The Upside of Homeowner’s Insurance

 

Like most people, your home is probably your most prized possession. That’s why it’s important to make certain you are properly insured if your home is ever damaged. If you’re looking for homeowner’s insurance in Harrisburg, PA, or another Central Pennsylvania community, have you considered an independent insurance broker like Gunn-Mowery? Some homeowners do not know the difference between insurance companies and insurance brokers when it comes to getting homeowners insurance.

 

Quite simply, insurance companies are the companies providing insurance products. Independent Insurance Agents, on the other hand, work with multiple insurance companies to offer their clients a range of insurance options from different carriers.

 

Advantages of Working with an Independent Agency

 

  • A Better Deal. Let’s say you’re in the market for homeowner’s insurance. If you call a large national company, you get only their rates. If you call Gunn-Mowery, however, we can get rates for a variety of insurance companies, allowing for better comparison.

 

  • More Customized Solutions. When you work with an insurance company, you are limited by the products the company offers. With an insurance agency, however, we can find you the companies that may specialize in just the type of coverage you need.

 

  • A Local Presence. Working with an agency offering homeowners insurance and services can be a big advantage if you live in Lancaster, York, Harrisburg, State College or other Central PA locations. A local agent understands the area and local risks and needs. At Gunn-Mowery, we know what type of coverage may be available and we can offer different programs and options to meet those needs. That’s the Upside of Insurance.

My wife and I have been Gunn Mowery clients since we moved to the midstate in 2004. We've always been pleased with your agency, but especially so after my recent dealings with Joelle Fleeger. I called your office last month because I was concerned about a jump in our Homeowner's premium. I spoke to Joelle, who looked into it and found that the house was actually underinsured and the premium should have been even higher. As she researched further, she found that we could get full and adequate coverage with Safeco, along with a lower premium. By bundling two other policies with Safeco, we could save even more, which is something we've now done. Joelle put a lot of work into this, and we are very pleased with her efforts and results. She's a credit to your agency.
