The type of insurance agent you choose is important
When looking for local Kennesaw agents, you must know there are a couple different types of agents from which to choose. Kennesaw agents are either independent (non-captive) or captive.
Independent Insurance Agents
Independent agencies do not work for one specific company so they have the ability to put coverage with many different companies and possibly get better coverage at lower prices. If your agent finds better pricing, your agent can switch companies and you don’t have to find a new agent. When shopping rates, you should always include price quotes from several independent insurance agents for maximum quote selection.Many can place coverage with smaller companies which may provide better rates.
The following are independent insurance agents in Kennesaw that may be able to provide price quote information.

Captive Insurance Agents
Captive agencies can only write with one company and some examples include American Family, Liberty Mutual and AAA. These agents are unable to place coverage with different providers so they have to upsell other benefits. These agents are well schooled in insurance sales which helps them sell insurance even at higher premiums. Some people will only choose to use a captive agent mainly due to high brand loyalty and the convenience of having all coverages with one company.

Deciding on an insurance agency shouldn’t rely on just the bottom line cost. Any agent should be forthright in answering these questions:
- Does the agency provide any after hours assistance?
- Can glass repairs be made at your home?
- What insurance company do they write the most business with?
- Is vehicle damage repaired with OEM or aftermarket parts?
- Are there any discounts that you might be missing?
- Who are their largest clients?
Upon getting positive responses to your questions and an affordable coverage quote, chances are good that you have found a car insurance agent that can properly insure your vehicles.
Consider every option when buying coverage
Auto insurance agents are important, but Georgia consumers also have the option to buy from companies direct over the internet. Some companies who sell through the agent channel also give you the option to buy online, and that can save time if finding the best price is important.
If you’re uncomfortable with not having an agent to talk to when buying car insurance direct, this is normal but is quickly overcome. Online companies give you access to trained agents for getting advice on proper coverages. Additionally, most companies also offer 24/7 live help and a car insurance FAQ section to help you make a buying decision.
Does coverage cost less online? It’s hard to say exactly since there are many things that impact your final bill. It would make sense to think that a consumer who buys direct saves money because there is no agent involvement. But the fact is, advertising budgets are huge and that can cost more than having to pay agents.
Keep this in mind
Low-cost car insurance can be sourced online as well as from independent agents in Kennesaw, and you need to comparison shop both to have the best selection. Some insurance providers don’t offer the ability to get a quote online and usually these small, regional companies provide coverage only through local independent agents.
Consumers change insurance companies for any number of reasons including poor customer service, an unsatisfactory settlement offer, extreme rates for teen drivers or lack of trust in their agent. It doesn’t matter what your reason, finding a new car insurance company is pretty easy and you might even save some money in the process.
