Why Independent Insurance Agents Are Better
There may be several reasons you are searching for an independent insurance agent. Two of the most common reasons are having unique insurance needs and looking for lower rates. Depending on your needs, an independent agent may be the right move. Our independent agents at Slyman Insurance Group in Gahanna, Ohio, are here to help you navigate your coverage options.
What Is an Independent Agent?
An independent agent differs from a captive agent because they can sell from multiple insurance companies to find you the best coverage in the area. A captive agent can sell only their company’s product. If you have specific coverage needs, you should consider an independent agent.
What Are the Benefits of an Independent Agent?
Independent insurance agents can offer more options for meeting your coverage needs. The following are a few reasons why an independent agent may be a better fit for you:
An independent agent can provide multiple quotes. Multiple quotes can help you compare premiums rates with your agent acting as one point of contact instead of contacting multiple insurance companies.
An independent agent will communicate directly with your insurer. Since they work for you, they will provide the best possible service to keep your business.
An independent agent can stay with you if you switch providers. When your policy comes up for renewal, your agent can help you shop for better rates to help determine whether or not you should change companies or stay with your current provider.
Independent agents typically work with smaller-sized companies. Your agent may present you with a quote from a smaller company that can still meet your coverage needs at a reasonable rate.
