simple human sense
working with independent agents who provide local, personalized expertise
We’re not going to pretend there isn’t an option to buy insurance online. Because, well, there is. They say you can get a quote fast and get the cheapest coverage. But, take a second and ask yourself, does “cheap and easy” give you confidence?
So, what’s the best way to buy insurance? If you ask us, an independent insurance agent!
Your local independent insurance agency is your one-stop-shop for all types of insurance.
Most independent agents offer life, home, car and, business insurance from several companies. This means you may only need one point of contact for all your policies. And, since independent agents offer more than one insurance company’s products, they can focus on finding a policy that fits your needs.
Local support from somebody you know.
When you have questions about your policy, you can call your agent with a familiar area code rather than a 1-800 number. This beats waiting on hold for what feels like forever. Customers often share stories about their independent agent being the first one on the scene after losing their home. For many agents, this is why they became insurance agents – to help people during hard times.
Working with a local, independent agent means you are supporting a local business.
Most independent agencies are locally owned. Many agencies are owned and operated by a family in your community. This means your local, independent agent personally understands the insurance needs for your area. This is extremely valuable since insurance requirements vary from state to state.
