When researching a reliable agent, you need to know there are two different types of agents that differ in how they can insure your vehicles. Insurance agencies in Clinton are either independent or captive.
Captive agencies are contracted to one company like Allstate, AAA, Liberty Mutual and State Farm. These agents are not able to give you multiple price quotes so it’s a take it or leave it situation. These agents are usually quite knowledgeable on their company’s products and that can be a competitive advantage. Some consumers prefer to buy from captive agents partially due to the prominence of the brand and the convenience of having all coverages with one company.
Shown below are Clinton captive agencies who may provide you with price quotes.
These agents are not employed by any specific company so they have the ability to put coverage with multiple insurance companies depending on which coverage is best. If you are not satisfied with one company, your agent can switch companies without you having to go to a different agency.
When searching for an agent, it’s a good idea to include at a minimum one independent agency to have the most options to choose from. They often place coverage with lesser-known insurance companies which may provide better rates.

Companies like Allstate and Progressive regularly use ads in print and on television. All the ads make the same claim that you can save if you move your coverage to them. But how can every company say the same thing?
Insurance companies have a preferred profile for the type of driver that earns them a profit. An example of a driver they prefer could be a mature driver, has no prior claims, and has a short commute. A customer getting a price quote that hits that “sweet spot” is entitled to the best price and therefore will save when they switch companies.
Potential customers who do not match the “perfect” profile will have to pay a more expensive rate which usually ends up with the customer not buying. The ads say “people who switch” not “people who quote” save that kind of money. This is how insurance companies can state the savings. Because of the profiling, you should get quotes from several different companies. Because you never know the company that will fit your personal profile best.
