Our agents are here to help you understand everything about your insurance policies so please, ask away! One insurance question you may have is:
“What’s the difference between an insurance agency and an insurance company?”
An insurance agency is a business made up of insurance agents who act as intermediaries between the insured (you) and the insurance company. Your insurance agent is your go-to resource for any question you may have on your policies. You can think of them as a representative for both you and the insurance company. An independent insurance agency, such as Community Insurance, represents a variety of companies and will work to find you the best policy out of those companies.
On the other hand, an insurance company is a company that offers policies to the public and is the entity that actually insures you. Insurance companies can specialize in one type of insurance, such as Hagerty, a company that insures classic cars. Other insurance companies offer a range of policies, such as West Bend Mutual, which offers auto and home insurance policies.
If you need any more clarification between and agency and a company, or if you have any other insurance questions, contact your Wisconsin insurance agent today!
