Here are five quick reasons why an independent insurance agent is a better choice if you live in Santa Maria;
Written by Ron Lovell (actual California Star Insurance customer!)
- Choice - An independent auto insurance agent can look at your unique situation to find the company that specializes in the insurance products that are the best value for you. If you go to a State Farm agent, for example, they may only offer products from State Farm. At California Star Insurance Services we are authorized to write auto, home, motorcycle, or renters insurance policies from over 10 different companies.
- Personalized, Face-to-Face Service - Feel free to come in to our office for real service and answers. We have the convenience of online services, but sometimes it is quicker to come by the office. We are now located in the center of Santa Maria at Betteravia and Broadway. Grab a coffee and have our agents walk you through the best insurance options.
- Buy Local - Several studies have shown that when you buy ANY product or service from an independent, locally-owned business instead of a nationally-owned business, more of your money stays local. This strengthens the economic base in Santa Maria!
- Long-Term Relationships - I had a long-term relationship with a certain gecko (12 years). I thought my loyalty was being rewarded with a better rate. Wrong. According to Consumer Reports in 2015, (article here) some companies offer no loyalty discount or may even charge you more since you are less likely to switch based on your track record. You are less sensitive to price increases. At California Star Insurance Services you get to speak with the owner of the company any time. You can compare rates and look at the actual discounts based on bundling. loyalty, etc.
- Nice People! - California Star Insurance Services has been serving California for over 50 years. We specialize most insurance products. Auto or car , renters, homeowners, umbrella, motorcycle, RV, classic car, boat, earthquake insurance and many more. Customer service is our riority and that includes getting you the best value year after year.
