3 Reasons to Break-up with Your Captive Insurance Agent for an Independent One

You should have an independent agent. Perhaps like most people you fell hook-line-and-sinker for your local State Farm agent’s sweet-talk. You couldn’t get them off your mind since everywhere you turned they were there, like a good neighbor. Or maybe it was Allstate. You just loved the thought of being in good hands. Well, we hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you can do better. You deserve better.

Here are 3 reasons why it’s time to break up with that captive agent, and start a new relationship with an independent agent.

1. Your needs come first.

An independent agent works for you, not any one carrier, so your needs are the priority. The independent agent has access to multiple insurance carriers with many coverage options. This type of agent is able to listen to your specific needs, and find the carrier that is a perfect fit.

2. The focus is on you.

Because the independent agent can match coverage to your needs instead of one carrier’s limitations, you are the focus. This means as you grow and your risks change, your agent can make sure you stay protected. You are far less likely to be under-insured and vulnerable when you are in the care of an independent agent.

3. You can call anytime.

The beauty of a relationship like this is that your agent is always just a phone call, email, text, message, tweet, wall post, or personal visit away. As with any relationship, you’ll want to find someone you can trust {shameless plug}.

Breaking up can be hard to do, but it’s always easier when you have a new relationship all lined up. Don’t settle for that captive agency any longer, get in touch with an independent agent today.
