There are a few reasons why people might choose a local insurance company over an internet-based service:
- Personalized service: Local insurance companies may offer more personalized service, as they often have a smaller customer base and may be more able to give individualized attention to policyholders.
- Convenience: Local insurance companies may be more convenient, as you can usually visit their offices in person if you have questions or need to file a claim.
- Community involvement: Local insurance companies may be more invested in the local community, as they are part of it. This may make them more responsive to the needs of their policyholders and more willing to give back to the community.
- Trust: Some people may feel more comfortable working with a local insurance company that they can meet in person, rather than an internet-based service that they cannot physically visit.
- Security: Having an agency on your side ensures the best outcome for both the insured and the insurer. We act as your advocate and want the best possible outcome for our clients and it is also in the best interest of the insurance company to keep our customers happy, since we’re bringing the business to them.
That being said, internet-based insurance services can also have their own advantages, such as lower prices, greater flexibility, and more convenient online tools. It’s important to consider all of your options and choose the one that best meets your needs.
