Why an Independent Insurance Agent like Snapp & Son?

Some people think it doesn't really matter where they buy their insurance. But this misconception could be costing them money, service and protection. Buying insurance isn't like buying bread or milk. Insurance is an important safety net for your family, your home, your car or your business. Don't treat the purchase lightly!

Where you buy your protection makes a difference. Currently, there are three sources for insurance sales:

  1. Captive Agents, by definition, are salespeople who work exclusively for one insurance carrier and are obliged to sell for only that company. These can be self-employed business owners, with their local agency in a neighborhood (example: Allstate, Farmers, State Farm).

  2. Direct Agents, a sub-group of Captive Agents, although licensed, are not "agents" in the traditional sense. The Direct approach uses telephone call center employees to explain and sell their single insurance product. They usually do not have local "brick and mortar" agencies in the neighborhood and are increasing thanks to the the Internet (example: Geico, USAA Insurance)

  3. Independent Insurance Agents — such as Snapp & Son — represent an average of eight insurance companiesand continually research with these firms to find you the best combination of price, coverage and service. These professionals are self-employed business owners, have their local agency in the neighborhood, and are often honored to have serviced multiple generations of the same friends and families for decades (example: agents for SAFECO, Mutual of Enumclaw)

Your Independent Insurance Agent:

  • is a value hunter who looks after your pocketbook in finding the best combination of price, coverage and service.

  • 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 trusted consultant, working with you as you determine your needs.

  • offers you a choice of insurance plans and programs.

  • reviews your coverage to keep up with your changing insurance needs.

  • considers customer satisfaction the key to his or her livelihood, making serving you your independent agent's utmost concern.
