How is an Independent Insurance Agency Different From a Big-Name Provider?

You’ve probably heard that Lindow is an independent insurance agency. We couldn’t be more proud of our commitment to finding our clients the best possible rates on their insurance policies — but you might be wondering exactly what makes us so different from our big-name carrier counterparts.

Here’s the lowdown on three key traits of independent insurance agencies!

Independent insurance agencies aren’t biased

Independent insurance agencies don’t have an affiliation with any specific insurance provider. Because our agents don’t work for the big-name companies providing your policies, we aren’t biased — instead, we’re able to provide you with the accurate information you need to make informed decisions about your family’s coverage.

We act as a broker, or middleman, between our insurance carriers and our clients, keeping your best interests as our top priority. We get paid commission directly from the more than 40 insurance companies we offer policies from, so you won’t pay an extra penny for working with us.

At the end of the day, it doesn’t make a difference to us if you get your home or auto insurance policies through Progressive, Travelers, or someone else entirely. What we do care about? That you have the right coverage — at the right price — to keep your life goals on track. We have the unique ability to shop around from hundreds of different insurance policies to select the one that’s just right for your family.

Independent insurance agencies take advantage of strength in numbers

Independent insurance agencies can partner together in insurance groups, like American Advantage Insurance Group, to provide a greater variety of carriers and packages to our clients. By banding together, we take advantage of strength in numbers without compromising our personal customer care.

It’s an exercise in teamwork and maintaining priorities. We not only want to offer you the best possible policy coverage and premium rate — we want to do it with the one-on-one attention and compassion you deserve.

Independent insurance agencies are small enough to get to know your family

At Lindow, we love getting to know our clients. Because we’re able to work with other independent agencies under the American Advantage Insurance Group umbrella, we reap the benefits of large policy numbers without selling out to become a massive company ourselves. This allows us to provide the best customer service in the industry.

A majority of our agents live in the Milwaukee area right alongside our clients — we understand your unique struggles, and we’re here for you every step of the way. It’s our mission to work with you throughout all of life’s seasons and chaotic changes.
