Independent Agents vs. Captive Agents in Wisconsin
Are you aware that there are two very different types of insurance agents? When shopping for Wisconsin insurance, you can choose to work with an independent or captive agent. The differences between the two are significant:
- Independent agents: These insurance agents work for you, not for a specific insurance company. Independent agents have relationships with a variety of different insurance providers and can use these relationships to find you several suitable policies at competitive rates. They are uniquely equipped to build customized coverage packages that can meet your specific coverage needs. Also, when you work with an independent agent, you can have all your insurance policies conveniently administered through one office and one agent.
- Captive agents: These agents work exclusively for one specific insurance company. Captive agents are therefore very limited in what they can offer you. If you work with this type of agent, you will need to comparison shop with other companies in order to be sure that you are getting a suitable policy at a reasonable rate. Captive agents have fewer coverage options to work with, and this makes them less able to customize policies to meet your specific coverage needs.
The Trusted Choice network includes only independent agents, who can access many insurance companies to find just the right coverage for your unique needs.
