Why Choose an Independent Insurance Agency? 6 Reasons to Save Money and Get Better Coverage

If you’re looking for the best possible insurance coverage at the lowest possible price, you should choose an independent insurance agency. Here are six reasons why:

  1. Independent agencies can offer policies from multiple companies. This gives you the power to compare rates and coverage options from different insurers. Captive agents can only offer policies from the company they’re affiliated with, so you don’t have the same flexibility.
  2. Independent agents work for you. They’re not tied to any one insurance company, so they’re free to shop around for the best policy for your needs. Captive agents, on the other hand, are incentivized to sell you policies from their own company, even if it’s not the best option for you.
  3. Independent agencies can save you money. Because they have access to multiple insurers, independent agents can often negotiate better rates for their clients. Captive agents typically don’t have the same leverage.
  4. Independent agents are qualified to review policies from any company. They have the expertise to help you understand the different coverage options available and choose the policy that’s right for you. Captive agents may only be familiar with the policies offered by their own company.
  5. Independent agents do the shopping for you. You don’t have to contact multiple insurers to compare rates and coverage. Independent agents can do all the work for you, so you can save time and hassle.
  6. Independent agencies offer an extensive range of protection. They can help you protect your home, auto, health, life, and business needs. Captive agents may only offer a limited range of products.

If you’re serious about getting the best possible insurance coverage at the lowest possible price, contact an independent insurance agency today. We’ll work with you to find the perfect policy for your needs and budget.
