As a vehicle owner in Illinois, you have no doubt seen the array of advertisements for car insurance online and on television. The reason for the insurance spam is because as a driver in Athens, Illinois you must maintain at least the state minimum in auto insurance coverage. Meaning you would need to include basic liability coverage as well as uninsured motorist insurance. However, all companies are not created equal and choosing the right agent can be tricky.
Often it seems like some of the large insurance carriers focus more on the "business" of insurance rather than providing quality service to the insureds and making sure they are protected properly. Fortunately, there are many independent agents that are still focused on their customers. Ogden Insurance Agency, Inc. is a family-owned independent agency serving the Athens, Illinois community, providing insurance coverage through various top carriers, and working with multiple carriers allows us to focus on making sure our customers are not only covered properly but that they receive the best possible customer service.
Insurance rates are based on a myriad of risk factors like age, if you are married or single and even where you live. While these are factors you cannot control, things like driving history, type of vehicle you drive are factors that you can make work for you. Researching a vehicle before purchasing to find one that has low insurance rates or being a safe driver allow companies to offer you better rates than those drivers that insurance companies recognize as reckless or irresponsible such as a sports car or someone with an extensive history of speeding tickets. Being a responsible motorist means carrying adequate insurance coverage and not just purchasing the bare minimum. Surprisingly some extended coverage options are more affordable for certain customers than the minimum limit options.
At Ogden Insurance Agency, Inc., we provide a full range of auto policy solutions, from cost-reducing options that only cover the legal minimums to full coverage products with rental reimbursement and roadside assistance. Some of our most popular policy options are:
