Selecting an Auto Insurance Agent is Like Playing Fantasy Football

I am an avid fantasy football player, and somehow I was able to relate playing fantasy football to that of purchasing Texas auto insurance. The goal in fantasy football is to win (winning in insurance terms is to purchase the best insurance coverage at an affordable price). In order to accomplish this goal, thorough research needs to be performed to make sure that the right player/insurance company is drafted in the right round.

You get to set up your draft board from an abundance of players/insurance companies. Evaluate the pros and cons of each player/insurance agency and select accordingly. Great thought should be taken during this process. Be careful not to overrate a player/an insurance agency. This is a mistake that I have made several times over when I first started fantasy football or when I signed up with an insurance company. I always tried to get the flashier player/insurance agency with the well-known name. A name that is so easily recognizable has to be all good.. right? Experience can be a great teacher, and has taught me that this is not always the case. Just maybe that player/insurance agency does more marketing that actually performing.

The thing about insurance companies is they are regulated by the state. For instance, I live near Dallas, TX, so if I wanted to know more about a company or review it’s record, I would go to the Texas Dept. of Insurance (TDI) website as a helpful resource to get information about a company. Let’s just say that TDI can be your SI (sports illustrated) when it comes to research on a company or agency.

For the most part, an insurance agent can shop around and find you a cheaper rate than a an insurance company (touchdown!). The service of an independent agent seems to be more personal (reception) and genuine. I hear too many times how insurance ratesทางเข้า ufabet เว็บเดิมพันออนไลน์ of some of the larger companies continue to rise (fumble!). Again, with an independent agent, if the company that you are signed up with rates increase (sack) , your agent can bench that one and offer you to a more affordable one (punt). Because consumers are becoming more informed and are trying to save money, larger insurance companies are losing out to the independent agent (interception).

Once you find the right independent agent and build a strong interpersonal relationship with that agent,
