Advantages of Getting Insurance Through an Independent Agency

When it comes to insurance, things can get complicated pretty quickly. An independent insurance agent can help you cut through the chaos of different policies and carriers to find the right coverage for your unique situation — all at no extra cost.

How do they do it?

Have More Choices Without Large Company Bias
An independent insurance agent isn’t affiliated with a specific insurance provider. This means they don’t have any ulterior motives when selling you a policy —  their advice is genuine and unbiased, so you get the most accurate information possible.

They’re also able to present you a wider range of options from the get-go because they aren’t limited to the policies offered by any single carrier. While independent agents get paid commission for brokering larger insurance companies, at the end of the day, you are your agent’s boss.

Shop Around for the Best Possible Deal
Because they aren’t restricted by any particular carrier’s policy options, an independent insurance agent has the freedom to shop around to find the most complete and reasonably priced coverage for you and your family.

This means you can treat your agent like a one-stop shop: you present your situation and they do the heavy lifting to figure out the best ways to meet your needs. Whether you’re looking for home insurance, auto insurance, life insurance, or more, your independent agent is there for it all — no need to worry about coordinating multiple point people.

Keep the Same Insurance Consultant for Life
Another great thing about working with an independent insurance agent is that you can maintain your relationship with them even if you switch carriers. As you meet face-to-face, you’ll get to know each other and be able to trust their recommendations for years to come.

Independent agents are committed to building a personal relationship with each client. They see you as more than just a number in a spreadsheet — they take time to learn about your family, goals, and values. As your life situation changes, they’ll evolve with you to continue providing personalized guidance, all in the comfort of your hometown.
