3 questions to ask your insurance agent

When considering switching your Las Vegas auto or home insurance, you should not only compare prices, but also understand the products and services offered by your new insurance agent. Here are 3 questions to ask your insurance agent before you buy a new insurance policy:

  1. Are all of your insurance carriers “A” rated and how are claims handled?
  2. Do you offer 24/7 policy service and online access to my policies?
  3. How often will you review my insurance policies?

The answers to these questions should tell you a great deal about the quality of service your insurance agent provides. If you have your auto, home, umbrella, health, or life insurance with Safeguard, here is how we would answer these important questions:

Are all of your insurance carriers “A” rated and how are claims handled?

We only represent insurance carriers that have an “A” rating from the AM Best Company.  In general, we also work with carriers that have a financial size category of VII or better. This financial rating assures our customers that they are covered by a financially sound and well-run insurance provider.

After 17 years in business, we know that the way an insurance claim is handled can make or break our relationship with a customer. It is our goal to have every legitimate claim handled promptly and paid fairly. We only work with insurance providers that have a good industry reputation for fast and fair claim settlement.

Do you offer 24/7 policy service and online access to my policies?

Yes, we offer you 24/7 policy service by phone and online. Safeguard Insurance has invested heavily in technology and has one of the most sophisticated management systems available. We consolidate policy information from dozens of insurance companies into one easy to view screen. In other words, you may auto insurance with Travelers, home insurance with Safeco, motorcycle insurance with Progressive but with one login you can see all your policies in our Client Portal system.

Plus, we always answer the phone. Our office is staffed from 8AM to 5PM, our chat system is staffed from 7AM to 7PM and an after hours emergency operator is always available to assist you.

How often will you review my insurance policies?

At least once a year your agent or account representative will review your auto, home, health and other insurance policies and offer you alternate quotes. We may not always have a lower price, but at least you will know you have our best price and coverage recommendations. We are always happy to discuss your coverage and pricing with you, at any time.

There is a reason Safeguard Insurance is one of the largest insurance agencies in Las Vegas: we have great rates, incredible service, and convenient technology. Quite simply, we are the best choice for a local Las Vegas insurance provider.  When shopping for auto, home, life, health, motorcycle, umbrella or business insurance, we hope you’ll put Safeguard on your must-call list!
