Why an Independent Agent?

When shopping for insurance, most people are unaware that there are different kinds of agents they can work with. Choosing the right kind of insurance agent can make a big difference in securing the best combination of price and value.

With a captive insurance agent you only get the guidance of one company that sells one brand of insurance. An example of a captive brand or insurance agent would be State Farm, All State, Nationwide, Farmers, American Family, etc. With an independent insurance agent, you might get up to eight choices.

This is because an independent insurance agent like the, Columbus Insurance Market, represents multiple brands, and can compare coverage and prices to find the best possible value for your individual circumstances. Independent agents are usually vested members of your community who are committed to doing business face-to-face and being your advocate in times of need.

They also:

  • Work for you when you have a claim.
  • Are not beholden to any one company. This means you don’t have to change agencies as your insurance and service needs change.
  • Are your consultants, working with you as you determine your needs.
  • Are value-hunters who look after your pocketbook in finding the best combination of price, coverage, and service.
  • Offer one-stop shopping for a full range of products, including home, renters, auto, business, life, health, and retirement plans.
  • Can periodically review your coverage to keep up with your changing insurance needs.
  • Are committed to customer satisfaction—it's the key to their livelihood
  • Treat you like a person, not a number.
  • Are licensed professionals with strong customer and community ties.
Choose your insurance agent wisely if you want to make sure you are getting the best deal for your money.  I would always make sure your insurance agent is an independent insurance agent.
