We have to make several important decisions about relationships in or lives. We need to choose realtors to help find our house, accountants to help with financial matters and insurance agents to help protect what matters most. While some come and go, insurance agents are there for the long haul, always ready to lend a hand when disaster has made you confront worst-case scenarios.
When you choose an insurance agent you need to find someone who you feel comfortable with and will work with you to find the right coverage for your needs. Consider the following questions when choosing an insurance agent.
Experience: When it comes to protecting your home, car or business you want to work with someone who has experience in handling claims, consulting on services and ensuring your needs are met. There can be a lot of details involved in insurance policies and it helps to know the agent you are working with is experienced enough to find the best combination of price, coverage and service.
Community Ties: Working with a local independent insurance agent gives you someone in the community who will know if you need additional or special coverage. Having someone who knows your neighborhood can help you make the right decisions about your homeowners and car insurance and in some cases save you money.
Availability: Most of the time you don't speak to your insurance agent. But when you need to, it is important that your representative is available and doesn't leave you waiting. Being in a car accident or coming to home to find a branch has crashed through your roof of your home can ruin anyone's day. It helps to know your insurance agent is available to help you through these tough times and answer any questions you have about filing a claim.
Make sure you take your time choosing an insurance agent. Your home, car and family are too valuable to trust with just anyone.
