What’s the difference between an independent agent and other kinds of insurance agents?
The difference is simple, and it can make a huge impact on the quality and affordability of the types of insurance offered to you. In a nutshell, independent agents partner with many insurance companies, shopping around on your behalf for the best coverage that fits your needs.
Other insurance agents are often called captive agents. This is because they only work for one insurance company, and can only offer you options from that one provider. What if that one provider doesn’t adequately protect your family or business? Too bad, a captive agent is contractually obligated to only sell insurance from one company.
The local independent agents at Advanced Insurance are your advocates—we represent your needs to the insurance companies. We tailor a solution based on the information you provide us, and being independent allows us to work on behalf of the client.
