The Convenience of One Contact Point
Any insurance agent can sell you a policy, but an independent agent can assess your needs and customize a package of insurance policies that will keep you protected.
In other words, knowing what health insurance you have might help an agent determine if an accident policy, supplemental health plan, or a critical illness policy will help you fill gaps in your health coverage. Buying your auto insurance and homeowner’s insurance policies from the same company/agent will likely qualify you for a multi-policy discount.
When you need help with the servicing of your policy(s), instead of dealing with four or five companies’ customer service departments, an independent agent who handles all of your insurance can serve as your point of contact for every policy.
Shop Multiple Companies in One Stop
Independent agents are able to access products through a variety of insurance companies in your local market. They can shop the market for you, and find you the best value for a policy that fits your needs. The alternative is shopping the market yourself, giving your contact information to multiple agents, only to end up purchasing one of the quoted policies.
Using an Agent Doesn’t Cost You Anything Extra
Personal service isn’t usually free, but it typically doesn’t cost you extra to buy your policies through an independent agent. The insurance companies pay your agent a commission to sell and service your policies, because agents are taking over the workload so they don’t have to.
There are many advantages to using an independent agent to help you with your insurance needs. Having one contact person who knows your full insurance situation, being able to explore multiple companies with one inquiry, and taking advantage of a service that doesn’t cost you anything extra makes using an agent a convenient, and effective way to obtain and manage your insurance policies.
