Hettler Insurance Expands Partnership with Auto and Home Carriers
New Appointments Increase Auto Carriers to 13 and Property Carriers to 20
Today, Hettler Insurance Agency announced it is appointed to quote State Auto Insurance Company and Hippo Insurance. Hettler Insurance is now an authorized agency with 13 different companies for vehicle policies and 15 for property (homeowners, renters, condo).
“We like to add insurance carriers that benefit our customers whether it’s a better claim experience, discounts or policy features, “said Ron Hettler, President of Hettler Insurance Agency. “There are few other independent agents in Lubbock that quote auto and home policies from such a diverse number of active carriers.”
According to LubbockInsurance.com, Hettler Insurance has a large number of property carriers, placing them in a preferred position when offering Home Insurance compared with many other local independent agencies. The same is true for auto insurance.
State Auto Insurance Companies
Despite the name, State Auto is available for both auto policies and homeowners. Bundle discounts are available, and a driving telematics program can deliver up to 50% off. Known as the State Auto Safety 360 program, participation discounts and save driving habits are all rewarded with lower premiums.
The company has an A- (Excellent Rating) from A.M Best for financial strength and performance.
A newer player seeking to disrupt the home insurance market is Hippo. Billing itself as “smarter home insurance”, Hippo policies are often less than traditional homeowners even without an auto bundle option.
Several unique features make Hippo a recommendation for certain homeowners. Major appliances (HVAC, fridge, washer/dryer) are covered for repair and replacement even if the cause is mechanical. Better coverage is also provided for electronics and discounts are available for smart home alarm systems and cameras.
Hettler also recommends Hippo depending on your home age and type. While several major carriers won’t write policies for older homes with asbestos, old roofs or other structural issues, Hippo could be an option. If you’ve struggled to get approval for a home insurance policy contact Hettler today and save money with a quote from Hippo!
Other recent additions to our lineup include Mercury Insurance and Acuity Insurance for auto, home and business policies.
