Thanks to technology, most of the information we need today is instantly accessible. From food to equipment to local service providers, you can find virtually anything you need at the touch of a button. But when it comes to your insurance agent, do you feel you can reach out to him/her whenever you need to? This is one problem you shouldn’t need to worry about.
Why Do You Have an Insurance Agent?
Not many people understand the concept behind the traditional insurance agent. They think that by going through an agency, they’ll get different rates than they would see on a search engine. While you might be right, it’s probably not for the reason(s) you’d think. Typically, the pricing is the same, whether or not you purchase your insurance policy through an agent. Here in Carroll County, that’s no exception. The agents just have access to more rates and providers than you normally would—especially if you work with a brokerage like Freedom Insurance Agency.
As an added benefit of working with an agency though, you get additional service on your side. From browsing rates to explaining policy inclusions and even helping you file claims, the right insurance agent will be on your side. Don’t worry about having to pay more; worry about getting more out of your policy!
Why Not Stay Local?
The local movement is on the rise when it comes to food and other goods, but it’s a great approach for choosing an insurance agent, too. Those that live, work, and drive within your area each day understand your needs a little more. Then they can make recommendations based on this insider information. This is especially important when it comes to auto insurance, which can vary drastically from state to state. Trust your Maryland insurance needs to an agency that works with these requirements every day!
With local agents, it’s also an easier matter to communicate. While sending and receiving documents electronically has become the norm, sometimes you just need to drop off or pick up paperwork. If it comes to that, wouldn’t you rather drive down the street instead of going out of your way?
