Colleges in Oklahoma are expensive enough without the added cost of unexpected accidents or theft, not covered by your insurance policy. If you have a student heading away to school in Oklahoma, below are a few tips to help you get the most out of your coverage!
You are constantly bombarded with ads for big, well-known insurance companies. Chances are that you’re familiar with Progressive’s Flo and Geico’s gecko. So it makes sense that you might gravitate toward one of these companies.
However, working with an Independent Insurance Agent has many benefits that you should be aware of before deciding where to take your business.
Instead of calling one insurance company and getting a quote one at a time for their products, independent agents work with a network of trusted insurance providers. They input your information and receive quotes from many insurance providers, saving you numerous phone calls.
Rather than seeking out several quotes for yourself, an independent agent will assess your needs and then do the work for you. With just one phone call, you’ll have a person working in your best interests to find you the best policy for the right price.
Aside from just renewing your policy for another year, ask your independent agent to check to see if there are any better deals that suit your needs. Agents have saved customers lots of money by doing this.
With big companies, you have to navigate an automated answering system when you call. But with independent agents, you get a real person. Plus, these agencies serve a smaller area than large companies, so they can spend more time with each customer in order to address your questions and concerns.
Independent agencies are local, which means that they’re familiar with neighborhood needs. They know if your town is located in a flood plain and the likelihood of theft in your area. This makes independent agents valuable resources when it comes to coverage needs and discounts.
