Why Use An Independent Agency?

Here's Why.......

Are you trying to choose between dealing with an insurance company directly or working with an Independent Insurance Agency? Although you might think they would be exactly the same they’re not. There are quite a few differences in dealing with insurance companies versus an Independent Agency. Here are some of the benefits of working with an Independent Insurance Agency:

Personalization: Many insurance companies have replaced their employees with automated recordings, but Independent Insurance Agencies have not. We continue to provide personalized service to our customers. If you have to make a claim, do you want to sit and push buttons and listen to recordings or, would you prefer to talk to a real person? Not only will we assist you with your claim, Independent Insurance Agents will also answer any questions you have and help you report your loss to the insurance company.

Locally owned: Independent Insurance Agency employees live locally and this is an invaluable benefit when choosing the type of insurance you should purchase. Since we live in your area we know what insurance coverage you need to protect assets like your home, vehicles, business and, anything else you own of value. For example, we know if flooding is common where you live and the risks involved. We can recommend extra insurance to compensate while other insurance company representatives who live across the country have no idea about your area.

Involvement in the community: Since we live locally, Independent Insurance Agents are involved in the community. We are very knowledgeable and supportive of the community in different ways.  Some Agencies donate money to local charities or assist with fundraising events while others serve on local boards. Having the opportunity to see us helping our community testifies that we’re trustworthy to do business with.

Reputation: Even with hundreds of ways to advertise today a business’s reputation still says a lot. Well established Independent Insurance Agencies have worked hard on their reputations and we want to keep them. As well as working hard to always keep our customers happy Independent Insurance Agencies are financially stable so you can always be confident that your valuable possessions are protected. Getting quotes from an internet based insurance company is quick and easy but wouldn’t you prefer knowing who and what you’re dealing with?

Affordable one-stop service: When you deal with an Independent Insurance Agency, we can help you with all of your insurance needs including your home, automobile and business.
