When looking for a good Portland insurance agent, it can be helpful to understand the different types of agencies and how they operate. Car insurance agents in Portland are either independent (non-exclusive) or exclusive. Both types of agents can insure your vehicles properly, but it’s important to point out why they differ because it can impact the type of agent you choose.
Agents of this type normally can only provide a single company’s rates such as State Farm or Allstate. They generally cannot place coverage with different providers so they really need to provide good service. Exclusive agents receive a lot of sales training on their company’s products which aids in selling service over price.

Independent Agencies or Brokers
Agents in the independent channel are not required to write business for one company so they can write business through lots of different companies and possibly get better coverage at lower prices. If you want to switch companies, the agent simply finds a different carrier and the insured can keep the same agent.
When searching for an agent, you should always get quotes from at least one independent agent to get the most accurate price comparison.
