Many insurance companies promise to save you a certain percentage on your insurance when you get a quote from them. But working with an independent insurance agent can offer more than just saving you 15% on your policy. Here are top 4 reasons to work with an independent insurance agent:
1. Personalized Customer Service – Most major insurance companies have an automated directory that you must first go through when you call their customer service line. This can add on the time and effort it takes to do things like reporting a claim, making a payment, or simply asking a question. Working with an independent insurance agent will provide you with personalized, direct service. You will always be able to directly reach your agent. Instead of talking to a different person every time you call, you will get help from the same person who knows your policies and knows you.
2. Personalized Options – An independent insurance agent is able to review many different insurance companies for the best policies that will meet your needs for the right price. Your insurance agent will be able to handle your coverage, assist you with claims and any concerns you may have. At no additional cost, an independent insurance agent will personally shop policies for you and advocate on your behalf.
3. “All in One Pot” – Independent insurance agents can take care of all your insurance needs at once. Rather than dealing with multiple agents and multiple agencies, you can save time by having your auto, flood, home and health insurance policies all handled by the same agent. And if you are a business owner, you can also opt for commercial insurance coverage from the same place that insures your personal policies.
4. Working with a Local – Typically, an independent insurance agent is local to the area you are in. Not only can it be rewarding to see your agent support your community, but they also have valuable knowledge about the city you live in. They can use their expertise to help you protect your assets by reducing certain risks.
Above all, independent insurance agents provide their clients with peace of mind. You can know that your agent will do the work to find you the best policies that not only fit your needs but also save you money.
