Why Choose an Independent Insurance Agent

Pike Mutual Insurance is marketed solely through independent agencies throughout Ohio. Here are a few reasons why finding an independent insurance agent is a great asset for you as the consumer.


Licensed experts in the insurance industry.

We hire lawyers to interpret legal documents, doctors to diagnose medical issues, accountants to handle complex financial matters, and so on. We need them because they have specialized knowledge and credentials that we don’t necessarily possess that would benefit us. A licensed insurance agent is no different! They can explain the ins and outs of insurance to us, and they know the workings of the industry. They are there to help their customers to find appropriate coverage for their individual needs.


In your corner, right around the corner.

An independent agent is your neighbor. They are familiar with the area that you live in and are often very involved within the community.  A good agent will take the time to listen to you in order to understand your unique needs. They are your advocate – making sure that you are properly protected, helping you with claims or billing issues. They review your coverage periodically, and are with you no matter what stage of life you are in to make sure you have the right insurance.


Your personal insurance shopper.

Independent agents can offer numerous types of insurance: auto, home, business, even life or health. They represent many insurance companies, and have many connections, so they can often find you a better value than you can find yourself. They know how to match your insurance needs with the carrier that will best meet those needs at an affordable price. Plus, you can get it all in one convenient place!
