How Local Independent Insurance Agencies Provide Value To You

April 25, 2022

When it comes to auto and home insurance, people often think, “Do I really need insurance?” or, “I haven’t needed to use my insurance, so why do I have to keep paying these companies for it?” The reality is you’re actually lucky if you haven’t used your insurance – You buy it hoping you never have to use it. When you do need to use your insurance, it’s important that your policy includes the proper coverage and your insurance company or agent takes considerable care of you.

If an unforeseen accident happens, you need the right insurance. An independent insurance agent is like having a teammate who cares about you and your insurance needs regardless of the situation. It means that you have an advocate ‘in your corner’ that will ensure you recover from your losses. In a time of uncertainty, it can be very frustrating calling an 800 number and not knowing the name of the person on the phone, if they’re even going to answer your call, or if they will contact you if you leave a message for them. It’s priceless when you’re able to call someone that you trust and they can help you through the process of an insurance claim.
