Choosing an insurance agency should depend on more than just the premium amount. These are valid questions to ask:
- Does the agency support the community they serve?
- Who are their largest clients?
- If your car is in the repair shop, do you have coverage for a rental car?
- Which insurance companies are they affiliated with?
- Are glass claims handled on-site or do you have to take your vehicle to a repair shop?
- How many years of experience in personal lines insurance coverages do they have?
Upon getting reasonable responses to these questions and a low price estimate, you may have just found an insurance agent that is a good match to properly insure your vehicles.
Isn’t it cheaper to buy direct from companies like Geico and Progressive?
Car insurance agents are a valuable resource, but Wisconsin drivers can also buy from companies direct over the internet. Certain auto insurance companies, such as Farmers Insurance and State Farm, who have local Sheboygan agents also give you the ability to buy a policy online, and online price comparisons are easy if you’re trying to lower your rates.
If you’re uneasy about whether or not you’ll have guidance when buying online, this is a normal reaction for first-time shoppers. Online companies all have client service departments to help you decide which coverages are appropriate. You may also access a frequently asked questions page that you can use before buying.
If you’re trying to save the most money, the best approach to discovering where you can get the lowest rate, either online or from agents, is getting rates for as many of both types of providers as possible. It’s even possible to receive different pricing from online quotes as they do from local agents from the same company. It’s difficult to tell if the lower rates are from agents or online until after comparing identical coverage quotes using both methods.
Do people save by buying online? Many people swear by it, but it’s difficult to answer due to the fact that there are multiple individual factors that impact your final bill. Common logic is that purchasing direct online saves money because there is no agent involvement. For most companies selling online, however, getting their brand in front of customers is expensive and that can cost more than having to pay agents.
Buy online or local, you save
Drivers change insurance companies for a variety of reasons including policy non-renewal, policy cancellation, delays in responding to claim requests and high prices. Whatever your reason, switching auto insurance companies is easier than you think.
As you shop your coverage around, it’s a bad idea to reduce coverage to reduce premium. There have been many situations where an insured cut liability coverage limits only to discover later that the small savings ended up costing them much more. Your goal should be to get the best coverage possible at the best price while still protecting your assets.
