American Family Insurance - Brian Manning Agency, Inc.
Insurance is one of "those things" that you have to have. If you drive, there should not be an option. My husband and I were assigned to the Brian Manning Agency after our agent left. Because we believed in American family, we decided to stay with Brian. Great decision!! Brian and his staff bring something that in my opinion is as valuable as his expertise; this something is "Time". They are always ready to not only answer questions, but to do the necessary research to resolve problems and offer addition insights. In my opinion, my insurance needs are important to this agency. Brian is an excellent insurance agent, but where this agency truly shines in Customer Service. Thank you Brian, for your knowledge, time, and efforts spent on my behalf.

Stacey Schell Newland - State Farm Insurance Agent
We moved our vehicle policies to Stacey Schell Newland - State Farm Insurance six months ago. We also were able to ADD renter's insurance and still pay less for all the policies combined than what we were previously paying for just our vehicles with another company. When you need help or just have a question, the staff at this office is QUICK to answer and always goes above and beyond the call of duty. Something that is so rare these days. Their service, quality, and great prices are unbeatable. I strongly recommend them.

Combined Insurance
Wow - can't say how much I appreciate my agent and Combined paying out my claims! Payout was fast and I got more than I expected! My parents were policyholders, I am and now my children. I recommend Combined to anyone I meet.

Tips & Advices
Insurance agents will often try to "upsell" on various extra products that may be useful for certain people, but are generally excessive for the average consumer. Stick with basic plans that cover as much as you need without any additional costs. For example, if the annual cost of your auto insurance is 10 percent or more of the total value of your car, drop all but the most essential coverage. This is especially applicable if the car you drive is older and could be replaced with savings. Otherwise, you are paying for insurance that will never actually benefit you in the event of a serious crash.
Yes. Even after you've chosen a plan and started paying into it, consider looking around again when it comes time to renew the policy. Consider using an independent agent when searching for a new insurance policy. While traditional agents can still find a good deal, independent agents can choose from a variety of providers and tailor your coverage to your specific needs. The Internet has also made comparison shopping easy. Potential customers can often get free quotes online very quickly.
Send your insurer a claim form for each beneficiary in the plan, as well as a certified copy of the policyholder's death certificate. With the proper information, life insurance claims are generally straightforward. Problems may arise if the policyholder has died within two years of opening the policy. In this case, an attorney may be needed to settle the claim.
In the case of damage, take pictures of the affected area as soon as any safety or health emergencies are resolved. Take note of what happened and all the relevant circumstances and report to your insurer as soon as possible. If any of your possessions were damaged, use an inventory of your important assets and make note of this in the claim. Once an adjuster has made their own report, review it for accuracy.
If you're involved in an accident, you need to call the police right away and have them document the situation. You can file a claim upon obtaining the police report. It's also a good idea, if possible, to take your own notes to record: what happened before the accident, the date and time, traffic signs in the area and road conditions. Also get the other driver's name, address, license plate number, and insurance information. Even photos taken with a cell phone camera can help the claims process. Once you have this documentation, call your insurance company right away.
