Why Choose an Independent Insurance Agent?

Independent Insurance Agents In Athens, Alabama

Not all independent insurance agents are the same.  Choosing the right one can make a big difference – in price, service, competency, and value.

With captive agents (i.e., State Farm, Allstate, Farmers, etc.) you get one company that sells one brand of insurance. With an independent insurance brokerage like Pepper, Johnstone & Co. you have choices.

Why? Because independent insurance brokerages, like Pepper, Johnstone & Co., represent a number of different insurance companies, and can compare coverage and price to find the best possible value for your individual circumstances.  As independent insurance brokers, we are members of the community, and we’re committed to doing business face-to-face and being your advocate in times of need.

Here are a few reasons why Pepper, Johnstone & Co. should be your first and last stop when looking for insurance:

  • We work for you when you have a claim.
  • We are not beholden to any one insurance company. This means you don’t have to change agencies as your insurance and service needs change.
