| February 21, 2019

Choosing the right auto insurance can be hard. The product can be confusing, there seem to be unlimited options, and there are so many decisions to make. However, choosing the right insurance agency should not be hard.  Unlike insurance companies, independent insurance agencies can offer customers insurance through many different companies. With so many agencies to choose from, it can be tough to determine how to pick one agency over another.  At PLR Insurance, we’d like to simplify that process for you. While, obviously, we at PLR are a bit biased as to what you should look for in an auto insurance agency, below are a list of some objective characteristics that we think everyone should keep in mind while choosing. 1. No Pressure. If you are shopping around for auto insurance and an agent tries to pressure you into a certain insurance plan, that’s a sure sign that you should look elsewhere. While PLR’s insurance agents WILL provide their expertise about the coverage you NEED, they’ll never try and pressure you into purchasing something you don’t need.  We believe in educating our customers by sitting down with them and describing each coverage and why it’s important. We’ll give you our expert opinion (based on decades of insurance experience), but ultimately, it’s your life and your decision.
