Why choose an Independent Insurance Agent?

What is better? Independent vs. Broker? What is the difference? Is there even a difference? Let’s compare & see!

  1. Independent Agents Shop Multiple Carriers – Independent agents are able to shop multiple insurance carriers with one application. Agencies carry contracts with multiple A+ rated insurance companies (versus just one) and can compare several quotes instantaneously. This is a huge advantage for you, eliminating the need to submit multiple applications to different carriers to find the best and cheapest option. Standard insurance agents are limited to their products and no others.

  2. Independent Agents Save Time & Money – With more choices comes a variety of coverage options and price points, saving you time and money. Agents do the shopping and you do the saving. It’s a Win-Win!

  3. Independent Agents are Licensed Professionals – Agents offer their experience, expert knowledge, and guidance when it comes to selecting the right policy. They are able to explain the complex insurance world to you and make sure you understand all aspects of your policy. When independents set up your policy, they are doing all the research for you- eliminating errors and ensuring your insurance needs are met. According to U.S. Insurance Shopping Study by J.D. Power, “Shoppers are increasingly reliant on agent recommendations when considering and quoting insurers.” Be certain that your home and auto are properly covered.

  4. Independent Agents are Your Neighbor – most agencies are locally owned and community-driven. They are your neighbor, belong to community organizations, have children on the same little league team, and attend the same church. Your coverage is their priority.

  5. Independent Agents are Your Advocate– they offer their help and support when it comes time to actually use your insurance. Dealing with a claim can be a mess. Your independent agents assist you and ensure you are taken care of by the insurance company. When accidents happen, your agent is there.
