Get a Progressive Auto Quote From An Authorized Insurance Agent (Like Us)
Progressive Insurance is one of the leading insurance companies in America. You see their ads everywhere. From print ads to radio spots, to TV commercials; they make it very easy to get a Progressive Quote.
Take a closer look at these ads. At the very end, they usually include the words “Local Agent”.
Why? Because, Progressive recognizes that many of their best customers prefer purchasing through an Authorized Progressive Agent. They realize we are an excellent value for many clients.
The Top Three Reasons To Use A Progressive Authorized Agent
Have you ever gotten an auto quote online? Are you comfortable knowing what each coverage option means? Do you know which limit is best for you? Should you keep “Full Coverage” on your vehicle, or just go with “Liability Only”?
An Authorized Progressive Agent can help you with all of these questions…and then some. Good agents are good listeners. By asking the right questions, we’re able to find ways to make sure you’re properly covered at the lowest price possible.
Just as important; we’ll make sure your Progressive quote is accurate. There is nothing worse than thinking you have a good number only to find out that something was missing which caused the rate to change.
It’s amazing how many times I hear customers say, “I never knew that!”, or “Finally, I understand”, or my favorite, “That’s cheaper than I thought!”
An independent agent is more than an order taker. Most have years of experience working with a number of insurance carriers. Our knowledge is not just limited to one company. So, we can offer options you may not get when going online, or calling a 1-800 number.
TWO: We Know Your Name
Once you’ve purchased your Progressive policy, the odds are very slim that you’ll ever speak to the same person twice. That may be fine for some, but what if you want to follow up on an issue? Wouldn’t you prefer to speak to that same person again?
Having a relationship with an agency allows you to do just that. We know who you are. We remember what we talked about the last time you called. This allows us to understand your needs. Not just now, but as those needs change over time.
Many clients, who first call to get a Progressive auto quote end up asking us to bundle all of their needs. This could mean everything from homeowners, or condo insurance, to umbrella coverage.
Building a relationship of trust helps us meet your needs.
THREE: We Can Help With Your Claim
Let me be clear…Progressive Insurance has excellent claims service. It’s one of the reasons we are so proud to represent them. In the vast majority of claims, they do an excellent job.
However, from time to time, a client may have a misunderstanding with a claims adjuster. Maybe something wasn’t communicated properly. Or, maybe you’d like a little guidance since you’ve never experienced a claim before.
Don’t worry…we’re here for you! We can help you through the process. Sometimes this means we contact the adjuster, personally, just to make sure everyone is on the same page. Other times, it simply means explaining how things will work once a claim has been filed.
The important thing to remember: you’re not alone when you have an agent.
BONUS (Okay…so there are really 4 reasons): Flexibility
You don’t have to worry about losing any of the benefits of a Progressive Insurance policy when you purchase it from a local agent. In fact, you get the best of both worlds.
Not only will you benefit from the personal attention only an independent agent can provide, but you also enjoy all the “extras” that Progressive offers its “Direct” clients.
This includes 24 Hour customer service and claims phone numbers, as well as the awesome Progressive phone app.
Want to ask a billing question at 3am? You can still call Progressive directly.
Want to use the Progressive app to file a claim? No problem!
It’s 11pm on a Sunday night and you just realized you forgot to add that new car you bought Saturday morning? It’s okay…you can still call Progressive directly and take care of it, so you can sleep better!
So, there you have it: Having a Progressive Authorized Agent gives you great value from Progressive.
One more suggestion: Make sure the agent is a Progressive “Platinum” agent…especially if you want to bundle your home, condo, or renters insurance. Progressive “Platinum” agencies (like us) represent a small percentage of the Progressive agent force. This special designation allows us to offer you extra discounts, and coverage options other agents can’t.
We’re proud Progressive Insurance is an important part of our agency, and that so many of our clients enjoy the benefits of the special partnership we provide. To find out more call for a free auto quote today!
