, IL, was founded in 1905 by Joseph Steck and later managed by his son Harry Steck.  February 1969, O. Linn Cooper purchased the agency and changed the name to Steck-Cooper & Company. E.J. Uhlemeyer became associated with the agency in 1972 and eventually purchased the agency in 1977.

Terry Hoefle & Dave Wager joined the agency in 1980 & 1989 respectively. The agency was then re-located to East Alton in 1989.Terry Hoefle & Dave Wager purchased the agency in May of 1992 and later that year relocated to locations in East Alton & Belleville. In September 2013 the agency consolidated and relocated to its current location at 2810 Frank Scott Pkwy W., Belleville, IL 62223.

On January 1, 2015 the agency was purchased by Matt Hoefle & Andrew Allen.  Matt & Andrew have both been officers of the agency for over 10 years. They plan to continue the tradition of service as well as focus on modernization and expansion of the agency.

Our Approach and Our Community Involvement

We counsel our clients extensively before purchases are made and after. This ensures that we know our clients’ risks and that we identify the coverages that protect against these risks.  It also ensures that clients understand what they purchase and how to keep their coverages current.

Providing insurance is important to us, but there is more that we do.  We involve ourselves in the communities we serve and we try to be as big a part of these communities as possible.  

We’d love to tell you more about our agency so please contact us or give us a call.  If you’re ready to start on a policy you can request a quote.
