Benefits of Having an Independent Insurance Agent

Updated: Nov 2, 2020

Using an independent insurance agency has many benefits when compared to getting your insurance directly through a company website or by a single-company (also known as "captive") agent. Read on to learn how having an independent insurance agent can help you.

  • Tracking your policies is easier. Even if you have policies spread over different companies, an independent agent will have access to them all so there's no confusion. Having all your policies in one place, from personal auto to your business, means making changes and payments will be less time consuming.

  • Agents do the legwork for you. We quote through multiple companies at once to find you the best coverage at an affordable rate.

  • You get a real person, every time. There's no listening to the dragged out process of of "Press 1 for customer service..."

We take the time to get to know you, your family, and your insurance needs on a personal basis.
