Why an Independent Insurance Agent?
There are a number of ways to procure insurance products to protect your assets - whether personal or business. One form of insurance distribution is through independent insurance agents. Independent insurance agents are men and women entrepreneurs who own there business and most importantly, have access to multiple insurance company products. The ability to work with numerous markets equates to the best opportunity to tailor coverages to suit your needs.
As independent businesspeople who live and work in your community, independent insurance agents also impact the local economy. Nearly 2,000 individuals are employed by independent agents in Rhode Island and they - like you - are taxpayers, in addition to being committed to the state and local business climate. IIARI members are vested in the success of our state and demonstrate it everyday in Rotary Clubs, little league baseball organizations and the like. Whether providing support or employing your next door neighbor, independent agents look out for your interests.
Many consumers consider price as the sole criteria in making a purchase decision. Beware of the pitfalls of basing decisions exclusively on price. Like many other products and services - many times you get what you pay for. That's not to say there aren't good values to find when looking at insurance policies, but spend the time to investigate all your options with an independent insurance agent who can bring numerous markets to the table.
