Types of auto insurance agents in Kaysville
When finding an insurance agent, there are a couple of types of insurance agents that you can select. Agents are either captive or independent (non-captive).
Independent Agencies or Brokers
Independent agents do not work for one specific company but instead can place your coverage with multiple insurance companies and potentially find a lower price. If your agent finds better pricing, the agent simply finds a different carrier and you don’t have to find a new agent.
When shopping rates, you should always include price quotes from at least one independent agent for maximum quote selection. They also have the ability to place coverage with smaller companies which can be an advantage.
Listed below is a list of independent insurance agents in Kaysville that can give you comparison quotes.
- Craig Insurance – 497 N Main St – Kaysville, UT 84037 – (801) 446-8811
- Ray Werner Insurance Inc – 346 N Main St – Kaysville, UT 84037 – (801) 546-2966
Captive Insurance Agents
Captive agencies have only one company to place business with such as Farmers Insurance, American Family, State Farm and Allstate. These agents are not able to provide prices from multiple companies so they have to upsell other benefits. They are trained well on their products and sales techniques and that can be a competitive advantage. Some consumers prefer to buy from captive agents primarily because of the prominence of the brand and strong financial ratings.
Listed below are Kaysville captive agencies who can help you get price quotes.
- Farmers Insurance Group – 459 N 300 W # 14 – Kaysville, UT 84037 – (801) 529-1208
- Allstate Insurance – 1 N Main St – Kaysville, UT 84037 – (801) 544-7922

Choosing an auto insurance agent requires more thought than just a low price. Ask your prospective agent these questions:
- How many years of experience in personal lines insurance coverages do they have?
- Are you getting all the discounts the company offers?
- How long has their agency been open in Kaysville?
- Do they receive special compensation for putting your coverage with one company over another?
- How much will you save each year by using a higher deductible?
- Is the agency involved in supporting local community causes?
- Which company do they place the most coverage with?
Once you have received answers to your satisfaction to all your questions in addition to an acceptable price estimate, it’s possible that you found an auto insurance agent that can adequately provide car insurance.
The online alternatives
Insurance agencies are important, but Utah drivers can also buy from companies direct over the internet. Certain companies who employ agents also let you buy online. This is something to consider.
If you’re anxious about whether or not you’ll have guidance when buying online, that is quite common when buying online the first time. Car insurance companies have customer service departments to walk you through the process. They also have online education and live help anytime you can access prior to buying.
Is auto insurance cheaper online? That is a tough question to answer since there are many things that determine the price you pay. Many people think that a consumer who buys direct reduces premiums because there is no agent. For most online online companies, however, the cost of constant advertising is expensive so this can offset any savings.
More quotes mean more savings
When shopping online for car insurance, make sure you don’t skimp on coverage in order to save money. In too many instances, someone dropped liability coverage limits and learned later that saving that couple of dollars actually costed them tens of thousands. The ultimate goal is to find the BEST coverage for the lowest price while not skimping on critical coverages.
Cost effective car insurance is definitely available from both online companies and with local Kaysville insurance agents, and you need to price shop both in order to have the best price selection to choose from. A few companies do not offer the ability to get a quote online and these small, regional companies work with independent agents.
