3 Reasons to Choose an Independent Insurance Agency, Dumas, Texas

When you’re shopping for an insurance policy, one of the most significant decision you will make is whether to choose a big provider or an independent insurance agency. While both have benefits, an independent agency offers personalized service and policies. Below is more information about the unique benefits that an independent agency can offer you.

Why You Should Pick an Independent Insurance Agency

1. More Options

When you choose a big name insurance provider, you only have access to the policies that they offer. However, an independent agency can shop across many large providers, allowing you to find multiple different options that work with your lifestyle. This is especially significant for policies that aren’t common—such as crop insurance—because a single provider cannot always offer this with your home or auto coverage.

2. Unbiased Perspective

When you work with an independent agent, they will be honest with you about coverage that does not fit your budget or needs. This will also save you money because an independent agency has access to affordable policies across many different providers that a single company cannot match.

3. Personalized Attention

Because an independent agent doesn’t have a specific attachment to one company, you won’t have to worry about losing them if you decide to switch providers. That allows them to work with you as new insurance needs arise, such as teen drivers, new mortgages, or home renovations. With an independent insurance agency, you’ll receive prompt, focused attention from someone that understands your unique situation.
