When it comes to buying insurance, you’ll hear all kinds of promises about low prices and great service by Insurance Company XYZ without ever talking to a live person.
You may actually get great service when you’re preparing to give them your money for six months of insurance premiums. That 15-minute phone call may even save you 15 percent on your insurance over some of the better-known companies in the industry.
Where, exactly, does that 15 percent come from? What do you have to give up in order to achieve those great savings?
What Should You Look for When Choosing an Insurance Agent?
Consider buying insurance an investment in your family’s future. No one buys insurance for their homes or automobiles with plans or expectations to cash in those policies.
You never want to find yourself in a position where you need to take advantage of your insurance. However, if you ever find yourself in need of it, you want to trust that you have the best possible coverage your money could buy.
This means you need to work with someone who has the following:
- A reputation for honesty.
- A long history of experience in your community.
- The lay of the local landscape.
These things may seem a bit over the top but when you’re buying insurance for your home in the heart of the Siberian Express you do not want to work with an insurance agent in Miami who has never seen a snowflake and doesn’t understand what millions of those tiny things can do to a roof, tree limbs, or roads.
Why Choose a Neighborhood Agent?
In addition to knowing the lay of the land, locally speaking, a neighborhood agent is also part of the community. He does his shopping and attends church in your community. His kids play little league baseball or hockey in the same league your kids play in.
He’s part of the community where you live so he has a vested interest in doing right by all of his customers. Finally, he’s there when you need him. He’s not three thousand miles away when Mother Nature stops playing nice with your house or when someone drives through your bay window. He’s right down the road and accessible to you when you need him most.
