Frequently Asked Questions
What is an Independent Agent?
To summarize, being an independent agent means we represent a number of companies. Advantage Insurance Agency represents 20 companies or more. This means you have a great number of companies to choose from vs just one carrier from the big name insurance companies. They only have one product, but we can cover the entire marketplace to best meet your needs.
Why should I work with an Independent Agent rather than directly with the insurance company?
When you work with Advantage Insurance Agency, you will have a dedicated account manager that you can call directly to ask questions about your policy or make changes to your coverages. We form relationships with our clients, so you’ll work with the same people every time who already know you and are familiar with your insurance situation. A great relationship also allows us to advocate for you to the insurance company and relay your personal experiences to them to obtain appropriate insurance coverages for your needs.
What kind of information will you need to quote my insurance?
First, we’ll need basic information about you and/or your business like name, address, phone number, and e-mail address. Then we’ll need info about your home/business such as year built, construction, and updates. For auto insurance, we’ll need information for each driver that has access to the vehicles and the year, make, model, and VIN for each vehicle to be covered. A lot of this information can be found in your current insurance policies’ declaration pages. Having a copy of this can easily speed up the process! Depending on your situation, additional questions may be asked to ensure we address your specific coverage needs.
Do I need my own life insurance if I have coverage through work?
Yes! The majority of life insurance that is provided through your employer stays in place only while you continue to work for them. Having your own life insurance policy will ensure that it goes with you, regardless of whether you change jobs.
