When buying car insurance, you have two options: you can go through an independent agent or purchase insurance directly from an insurance company online. There are several advantages to buying from an independent agent.
If you buy insurance through an agent, you will have someone who can help you find the best coverage and rates after looking at several companies.
If you need to file a claim after an auto accident, an independent agent will work with you to expedite the process. He or she will work on your behalf to get the money you deserve from the insurance company. You can get personalized service that is not possible when dealing directly with an insurance company.
Some people choose to buy insurance directly from a company because they think it will help them save money. However, in some cases it is less expensive to buy from an independent agent. He or she can compare rates from several companies and help you find the best policy for your budget.
Buying insurance directly from an insurance company online is not always faster than going through an independent agent. If you request quotes from several companies online, you will have to enter your information on each website. If you go through an agent, you will only need to provide your information once.
The downside of buying insurance directly from a company is that you will not have a personal agent to help if you need to file a claim. You will call a customer service center and will speak to someone who may be less experienced and may be processing many claims. You may speak to a different person each time you call. If you buy insurance from an independent agent, the same person will help you with all of your insurance needs.
