About us

Brim silos, Horsham, farm insurance, business insurance

Western General Insurance has been looking after clients in the Horsham, Wimmera and greater western Victoria region for more than 30 years. Managing Principals Andrew Reichelt and Graeme Deleeuw have been in insurance since 1987, and in 2005 they decided to buy Graeme’s father’s side of the business and come together to form the Western General Insurance business.

Now the business has grown to employ four team members across two locations. You can find us at our main office at 13 Darlot St in Horsham and we also have a satellite office based in Nhill at 7 Victoria St.

Local knowledge, national capability

We may be a local business but we do have national and even international capability through our brokerages (Steadfast and NAS Insurance Brokers) and insurance partners (CGU). Whether you’re looking for insurance for your business (big or small), your home, contents, car, boat, caravan or motorcycle, contact us for your free, no-obligation quotation.

Community is everything
Like many of our clients, we live and work in Horsham, Victoria and surrounds. Our team is pleased to get to know so many people from our community through our involvement with our local footy, bowls and pony clubs.

In fact, at Western General Insurance, we pride ourselves on being truly part of the communities that we service. We’re locally owned and operated – which gives us a competitive advantage because we understand better than anyone the opportunities and challenges facing our clients and their businesses.

“Getting insurance should be as painless for you as possible. We’re all about trying to minimise the hassle for clients. And if they do have the need to make a claim, we’re here to see it through for you.”
Andrew and Graeme, Managing Principals of Western General Insurance

Who we work with
Western General Insurance is part of the NAS Insurance Brokers network as well as the Steadfast broker network.

We’ve also developed tried and trusted relationships with a number of businesses in the area, including:

“Western General has been looking after our family’s insurance needs for 25 years now, including Jenny’s sewing business when she had a shop in Horsham, and our farm which has grown significantly, and is now operated largely by our sons, Steve and Grant. We use Western General because they’re local, they understand our business and the area, and we know if we need to make a claim they’ll be there to take the hassle out of it. As Grant told Graeme at Western General, I’m happy to tell people he’s not a bad bloke.”
