“Approximately one year ago my husband and I decided it was time to change our insurance company.  Having had Allstate for almost 25 years we felt as if we were not getting what we were paying for.  We switched to Schunke Insurance and could not be happier.  Not only did we save money, we also got more coverage for less.  I now recommend Schunke to all my friends and family.  Some have already switched!”

- Kimberly Petko

"It was the best choice I ever made. Not only did I save money by making the switch but the agency has the best customer service. I had been with one of those large companies for years and every time I had a question I would have to go through those automated services. When I call schunke insurance I get a real person on the other end and I can sleep a little better knowing that I am covered properly in case anything were to happen. I will be recommending Schunke to all my family members."

- Sandra Korbut

"I had just started the process of making my dreams come true by opening up my own Business and didn’t even know where to begin. I currently had my personal auto insurance with schunke so I immediately called them to ask if they could help. They were very patient with me answering all of my questions and explaining my policy in simple terms so that I could understand. With all the crazy cost of opening a new business it was reassuring to know they helped me save money during a time when all costs seemed to be going up and the friendly personalized service we get keeps me coming back year after year."

Why use an insurance agent?

Generally speaking, when you buy direct you cut out "the middleman" - a retailer who buys wholesale from a manufacturer or distributor. They mark up the product's price and sell it to you.

In this day and age there are plenty of "direct writer" insurance companies out there. These companiess "cut out the middle-man" by selling direct to you, rather than through an agent. However, while you may think you are saving money by going direct, that typically isn't the case.  Moreover, by dealing direct with an insurance company, a consumer takes on a level of risk that they may not realize even exists.
