Why an Independent Agent?

Why an Independent Agent?

Not all insurance agents are the same! Choosing the right one can make a big difference – in price, service, and value.  

With other agencies, you get one company that sells one brand of insurance. With an independent insurance agency like the Eric L. Ash Insurance Agency you get choices.

Why? Because independent insurance agencies, like the Eric L. Ash Insurance Agency, represent a number of different insurance companies, and can compare coverage and prices to find the best possible value for your individual circumstances. As independent agents, we are members of the Pittsburgh community, and we’re committed to doing business face-to-face and being your advocate in times of need.

Serving communities throughout Western Pennsylvania including Belle Vernon, Bethel Park, Elizabeth, Finleyville,  Irwin, Jefferson Hills North Huntingdon, Pittsburgh, Pleasant Hills, South Park, Venetia and more,  and the state of Pennsylvania here are a few reasons why the Eric L. Ash Agency should be your first and last top when looking for insurance.

  • We work for you when you have a claim.

  • We are not beholden to any one company. This means you don’t have to change agencies as your insurance and service needs change.

  • We are your consultants, working with you as you determine your needs.

  • We are value-hunters who look after your pocketbook in finding the best combination of price, coverage, and service.

  • We offer one-stop shopping for a full range of products, including home, renters, auto, business, life, health, and retirement plans.

  • We periodically review your coverage to keep up with your changing insurance needs.

  • We are committed to customer satisfaction – it’s the key to our livelihood.

  • We treat you like a person, not a number.
