Go grab your current insurance paperwork and call Larry, Jeff or Rob Cupp with Cupp Insurance and ask for an free insurance review. Not only is it completely free, no pressure, and educational, they’ll give you a free gift card for doing it!
My hubby and I have not had an insurance review since we moved to Polk City nine years ago, and even then we only reworked our homeowners policy. After reading a recommendation that everyone should do an insurance review every two years I dropped off a copy of our current coverage along with some details like birth dates and social security numbers (don’t email this information!) down on the Square. Pete and I met with Jeff Cupp to review what we have compared to what Cupp Insurance is able to offer. He went through line by line explaining what we currently have and explained what everything meant and let us know if it was an area where we may be over-insured or under-insured.
Cupp Insurance has been in business for 17 years, started by Larry Cupp at an office located in Urbandale, a few years later sons Jeff and Rob both joined the business. As all three of these great guys live in Polk City they decided to open a branch here about seven years ago and they love serving locally in this community. Cupp Insurance is located between Grinnell State Bank and Dottie’s Landmark on the opposite side of the Town Square from Papa’s Pizza.
One thing I really liked about working with Cupp Insurance is that as an independent insurance agency, they are able to shop many different insurance companies, unlike when you call a company such as State Farm who will only provide you with their own rates. Cupp Insurance will shop around for you to get you exactly what you need for the best possible price.
For Pete and I, the recommendation was that we stay where we are for insurance and ask for a few changes. Jeff said sometimes this happens, and they will always be honest with people and that they will never strip coverage to create a quote that appears to save someone money. On the flip side, he mentioned a quote that the office made this week saving the family nearly $800 a year! Just remember, it’s free and it never hurts to shop around. Find out about the areas where you may be over-insured and get recommendations regarding deficiencies.
I wholeheartedly give my personal recommendation, the experience was so comfortable, easy, and effective. You have nothing to lose and possibly money to gain. Call Larry, Jeff or Rob Cupp today. Note, although we worked with Jeff for our review we know Larry and Rob as well. You’re in good hands with any of these three great guys!
