Benefits of Choosing an Independent Insurance Agent
Generic insurance can cover you up to a point, but eventually, you’ll have a loss that isn’t covered. That’s why independent agents take the time to fully assess your actual risks and design coverages to meet your unique needs. Investing a few minutes upfront can save you thousands of dollars and buckets of stress when something happens to your home or car.
When you need help, there’s nothing like working with someone you know. Virginia’s independent agents live and work right here in your community. They know the region, the risks, and they routinely go above and beyond because that’s what small business owners do.
While most claims are resolved within a few days, some require extra attention. Having a local agent on your side helps keep the process moving and ensures your interests are protected. They know the process, the insurance company, as well as the repair shops and contractors who can help you get back to normal.
Your independent agent gives you access to several insurance companies so you can evaluate which offer the best coverage and the best price. As your advisor, an agent will help you find discounts and other ways to save that can add up to hundreds of dollars per year.
