How is insurance distributed
| There are 3 basic methods of distributing insurance. We will try to explain each. We are an independent agent so we will give a more complete description of this system than the others

can offer you the insurance of only one company, and only on the
telephone or over the internet . Quite often only one line of insurance, such as auto.
Independent Insurance Agents
are members of the American Agency System, each of whom
represent an average of eight insurance companies, handle multiple lines
of insurance, and can search these firms to find you the best combination of price, coverage and service.
The Independent Agents, through the American Agency System
have always been selected best by the insurance buying public. It is the oldest system and sells more insurance than the other
two systems combined. Heavy advertising campaigns, atacking our system has not changed this fact.
No one company can offer the best premium and best service in all situations.
Insurance policies are not static.
You continuingly make changes as your family's situation change. Changing drivers, cars, and coverages can drastically
affect your premium and/or your desirability to your insurance company.
Your independent agent is familiar with his companies and their differences. He can suggest alternatives to your
requests. One alternative could be to change companies if your situation warrants it.
This is only one of the reasons American Agency System remains the most solid, viable and proven method of insurance distribution.
