Advantages of a Local Insurance Agent

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When it comes time to file a claim on your insurance, what is the process for you? Do you dial some office 1000 miles away, go through several menu options, and hope you get someone on the line who can help you with your claim?

Why not use a local insurance agent instead? Establishing a relationship with a local insurance agent who is part of your community, and dealing with someone who knows you personally makes all the difference when catastrophe strikes. And it’s just a comfortable feeling dealing with someone you know and someone who knows you in a time of crisis.

Your local agent also understands the risks and the coverage needs in your specific area. This allows them to help you get the right coverage and type of insurance you need rather than a cookie cutter version of what someone thinks you may need.

Another huge advantage to doing business with a local insurance agent is the review. Your local agent will take the time to sit down with you and review all your insurance coverage to make sure you know what’s covered and what’s not covered so you have just the right amount of coverage
for your particular situation.

When you have a claim, local contractors are used to meet with you and make sure you get your money quickly by writing you a check on the spot. These are people who have been a part of your community and generally know you personally.

Your local insurance agent and local contractors are your allies and partners who work with you to make sure you are taken care of both before and after catastrophe strikes. They are just around the block when you need to go to their office and talk to someone face-to-face. Doesn’t this beat making a lot of phone calls and going through a dozen menu options to talk to someone you
don’t know hoping they may help you?
