If you want to buy car insurance from an independent car insurance agent you need to look for small insurance offices in your city or town.

Or look online for independent car insurance agents and you can usually easily find them.

There are several independent insurance agents out there that sell car insurance and work for themselves.

Then they get a commission for selling the car insurance.

If you want good car insurance I recommend either State Farm Car Insurance or Geico car insurance as I've had both and now I have State Farm Car Insurance which has been cheaper for me.

I also bundle my homeowners insurance along with my car insurance and save money.

You should buy your coverage from a captive agent, if you are dedicated to a specific insurance firm. Since captive agents deal with only one company, they will know all the different insurance options offered by that company. And, thus they can assist you to build the right package based on your needs. However, captive agents may take more time to respond to your questions and to know your needs as compared to independent agents who work for commission.
