New call-to-action


Joe Morten & Son, Inc. began in 1936 in South Sioux City, Nebraska, when Joseph A. Morten identified a unique business opportunity helping truckers navigate the new motor carrier regulations recently enacted by both the federal government and the state of Nebraska. What began as a one-man operation rapidly expanded into a small company with multiple employees providing specialized insurance products unique to the trucking industry while demonstrating outstanding customer service to the hundreds of truck drivers & trucking companies they served.

The success of Joe Morten & Son, Inc. was so exceptional that it led to the formation of Great West Casualty Company a mere twenty years later. Great West Casualty Company was formed to manage the operations of an insurance company, overseeing departments, such as underwriting and claims, while Joe Morten & Son continued its mission of working directly with trucking companies, providing the insurance products and services they needed.

Today, Joe Morten & Son has a national presence, representing over 6,700 customers in 46 states. Alongside its corporate office, which remains in South Sioux City, Joe Morten & Son, Inc. has service locations in: Phoenix, Arizona; Littleton, Colorado; Nampa, Idaho; Willowbrook, Illinois; Urbandale, Iowa; Grand Island, Nebraska; Wilsonville, Oregon; Knoxville, Tennessee; and Arlington, Texas. We are Great West Casualty Company’s largest agency.

Joe Morten & Son, Inc. is affiliated with Great West Casualty Company, which is owned by the Old Republic International Corporation group of insurance companies. Old Republic International Corporation ranks among the nation’s 50 largest publicly held insurance organizations with a substantial interest in major segments of the industry.

Commercial Truck Insurance


For every commercial truck on the road, there’s a story. For a driver, it may be a love of independence and the satisfaction of watching the miles roll by. If you’re a motor carrier, maybe it’s the drive and commitment that moved you from the helm of your own rig to the command of a fleet. We understand that the roads that got you here are unique, so a cookie-cutter truck insurance policy just won’t cut it. Our team of commercial truck insurance experts get to know you and help you to find coverage, premium options, training, and resources that are as unique to your business as the stories that built it.
