Insurance Agents vs. Buying Direct
Why You'd Be Crazy To Buy Direct
Unless you've been hold up for the past few years in your apartment playing Second Life or have gone off the grid you most likely have seen those commercials with lizards, cartoon characters and colorful clerks peddling insurance. The attempt of these companies to make buying insurance more exciting than the product itself is understandable, but the effect of doing so could very well create complacent consumers not understanding the importance of having the right coverage before the right price. Let's face it insurance is not a glamorous product. People aren't shopping weekends for the latest insurance product and it's seldom a topic of conversation. That said, at the time of purchase it still needs careful attention and the lack of importance some direct writers portray auto insurance, or any insurance will, in my opinion, be problematic to some of their customers when they have an accident.
