Insurance Buying Options

Buying insurance protection can be confusing. We’re here to make it easier. There are three different types of agents out there. Learn about each one so you can choose the best method for your individual needs.

  1. Captive agents represent and sell the insurance of only one company.
  2. Telephone Representatives offer you one company’s insurance on the telephone only.
  3. Independent Insurance Agents, like Rothschild Agency, represent a number of insurance companies and research with these firms to find you the best combination of price, coverage and service.

Your Independent Insurance Agent:

  • Is a licensed professional with strong customer and community ties.
  • Gives you excellent service and competitive prices because your agent can access the insurance coverage from more than one company.
  • Unlike other agents, is not beholden to any one company; thus, you don’t need to change agencies as your insurance and service needs change.
  • Assists you when you have a claim.
  • Is your consultant working with you as you determine your needs.
  • Offers you a choice of insurance plans and programs.
  • Is a value hunter who looks after your pocketbook in finding the best combination of price, coverage and service.
  • Offers one-stop shopping for a full range of products-home, renters, auto, business, life and health.
  • Can periodically review your coverage to keep up with your changing insurance needs.
  • Treats you like a person, not just another number.

There is a difference.
