What are some benefits of working with a local insurance agent rather than buying insurance online?
We live in a time when just about anything can be purchased on the internet. Buying insurance online has grown more popular with each passing year. Most people who buy insurance online may do so because they believe they are getting the best price, or because they believe that saving time always equates to saving money. While it’s true that some online insurance sites offer a comparison quote, things are not always what they appear. And are you really saving that much time?
If you’ve ever used an online auto insurance quote calculator, you know that they request a very small amount of information to give you a quote. You don’t even know how they arrived at that figure of the quote. Also, you are expected to make some serious decisions about types of coverage, deductibles, and levels of coverage with little or no guidance.
Expert guidance to help you make an informed decision about your insurance needs is only one of the benefits of having a local Florida auto insurance agent. A local agent can help you understand all that information that directly affects your insurance rates. He will work with you, finding the best coverage at the most affordable rate.
Another benefit of working with an independent auto insurance agent is that they will shop multiple companies for you, saving you valuable time and money.
Whether buying an insurance policy or filing a claim, a local Florida auto insurance agent is able to answer your questions, not just ask you questions.
Decisions about insurance coverage affect your family’s financial well-being. Do you really want to trust that to a computer software program, based entirely on information you’ve typed into a 5- question form? A huge benefit is having a one-on-one connection with your own local insurance agent.
If you work with an online agency, chances are that until you file a claim, or the agency makes a mistake of some sort, you will NEVER speak with a human representative. Unless you are a retired insurance agent or have one in your family, you may need help in understanding your policy options. Unfortunately, you may only discover the gaps in your policy when you make an insurance claim. A local insurance agent can forewarn you of any gaps and suggest various options to better protect you.
Your local insurance agent is there to help you. His assistance may come in several ways, from a reminder call when your payment is late, to an annual review of your insurance policy. There is a definite advantage in having a personal relationship with your auto insurance agent. Wouldn’t you feel more comfortable knowing that the person assisting you is already familiar with your specific needs?
Once you establish a close, working relationship with your local Florida Insurance agent, you’ll realize that the benefits are endless. Think about it, won’t you?
