Why Buy Local?

Brad Carlson Insurance Agency

We Love Local

There are many inherent advantages to buying insurance in the community in which you live.  Service, accountability, personal relationships and that helping hand after a claim occurs.  After reading a recent post from a frustrated consumer looking for referrals for a new insurance provider, it was great to see how many local agencies were recommended by customers (including ours).   Even so, I was somewhat surprised to see how many folks shop out of town for insurance and even nationally based companies with no local interest in our community.  The answers for that are varied but it did prompt me to ask “why should we buy local?”

As it turns out, there are economic reasons to consider beyond the insurance aspects of the question.  The attached 2010 study from Michigan State University and author Nandy Robinson illustrates.  Please take a moment to read and consider whether you could benefit yourself and your community by shopping locally too.
