When you want to buy insurance, you want a policy that’s inexpensive and that covers your needs. You could buy directly from an insurance provider, but how do you know you’re getting the appropriate coverage? If there’s a change in your situation or something happens at your insurance company, you would have to rely on the company to explain what happened. Maybe you want a little more information than what you see online or on your statement, or your circumstances are something special.
That’s why you want a local independent insurance agent who knows you and what you want from your coverage. Ordering a T-shirt or even a pizza online is one thing — but do you want to rely just on the internet for something as important and long-lasting as insurance for your house, car, business, or farm? Probably not; you want to talk with someone, so you can really go into detail about what you need. An agent can also help you save by spotting discounts and customizing your coverage.
How do we help you find an agent? By using a tool with that name. Find An Agent is on the top of your screen as you read this (look in the top right corner or open the menu up there if you’re on a mobile device). Click on that and you’ll go to another screen where you enter your contact information, the best way to reach you, and the type of business(es) that you want information on. If you’re not sure, start with the coverages listed at the top of each column (Businessowners, Homeowners, and Farmowners).
Once you’ve typed in your information, you’re all set! Our tool will search our list of more than 600 insurance agent partners to find the ones that are closest to your address and that offer the coverage you’re looking for. We take the information you send us, then ask an agent to reach out to you using email, a phone call, or a text — whatever you would like. They can get right to helping you since they know the type of coverage you’re looking for.
We have product information sheets right on our website, too, to help you understand what you’re discussing when you talk with an agent.
Find an Agent is what you need to get started with Hastings Mutual. “Insurance is about relationships” is an old adage in the insurance business, and it’s true. Protecting your family, your possessions, and your livelihood is important to us. Getting to know you is important to our agent partners and Hastings Mutual.
