The Globe story yesterday prompted some real debate on Boston.com over the value of independent insurance agents versus direct auto insurance carriers like Progressive and Liberty Mutual. I tend to agree that direct writers spend their “commission” dollars on advertising just like agent companies pay agents. However, you can’t argue with real savings and Progressive.com is an easy place to buy auto insurance.
Keep the companies competing for your business and the more companies the better! Check out the banter and read for yourself.
