Everywhere we turn now days, there is an insurance ad challenging us to dial a toll free number or visit a website in order to save 20-50 even 70% percent on auto insurance. The overwhelming quantity of commercials we are forced to watch on TV and online make people dizzy.
The simple answer is competition. Giant insurance companies like Geico and Progressive have flooded the marketplace with so much advertising that consumers rarely see a third choice and the true value in their insurance purchase.
While I have absolutely nothing against the “lizard” or the “pretty woman” who are in my sight every step of the way, the choices are out there. It doesn’t have to be this way. Trust me!
Try to do an online local search for California Auto Insurance, and you will be surprised to see how many results come up, this is because there is a third, a forth and many more choices as I mentioned. The choices are there and all it takes is your time to contact a few of these local agencies and make comparisons.
Why do this?
I’ll give you only four reasons.
1. CHOICE. When you contact an insurance company directly, they give you a choice. That’s right “a” choice. Now try an established insurance agency who works with 5, 10 or even 20 companies. Who do you think will get you the best protection, value and price under the sun? You’ve guessed it right, The Independent insurance broker.
2. SUPPORT. When you support your community and small businesses next door, you’re helping your neighbor and this is how communities evolve and become stronger.
3. SAVE TIME. Before your policy anniversary comes, your agent will shop around for you in order to find yet another great deal for your insurance policy, large companies do not have this option.
4. CONVENIENCE. Your agent will offer you full range of insurance products, including auto, homeowners, business, health and life, and by combining some or all of these policies you can save tremendously.
These actions are very simple yet often overlooked when shopping for California Auto Insurance. Because of all the overwhelming advertising we see on TV, listen to on radio, and see online while reading reviews for a cappuccino machine, we tend to get brainwashed into the big picture. Its in your hands, make the changes you wish to see.
