Why You Need an Independent Insurance Agency, Rather than just an Online Policy

Category: Agency News & Info.

Everyone looks to save money where they can. It’s a fact of life, especially in today’s economy. However, it’s wise to remember the adage that tells us that if you buy only for price, you buy twice. In plain English, that means that if you go with the cheapest option, you will probably need to replace it with something better, at some time down the road.

If you shop for insurance online, what is supposed to be a quick and easy decision may just as easily become a waste of time. Insurance shopping does not need to be difficult. There are so many options available, and they are not always well explained online. Speaking with an independent insurance agency, you can get a policy custom-tailored to your individual needs, just by answering a few questions.

Many people who buy online to save money discover that they should have spent just a bit more – or even the same price – to get personal service. Is it worth a bit more to have a local agent you can call, whenever you need him or her? Morris Templeton has been serving Georgia and the Southeast US for years and they are ready to answer your policy questions whenever you have them.

The type of online agency you may be considering is probably going to be restricted to one specific brand of insurance. The good news is that an independent insurance agency will be able to weigh up the pros and cons of different brands to provide you with a number of options. Each brand will have different variables to consider and likely will have different rates. It’s good for you to have a choice when it comes to selecting your coverage.

You can be assured that an independent agent is likely to be able to offer you the very best in terms of coverage, service and pricing options. You may be hard-pressed to say that when it comes to an “online only” agency that appears to be so much of a better deal.

If you are unsure of the options available, you may benefit from speaking on the phone, or in person, with an agent, who can discuss your priorities and needs. If you are more comfortable with real customer service from someone who answers the phone when you call, you may want to look into purchasing insurance from an agent.
