Types of auto insurance agents in Northglenn
When searching for a reliable agent, there are two different types of agents that differ in how they can insure your vehicles. Insurance agencies in Northglenn are categorized either captive or independent (non-captive). Either one can do a good job, but it’s worth learning how they differ because it can impact the selection process.
Independent Agents (or Brokers)
These agents do not work for one specific company so they have the ability to put coverage with many different companies depending on which coverage is best. If your agent finds better pricing, your agent can switch companies and you won’t have to switch agencies.
When comparison shopping, it’s recommended you get quotes from several independent insurance agents for the best price selection.

Selecting an auto insurance agent needs to be determined by more than just the premium amount. Any agent should be forthright in answering these questions:
- How long has their agency been in business in Northglenn?
- Is working in the agency their full-time job?
- How much will you save each year by using a higher deductible?
- Which company do they place the most coverage with?
- Can glass repairs be made at your home?
Once you have received answers to your satisfaction and a good coverage price, most likely you have located an insurance agent that will service your policy.
Have you considered online alternatives?
Insurance agencies are perfect for certain consumers, but you can also find affordable Colorado auto insurance from online companies direct. Some companies like State Farm and Allstate that sell primarily through agents also allow you to buy direct on their websites, and that can save time if you prefer to buy online.
If you’re apprehensive about not having an agent to talk to when buying direct, this really isn’t an issue. Auto insurance companies that require consumers to choose their own coverages give you access to trained agents for customer questions.
Can you find lower rates online? Whether or not you’ll save is impossible to say because there are many components that impact your premium. Some people think that shopping direct lowers rates due to not having any agent compensation. In reality, marketing their products costs a lot of money and those expenses can offset most of the savings by selling direct.

More comparisons equals lower rates

When you buy insurance online, do not reduce needed coverages to save money. In too many instances, an insured dropped physical damage coverage only to regret at claim time they didn’t have enough coverage. The ultimate goal is to get the best coverage possible at an affordable rate while still protecting your assets.
