How to choose the best Insurance Agent in Indiana
If you’ve ever asked yourself how in the world do I find the best insurance agent then you might want to read this. So, how do you choose the best Insurance Agent and how can you tell if they’re giving you the best service available? Great question.
First, let me ask you this. What’s most important to you? Is it the brand, price, coverage, customer experience or something else? What type of relationship do you have with your current agent? Do they check in with you on a yearly basis? Have they ever called to see if they can save you any money with discounts that might apply?
When contacting your agent did you need to leave a message because you were calling outside their normal business hours? Then was it a few days before you were gotten back to? Can you text your current Insurance Agent?
“I believe to be considered the best you need to be accessible to your clients, service builds trust.”
Seeing how accessible an agent is in the beginning phase when getting your quote can be a good indicator on how you’ll be treated in the future. If they’re hard to reach and get information from then that’s a good chance that’s the lack of service you’ll get as a signed client.
In today’s world with technology and smartphones your Insurance Agent should only be a few clicks away. If you can’t text your agent then you’re not getting the best possible customer experience available.
How many choices does your current agent have to offer you? At a captive agency, one that typically only sells one “brand” of insurance. They can only lower the price by taking coverage away from you or raising your out of pocket expense on deductibles if there’s ever a claim.
An independent insurance agency that has many carriers to choose from, works for you to find the best coverage at the right price. With no pressure or hassle, the best agent finds the coverage you need and gives the service you deserve. That’s what you can expect from me.
