Reading, Pennsylvania. August 31, 2006. Insurance agents are not sneaky, manipulative middlemen out to take all your hard-earned money, or intimidating bogeymen trying to scare you into buying products you don't need. On the contrary, they are people just like you and me. They just happen to know more about something that most of us don't understand - insurance. One website, InsureMyVehicle.com, realizes the internet is threatening the extinction of insurance agents and is quick to point out that insurance agents are not replaceable.
"Many people think it's great to quickly click around and buy their policy on the internet," states website owner, Phillip Sanouvong, "but when they have a car accident, they are annoyed by all the 1-800 numbers, poor customer service, and the absence of a personal advocate on their side."
Advantages of having a local insurance agent include:
Setting up your auto policy face to face with an agent who works to give you the best balance of coverage and pricing for your individual situation
Talking to the same person every time you call with a question or need to make changes to your policy
Getting answers quickly when life changing events happen - For example, your child gets their drivers license
The ability to drop off payments to a local office
Enjoying peace of mind knowing exactly what is covered and for how much
Saving money by getting all the discounts available to you and your situation
Getting advice on your territory rating that only someone who lives and works in your area would know about
Having someone who understands the special risks and possible coverage issues specific to your area that you should consider when contemplating your policy. For example, areas highly affected by flood, theft, etc.
Getting personal attention during a claim or car accident
Having a personal advocate on your side to help with a claim
Supporting your community by supporting a local small business
Getting some special treatment - Whether it is a reminder call when your payment is late, an annual review of your policy, or simply a personalized Christmas card, there are special perks when you have a relationship with your insurance agent.
Overall, your car insurance is too important of a purchase to not discuss it with an agent first! InsureMyVehicle.Com features a directory of car insurance agents all around the country. Be sure to visit for more information about car insurance and to meet your hometown agent.
