Independent Insurance Agency - WHY?

So you have been with the same insurance company for years and years. Your rate continues to increase and you never get any form of communication from your current company other than the bill. Sounds familiar? This is one of the first things we hear when people call our office for a quote. More surprising however is so many times they call their existing company and don't even hear back from them. Our agency is much different. Making a call or a quick visit to our website to request a quote can change this for you as well. Our customers can rest assured that we continuously monitor their policies. If your renewal increases most of the time we have already reviewed your account to see if there are additional discounts that can be put on your policy before you have even gotten your renewal notice. Our staff will review your policy for new discounts and offer savings and when necessary we will remarket your policy with multiple carriers within our agency. That's a big difference from agencies that have an exclusive appointment with a company or dealing directly with a company that has to place your business with the only company they have. Our agency has some of the best carriers in the business and we would love to review your policy for you. Even if you are already with one of the many companies that we use but currently with another agency try putting our staff to work for you. It's what we do! If you are already insured with us first Thank you...we appreciate your business and we strive for no less than 5 Star customer service. If there is anything we can do you know we are just a phone call away. 

Take a look below let us see if we can cut your premium in half!

Maryland Drivers now required to carry valid proof of insurance while driving.

Effective October 1, 2016 all drivers in Maryland are required to carry valid proof of insurance, and present it during traffic stops, at the request of a law enforcement officer. Your Insurance Identification card is required to list the following information: 

  1. First Named Insured on the motor vehicle liability policy;
  2. Vehicle covered under the motor vehicle liability insurance policy; and,
  3. Period for which coverage under the motor vehicle liability policy is in effect. 

It is important to be aware of this new law and that a fine will be eventually be enforced. Please make sure that you have current proof of insurance in all of your vehicles. Make sure that your address is correct with your insurance company. The new law also allows for insurers to provide an electronic Insurance Identification Card with insured's consent. If you need updated ID cards please call either of our offices at 410.651.1111, or 410.749.2220 and we can email ID cards to you.

Attention: Farmers Non-renewal notices

If you or anyone you know receives a notice of non-renewal from Farmers insurance please ask them to call our agency. Farmers has withdrawn from the independent agency channel and have decided to non-renew all existing customers. Our agency has been successful in moving our customers to other carriers. In many cases with lower premiums and just as good of coverage as they had with Farmers. Recently we have been contacted by people who are insured with Farmers however have no idea who their agent is. Please, if you have friends or family that are insured with Farmers and they receive a non-renewal notice give them our phone number 410-651-1111, or 410-749-2220. We will take the stress of the non-renewal notice away and probably be able to save them money as well. It would help if they have a copy of the non-renewal notice as well as a current copy of their policies.
