Frequently Asked Questions
There’s no single insurance company that is best for everyone. The company that best meets your needs may differ from your co-worker or your relative.
When determining which company is best for your Connecticut home and auto insurance, consider the following:
- The company’s financial stability. This is important because you want to make sure the company can cover the cost of your claims, should you have one.
- The quality of coverages available to you. Exact coverages differ between carriers and can vary by state. Some carriers may include extra coverages in their packages when they write the whole account. You must understand what’s included in each quote.
- Overall costs. Price will always play a factor in evaluating your home and auto insurance options. When comparing costs, look at the combined premiums for your auto, home, and other insurance you may need. While one carrier may offer a meager premium on auto, for example – the home premium could be very high, causing the combined premium to be higher than other choices.
- What others have to say about working with the company. Take a moment to read online reviews and ask your agent about their experiences dealing with the company. While no one is perfect, the company’s reviews and your agent’s experience should indicate that they’re relatively easy to interact with and aligned with what’s important to you.
Every client receives a dedicated InsureGood Advisor to act as the lead on their account. Your Advisor will perform your annual Business360 and Review360, coordinate any outside services you may need, answer your coverage questions, and more. Think of them as a business partner.

InsureGood’s technology-enabled platform allows you to interact with us in whatever manner works for you from traditional communication such as phone or email to video chats, texting, or chatbots. You also receive access to our mobile app and the MyProtect360 portal to seamlessly manage all of your insurance from wherever you are.
Placing all of your insurance through one carrier or “bundling,” as referred to, can be financially beneficial.
First, placing all of your policies with one carrier helps minimize the risk of gaps in coverage and claims issues should you suffer a loss. There is only one company evaluating the loss and determining coverage. Some companies even offer additional coverages for free when you place both your auto and your home with them as a bonus.
Bundling your policies together can also save you money. Because it’s advantageous for insurance companies to handle all of your insurance needs, they make it very attractive to do so by offering significant discount credits of 25% and more in some cases) when you place all of your policies with them.
It’s also easier for you to manage your insurance when it’s bundled with one carrier. That means you’re only paying one bill, only have one company you need to interact with, and one app or portal to log into.
Bundling may not always be an option (like when you have a unique risk such as a coastal property and classic car, for example), but when it’s available, it’s worth considering.

As an Independent insurance agency, we can provide you with choices on your coverage and costs. Still, unlike most traditional agencies, we’re built on modern technology and business platforms designed to meet the needs of the modern entrepreneur.
Lastly, we’re a mission-driven company built on the idea of giving other entrepreneurs in our local communities, particularly minorities – the same access to opportunities, education, and capital that we’ve been blessed to receive. 20% of our profits go to providing capital, education, and mentorship to other female entrepreneurs. When we grow, so does our investment in community development.
We absolutely do! Although domiciled in Hartford, CT, we also have licenses and clients in the following states: Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
There are several advantages of working with an independent insurance agent over other options. Here’s a high-level overview:
- Independent insurance agencies offer choices. Because agents represent several insurance carriers, they can provide you with coverage and pricing options.
- They know you and put you first. Insurance agents are obligated by fiduciary law to put their client’s needs first. And because they get to know you and your lifestyle, they can make the proper recommendations as your needs evolve.
- They offer personalized service and one point of contact. Agents can obtain multiple quotes for you, offer advice on different coverages, act as your claim contact, save you time and simplify your life.
- You don’t have to pay more to work with an Agent. Independent Agents work for you for no additional costs. They generate revenue only when they sell a policy.
According to the Insurance Information Institute, the national average for homeowners insurance premium was $1,249, compared to $1,494 in Connecticut in 2018. And then, the national average for auto insurance premium was $1,056, compared to $1,216 in Connecticut in 2018.
Insurance companies (also called carriers) determine premiums based on the amount of insurance you need and the likelihood that something negative or a loss may happen (often referred to as risk or exposure).
Every insurance company puts different weight on these factors, which is why one carrier may offer a higher or lower premium than another to insure the same risk. This makes it almost impossible to say what each individual can expect to pay for Connecticut home and auto insurance without rating it in the carrier system.
Here are some tips to help manage your home and auto insurance costs:
- Don’t skimp on coverage – a loss will likely cost more than you pay in premium.
- Bundle as many of your policies as possible with one carrier to take advantage of credits and avoid gaps in coverage.
- Qualify for additional homeowners discounts by adding safety features such as central station alarms, fire alarms, and storm shutters.
- Take advantage of carrier telematics to lower your auto insurance with safe driving habits.
- Increase your home and auto insurance deductibles; higher deductibles will equal less premiums.
- To qualify for loyalty credits, do not change insurance carriers every year
- Try not to file small claims if you don’t have to so that you can take advantage of loss-free credits.
- Don’t allow your insurance to lapse. This will cause your rates to increase when looking for new insurance.
- Work with an independent agent who can help you find the best coverages and rates.
It may seem like all insurance agents are the same, but in reality, independent insurance agencies can be different in various ways. As you evaluate your choices, you may want to consider the following:
- Expertise and experience. Some agents have more specialized expertise than others. Consider your unique situation; if you have unusual or complex needs, ask your agent about their experience handling cases such as yours.
- Value provided. Some agents may offer more than basic Connecticut home and auto insurance. Do they have access to a program that offers unique coverage or a tool to help you manage your insurance risks, such as a home inventory list? Do they provide valuable communications or an annual process to ensure you’re adequately covered? If value-added services are important to you, ask about them in advance.
- Ease and simplicity. Consider what type of service and communication options they provide. Do they offer after-hours service options, online accessibility, texting, and technology such as apps? Are these options vital to you? If so, make sure to confirm their availability before deciding.
- Local preference. What’s their operational structure? Some agencies have local offices where you can meet with your agent. Others are more national operations without physical or local representation, and others are a combination of both. If you prefer one over another, ask about the locale before committing.
- General alignment. You should like and trust your insurance agent and agency. Before deciding which agency to work with, take a moment to review their “About” page. Are they credible? Do you feel good about their mission and values? Read their client reviews. Do they seem to offer the types and levels of service that are important to you?
