What is an independent insurance agent?
Many insurance agents represent only one insurance company, so they can only offer you coverage from the one company. The company that they represent. An Independent Insurance agent works with multiple insurance companies and they have the ability to shop for you and find the best rate for your coverage; working for you.
Why should you use an independent insurance agent?
Best Coverage for best price to fit your needs Your independent insurance agent saves you time and money. Your policy price can vary greatly depending on what company has your policy. Every month we have more satisfied customers who contacted us to check on the premium prices for the same coverage only to find that they have been overpaying for years. There is nothing more satisfying than being able to help someone save money.
Save Time With one call you can shop several different companies, and you only need to give out your important information one time. An independent insurance will look for the best policy for you, your belongings and your situation. And by the way everything is insurable (ie mobile homes, multi-use property, etc) - you just need to find a company who fits your needs. Your independent agent probably already knows what companies will and which ones will not fit your needs.
Make sure that the coverage you buy has value It doesn't do you any good to find a cheap rate if when you need your insurance coverage it is not there. An independent agent wants to keep their clients happy so they remember the difference between price and value, and find the best for their clients.
