A Personalized Approach Toward Insurance Coverage for Californians

At David Tennant Insurance Agency, we work alongside clients throughout the Central Coast. With a little local flavor, our agents offer more than just insurance products – they offer local insight into risk. When you call our office, you will get a live person to assist. Together, we can create the most comprehensive coverage at the best available price.

Working Alongside California Residents and Businesses

Regardless of the type of policy requested – life insurance, personal insurance, business insurance, etc. – our process remains consistent. Agents work with clients one-on-one to discover what their requirements entail. Then, we seek out an insurance carrier that matches the client’s protective and budgetary needs.

As an independent insurance agency, we have access to many different providers, which reflects in every policy we produce. For clients, this association translates into a direct relationship with a local agent, complemented by a reliable insurance product.

Homeowners and auto insurance serve as the foundation of the personal insurance program we promote. Additional coverage options include life insurance, as well as customizable coverage for motorcycles, boats, and other recreational vehicles. Bundling these offerings into a single, streamlined policy can provide cost savings and access to additional coverage selections.

We also offer a business insurance program, designed to be flexible to a wide-range of commercial industries. To learn more about the options available, please contact our agency.

I have been a client of Dave Tennant for 9 years. Dave was referred to me by a friend, who said he was really good and, lo and behold, he, and his entire office staff ARE fantastic! I have stayed with Dave even though I live 90 miles away. Dave routinely shops for the best insurance coverage for your needs, and is happy and willing to modify coverage to adjust to changing circumstances. He is diligent and friendly, and even called me after a wildfire almost took my home, to make sure I didn’t need help with anything. I not only consider him my insurance agent, I consider him a friend. I would recommend him to anyone.

I have my car insurance with Dave Tennant since the early 80’s. He’s been with me through thick and thin, from Porsches to a few too many tickets and a pinch… he’s that kind of guy. Dave works hard to keep me on the road and covered, and at a darn good price. He’s good at fixing some unique situations too, from insuring Historical cars to Company cars. I’ve got three of them with Dave, and would trust him with anything… his word is his bond and you just can’t find a whole lot of that these days. Suffice it to say, I highly recommend him.
