Lately it seems that we are overwhelmed with commercials for all kinds companies looking for your hard earned dollars to cover your auto, home, and everything else. The common thread is that if you buy a policy, you save may money! They only have one company to place you with…theirs! It’s a one size fits all approach. The problem with insurance is that it doesn’t work that way.
If you go to an independent agent (like me), We have a bunch of companies we can quote and our concern is not the insurance company, but you the client. We want to make sure you get the best coverage for the best possible price.
Your local independent agent can also be a resource for you. Need a plumber? Chances are your agent know one or knows who to ask to find one. Is it all about policies and premium? No, it’s also about service and advice. You will get serviced at the 800 number companies, but the difference is that at an independent agency, we know you and just as importantly, you know us.
Should you report a claim? Will it cost you down the road? Your independent agent will help guide you through what you should do following a loss. When you purchase a policy, you are not buying from the COMPANY…you are buying from the agent. And we appreciate it!
