The value of an independent insurance agent
Did you know that there’s a big difference among insurance agents — one that can have a significant impact on how much you pay for your insurance coverage and the type of service you receive? It’s true. While so-called ‘captive’ insurance agents typically represent only one insurance company, ‘independent’ insurance agents represent a number of different companies, offering one-stop shopping for a wider choice of policies for you and your business.
Because an independent agent represents a variety of insurance companies, they can help you shop around with competing carriers. With one stop, you can compare the cost and coverages offered by several different companies to see which has the option that’s best for you. That’s the best way to find the most cost-effective coverage.
