Insurance agencies in Cody come in two varieties

When looking for a reputable insurance agent or broker, there are a couple of types of agencies that differ in how they can insure your vehicles. Insurance agencies in Cody are classified as either independent (non-captive) or captive. Either one can write coverage properly, but it’s worth learning the differences since it can impact the type of agent you choose

Captive Agents

Captive insurance agents are contracted to one company like AAA, State Farm, Farmers Insurance and Allstate. Captives cannot place coverage with different providers so always compare other rates. Captive agents are well schooled on the products they sell which can be an advantage. Consumers often buy insurance from these agents partially due to the brand legacy and the convenience of having all coverages with one company.

Shown below are Cody captive insurance agencies who may provide you with price quotes.

  • Farm Bureau Insurance – 1308 Rumsey Ave – Cody, WY 82414 – (307) 587-9669

  • Farmers Insurance Group – 1725 Sheridan Ave – Cody, WY 82414 – (307) 587-2808
Independent Agents

These agents are not employed by any specific company so they can insure your vehicles with any number of different companies and potentially find a lower price. To transfer your coverage to a different company, the agent simply finds a different carrier without you having to go to a different agency. When searching for an agent, it’s recommended you get quotes from at a minimum one independent agency to have the most options to choose from.Many can place coverage with lesser-known insurance companies which may provide better rates.

Include online companies when price shopping

Insurance agents are indespensible for some people, but you also have the option of buying Wyoming car insurance direct from companies that only sell online. Even companies, such as State Farm, Allstate and Farmers, who employ agents additionally provide the ability to get quotes and purchase online, and that can save time if you are the do-it-yourself type.

If you’re concerned about selecting your own policy coverages when buying direct, don’t sweat it. All companies that require consumers to choose their own coverages provide toll-free numbers you can use to get advice on coverages.

Does coverage cost less online? Whether or not you’ll save is impossible to say because there are so many things that determine your policy premium. Common sense would say that buying direct cuts out the middleman. For most companies selling online, however, it’s expensive to advertise so the lack of a commission may be a wash.

Smart shoppers get results

Insureds switch companies for many reasons like being labeled a high risk driver, denial of a claim, delays in paying claims and even extreme rates for teen drivers. No matter why you want to switch, choosing a new company is not as hard as you think.

Low-cost car insurance is available online and also from your neighborhood Cody agents, and you should be comparing both in order to have the best chance of saving money.
