How Independent Agents Adds Value
When you think of insurance agents what do you think of? Do you get that stereotypically negative feeling that is common among many people. What you may not think of are words like savings, personal relationships, your best interests, and (most of all) importance. These are words to describe independent agents.
There are a couple of different types of insurance agents. One of these being captive agents and the other being independent agents.
Let’s take a look at the differences between the two of these through a hypothetical.
So you have just moved out of your parents’ house and are looking for auto and renters insurance. You reach out to a captive agent at Progressive, we’ll call her Flo, and an independent agent at CRG Services.
Flo comes back with a quote from her only option, Progressive, while the agent from CRG brings you back several quotes from different companies. Three of the four quotes the agent at CRG ran were a better price than Flo’s only quote.
Along with the better price, the agent at CRG takes the time to walk you through what is covered and makes a recommendation for which quote to go with. You decide to go with the expertise of the independent agent from CRG.
Independent agents have the benefit of shopping around and comparing prices/coverage for you to find the best option for your needs and budget.
What sets us apart
At CRG we do business with 15 different and competitive insurance companies. Each company has been selected for the quality of insurance they provide, as well as the markets they provide the best coverage and price for.
Because of this, when we are contacted to get someone a quote, we have the benefit of getting the most competitive quote for the coverage selected.
So instead of blindly searching for the right insurance, contact an independent agent to guide you through the process.
It’s more than cost
Protecting what matters most to you is something we take very seriously at CRG.
Our agents are here to fight for you on any claims or any other issues that come up. Having an agent you can trust and who you have a personal relationship with is important and can give a unique feeling of security.
We have your back
Independent agents represent the customer’s best interests, not the insurance company’s. While a lot of this post has been centered around saving money, insurance agents know the balance between saving the customer money and not cutting corners.
Insurance agents have a negative reputation gained from misinformed opinions. In reality, it is the exact opposite.
Having a trustworthy representative who is on your side is attractive to people, which is why CRG has been able to be so successful over the years.
From all of us at CRG, we thank you for your continued business and look forward to many more years to come.
If you have a family member, friend, or colleague who could benefit from the services of an independent agent, please, forward this to them!
