Why an Independent Agent?

Because You Want an Agent Who Serves You, Not a Phone Representative Serving an Insurer

These days, you have many choices in how to buy your insurance. For example, insurance television commercials advertise 1-800 numbers and tout how easy their coverage is to buy.

What they don’t tell you is whether it’s the right choice for you.

And how could they know?

Buying your insurance through a 1-800 number will get you insurance quickly, and you might even get it cheaply. But it may not be great coverage for you.

Chances are, you’ll never speak to the customer service rep who sold you the coverage again. Do you have a problem with your insurance? You’ll probably be speaking to someone else.

Have a question about whether to file a claim? Prepare to talk to a third person. In fact, you’ll probably talk to a different person every time you call.


Not All Local Agents Are Created Equal

A local agent can provide the personalized service you can’t receive from a 1-800 number on TV.

Local agents are members of your community who will meet with you and develop a relationship so that they have a better idea of your unique, ongoing insurance needs.

However, some local agents work for only one insurer. These agents may say they provide great coverage, but those will only be great options from their one and only company.

As a result, you can never be sure that they are truly giving you great coverage or great prices available in the industry.

A Local, Independent Agent Serves You, Not an Insurance Company

A local, independent agent can take the time to provide the individualized service you can’t receive with a 1-800-number on a commercial. They can also provide a range of choices that a local agent bound to one insurance company simply can’t.

An independent, local agent takes time to discuss your needs and the things that are important to you, then offers great coverage to you from a whole host of companies.

Beyond that, a local agent develops a long-term business relationship with you and your family.

Whenever you have a question about changes in coverage, you can simply call your local, independent agent and know that you’re receiving prudent advice. And when a mishap strikes, and you need someone you can trust, your local agent is nearby to help.

In short, a local, independent insurance agent can provide a great quote nearly as quickly as a 1-800 number representative, but that great quote will truly be great and will be from many companies.

Additionally, your relationship with your independent agent will last years longer.
