Nearly half the respondents to a recent nationwide telephone survey said independent agents offer major advantages over captive agents. The study found that consumers believe independent agents are considered to be better than captive agents at offering good value for the money, being dedicated to providing superior products and services, responding to changes in their needs, charging reasonable premiums and having their best interest in mind when making recommendations.
Some people think it doesn't really matter where they buy their insurance. But this misconception could be costing them money, service and protection. Buying insurance isn't like buying bread or milk. Insurance is an important safety net for your family, your home, your car or your business. Don't treat the purchase lightly!
There IS a difference in where you buy your protection. Many people don't realize there are three sources for insurance:
1. Captive Agents, who can sell you the insurance of only one company.
2. Telephone Representatives, who can offer you the insurance of one company, and only on the telephone.
3. Independent Insurance Agents, who represent an average of 8 insurance companies, and research with those firms to find you the best combination of price, coverage and service.
Unlike the other agents, your Independent Insurance Agent is not beholden to any one company, thus, you don't need to change agencies as your insurance and service needs change.
He can work with you to determine your needs and he can assist you when you have a claim.
He offers you a choice of insurance plans and programs and he is a value hunter who looks after your pocketbook in finding the best combination of price, coverage and service.
He offers one-stop shopping for a full range of products - home, renters, auto, business, life, health and disability.
He treats you like a real person, not just another number.
Customer satisfaction is the key to an independent agent's livelihood so serving you is your independent agent's most-important concern.
