I personally have never really shopped rates on any insurance. I got lucky and found a very good independent agent that does this for me. I have used the same agency since I bought my first home in the late 70's and have never had any problems. They carry all my home and auto insurance. I may pay more but my piece of mind knowing that all it takes is a phone call to my agent and the problem is taken care of.

This. I just sat down with my agent and we went over everything. She said companies are looking to add long time, locality discounts. I have two cars, umbrella, home, ranch all with her and she was able to save me $780 this year vs last year. I also agree thereís something to knowing your agent and probably pay more for that. Iím okay with that as I know she will work for me.

I always use independent agents who shop the best rates. I recently switched to a buddy of mine that left State Farm and now have Home And auto through Met Life.

If you arenít shopping Insurance every 5 years then youíre losing money.

This. We shop every 3 years and the Independents have always been cheaper. Don't fall for the "insure everything with one company and it will be cheaper" trap. I may be different but I am paying for a product and I have no loyalty to anyone. My best buddy is a Farmers agent and I dropped him like a bad habit after 15 years when he couldn't compete with the independents and I realized I have been pizzing money away.

Bumping this to the top. Recently added my 16 year old daughter (auto) and almost passed out I've got two older sons and have been through this in the last few years and I KNOW it is expensive but was not expecting what we were told.

I'm not necessarily unhappy with my current agent/insurance but they are in another state and it is hard to have an actual conversation with them. Between me an my folks we've been doing business with them for 40+ years and I think they are taking us for granted.

I'm starting the shopping process (home and auto) and if there are any agents/brokers in the Houston area please send me a PM if interested.
