When researching a good Everett insurance agent, there are a couple of types of agencies from which to choose. Agents are categorized either independent (non-captive) or captive.
Captive insurance agents are contracted to one company and some examples include State Farm, Allstate and AAA. Captives cannot give you multiple price quotes so they have no alternatives for high prices. These agents are usually quite knowledgeable on their products and sales techniques which can be an advantage. Consumers often buy from captive agents partially due to high brand loyalty and strong financial ratings.
The following are Everett captive insurance agents who can help you get price quote information.
Independent insurance agents do not work for one specific company but rather can write business with lots of companies and possibly get better coverage at lower prices. If you are not satisfied with one company, an independent agent can move your coverage and you won’t have to switch agencies.
When comparison shopping, it’s recommended you include multiple independent agents for maximum quote selection. Many write coverage with smaller regional carriers which can save you money.
Shown below is a list of independent agencies in Everett that are able to give price quotes.

Insurance agents are important, but Washington consumers also have the option to buy direct from companies online. Certain auto insurance companies, such as Farmers Insurance and State Farm, who have local agents in Everett also give you the option to get a quote and buy online. This is something to consider and can also potentially find you lower rates.
If you’re worried about not having an insurance agent’s advice when buying car insurance direct, don’t sweat it. Insurance companies that allow you to purchase coverage have customer service departments for getting advice on proper coverages.
Can you find lower rates online? That is a tough question to answer due to the fact that there are many factors that impact your final bill. You may think that buying online saves the cost of an agent commission. But in reality, marketing their products costs a lot of money so this can offset any savings.
Cheaper auto insurance is definitely available on the web and with local Everett insurance agents, and you should compare price quotes from both in order to have the best chance of saving money. A few companies do not offer online quoting and most of the time these small insurance companies sell through independent agents.
Consumers switch companies for a variety of reasons including denial of a claim, poor customer service, questionable increases in premium and extreme rates for teen drivers. It doesn’t matter why you want to switch finding a new company is less work than it seems.
