Why Use an Independent Insurance Agent?

January 7, 2022

When shopping around for insurance, you want to find the best deal you can, while getting the best coverage available. At American Heritage Insurance, we’ve been providing Marylanders with our insurance services for years, and we wanted to take some time today to talk about how you can benefit from working with an independent insurance agent.

They Provide You with Choice

When you work with an independent insurance agent, they’re able to shop around for you. Since they’re independent, the agent has all the incentive in the world to find you the best policy possible, rather than just try to sell you whatever their company is pushing. By going with an independent insurance agent, you’ll be ensuring you receive the best coverage possible, all while saving money.

Independent Insurance Agents Are Licensed Experts

Just like their dependent counterparts, independent insurance agents are required to be knowledgeable and licensed. No matter what kind of insurance needs you have, when you sit down with an independent insurance agent, they’ll be able to tailor a custom insurance plan that meets all your needs and wants.

Independent Agents Are Personable

While we’ve certainly met some dependent agents we can call friends, there’s no denying that when it comes down to forming an insurance plan for you, they have some exterior motives. Independent agents aren’t predisposed to offer you anything, and instead are incentivized to offer you a personalized insurance plan.

At American Heritage Insurance, we take a lot of pride in the work we do. We know how important your insurance plan is to you, and that’s why it’s important to us.

Over and above the time, effort and saved dollars that you put into earning our business – your careful attention to detail in getting our coverage right is what mattered the most.
