Find a local agent
Personal connections. Unlike the giant insurance chains, Western States Insurance is a local, independent agency. We're not trying to sell you a policy just because it has our name on it; we're here to help you find the right policy at the right price. Since our inception in 1981, Western States has become a major regional agency. Hometown.
And stronger for it.With over three hundred employees at over twenty-five branches across four states, and over $400 million in annual premium revenue, Western States Insurance is consistently one of the top 100 largest insurance agencies in the United States. This gives us the buying power and leverage to get some of the best deals in the market, and to negotiate unique solutions for our clients. We work with dozens of insurance carriers, carefully evaluating their products and benefits programs to bring you the best values... and the best rates. Because we tailor your coverage to fit your situation, you don't buy more (or less) insurance than you need. The appropriate amount of coverage at the best available price... that's part of the value you get when you choose Western States Insurance.
Look closer. If you watch television, finding insurance may seem like a no-brainer. A number of carriers can provide you quotes instantly over the Internet. Some even give you the option of printing your proof of insurance from their website. It may not seem all that hard. What is hard is figuring out what you're actually buying. For that, you need to ask a lot of questions. Is the insurance carrier financially sound, or are they going to turn a claim into a nightmare? Do you really want to save an extra $6 a month if your deductible increases from $250 to $1000? Do you have a loss-prevention program at your company that you could take to a carrier to get a better deal on commercial insurance? Is your benefits program really addressing the issues you're trying to address? What is your real tolerance for risk?
At Western States Insurance, we're going to ask those questions and a lot more. We'll get you informed about insurance so you can ask us the right questions, too. The only way we can Expect questions.
