You may not know that there are several ways to buy insurance, such as through captive agents or telephone representatives, both of whom only sell insurance from one insurance company. Unlike these sources, independent agents represent, on average, eight different insurance carriers and research these firms to find you the best combination of price, coverage, and service.

- Assists you when you have a claim;
- Is your consultant, working with you to help explain the different types of insurance and determining your unique needs;
- Offers you a choice of insurance plans and programs;

- Offers one-stop shopping for a full range of products, such as home, renters, auto, and business insurance; and
- Can periodically review your coverage to keep it current.
