Why an independent agency?

One of the fundamental rules of the marketplace is that competition results in lower prices. When an insurance agency is captive, it means they represent only one insurance carrier. What if better coverage exists…at better prices? That’s why an independent agency is always a smart choice. Evans, Hauseman & Richard can scour our network of trusted, top-rated carriers for the best coverage at the best available rates. More choices mean more savings.
