5 Reasons You Should Use an Independent Agent for All Lines of Business

By Amy Laposha

Insurance is one of those services that you need to protect you, your family, your home, and your personal belongings in the event of some unforeseen incident. There are many reasons you as a customer can benefit from using an independent agent to help guide you through the insurance process. Here are 5 of my favorite reasons you should use an independent agent:

  1. One Stop Shop: One big advantage is your agent can give you multiple quotes for many products such as homeowners, auto, life, umbrella and commercial lines. You only have to give your information once and your agent will shop for you with many carriers, comparing and giving you options.

  2. Personalized Customer Service: After evaluating your insurance needs, your agent will find a company that customizes your coverages that best suits you and your family. They will assess and personalize your coverage, helping you understand your insurance in simple terms.

  3. Build a strong, long time relationship with your agent: Your independent agent represents YOU, the customer, instead of the insurance carrier and is looking out for YOUR best interests. You are able to keep your agent even if you choose to change carriers.

  4. Licensed Professionals: Independent agents are licensed experts who are legally obligated to be ethical and are knowledgeable about the many products they sell.

  5. They are your advocate: If you have a billing, claim, or coverage concern, your agent can be your advocate with the insurance carrier working on your behalf and getting answers for you.

So when you are in the market to purchase insurance, having the guidance of a trusted independent insurance agent will give you the peace of mind you need in every stage of your life. Are you ready to buy insurance? Our team is ready to assist you. Contact us today!
