Our Company

Our Story

John E. Peakes Insurance Agency is a family owned business that started in Ventura, California during the year 1969 by John E. Peakes Sr. Then in 1993 we opened our second location in Lancaster. During 2001 John E. Peakes Jr. took over the family business opening two more locations in Lancaster and Monterey giving our agents the opportunity to serve the insurance needs of individuals, families and businesses up and down the coast of California.

We Work For You

As an independent, locally owned, insurance agency we do not work for one specific insurance company, instead we represent over 30 different insurance companies allowing us to match you, the client, with the company that best suits your coverage, pricing and service needs. At each renewal, we shop your rate with each of these trusted companies, so that we are positive you are always getting the most affordable rate. Our team of agents are here as your insurance advocate, which means you are never left on your own.

Our Community

John E. Peakes Insurance Agency is committed to our community and its members. We value our partnership with local businesses and show our support through our Partners Program. We have supported local charities, such as The Ventura County Humane Society and The Lustgarten Foundation, participated and sponsoring fundraising events.

Our team of agents is committed to providing you with the best customer service, handling all your insurance needs and questions quickly and efficiently. All offices are open Monday through Friday 8:30am to 6: 00pm, as well as Saturday 10:00am to 2:00pm. Can’t make it into the office? That’s OK! We know how busy life can get, which is why offer to write policies over the phone and through email so that you don’t have to step into the office. Just give us a call on our toll free number 888-277-4460 and our agents will take it from there!
