Why You Should Break Up With Big-Box Insurance

Do you feel like you’re not being heard in your relationship with your … insurance company? If you find yourself waiting on hold, getting frustrated talking to a robot, or explaining your situation over and over again, it’s time to break up with your big-box insurance company. Like finding your life partner, committing to the right insurance agent should be based on compatibility and overall happiness. Stop ignoring the red flags and realize it’s time to work with a local agent who will put you first. 

Here at Anderson, Bagley & Mayo Insurance (ABM Insurance), we’re not just your agent, we’re your neighbors here in North Central Massachusetts. We work and live in the same towns as you and truly care about protecting you, your family, and your business. Here are three reasons why we believe you should break up with big-box insurance and switch to a local agent today:

1. To them, you are just a number

Don’t you hate waiting on hold? Or having to dial a 1-800 number just to speak to an automated voice recording? With big-box insurance companies, you may never speak with a real person on the other end of the line. Do you trust that your national insurance company’s call center representative is going to understand your unique situation and do everything in their power to help you resolve it? If you answered “no” to any of the above questions, perhaps it’s time to consider buying insurance through a local agent.

2. The lowest price may not be the best price

Many big-box insurance companies focus on price point, not quality insurance. Big-box companies more often than not, will give you just one quote and slash your coverage arbitrarily to get your price point down. While the big-box insurance company may say they are lowering your price, they are often getting rid of coverage that will keep you and your loved ones safe. It is critical to talk to a knowledgeable insurance professional who will find you the best insurance coverage for your unique situation.

At ABM, our job is to provide you with multiple options and help you select a policy that’s the best match for you. We’re not married to just one insurance carrier — we represent many reputable insurance carriers that offer a wide variety of coverage options and price points. It is important for us to find you the best fit for your unique situation and we truly take the time to familiarize and understand your needs. Additionally, with our local connections and knowledge of the Massachusetts insurance market, our agents will work hand-in-hand with you to find the coverage you need. Our agents will do the grunt work. You do the benefiting.

3. They are likely not local

Long-distance relationships are hard enough, imagine if you needed someone during an emergency or had questions about filing a claim. In the event of an emergency, like a house fire, ABM insurance professionals are right around the corner, ready to help. We are not just an automated 1-800 number to call — at ABM, we are real people ready to help whenever you need us.

We provide coverage that will grow with you, your family, and your business, no matter where life takes you.

Today, more than ever, ABM is uniquely qualified to find you the best personal and business insurance solutions to safeguard the most important things and people in your life, while also saving you valuable time and money.
