Deciding who to buy your auto insurance from is a big decision. However, before you can even pick a company to work with, you need to decide whether you are going to work with an auto insurance broker or an auto insurance agent.
An auto insurance agent works with a specific auto insurance company. They present you the plans that are offered by their employer. An auto broker works for you. They can pull plans from a wide variety of companies, not just one, presenting you plans from various auto insurance companies.
There are many benefits to using an auto insurance broker over an auto insurance agent. Most agents are loyal to the person who signs their paycheck. They make their money selling you a policy through their employer, regardless of whether it is the best one for you or not. A broker makes their money by selling you plans as well. However, they make their money from you buying any plan. As such, they are loyal to you, not an insurance company. What this means for you is that most auto insurance brokers can help you find the best possible policy for you, regardless of what insurance company the plan is with. This ultimately means that the policy may be better for you than a policy that an auto insurance agent comes up with for you.
