Hi, I'm Tim Shaw, and I am proud to be considered one of the longest active and Premier Independent Agent Insurance Companies in South West Florida. Our employees have over 200 combined years of experience in privately protecting the personal assets of our clients “Putting Protection First.” This method first identifies your individual risk characteristics and then we develop and recommend a plan to protect your valuable possessions at the lowest possible quote, with the best matching insurance carrier to your needs. Putting Protection First, then looking for the best price, is the smart way to shop for your home insurance.
Seems simple enough right, well not so. You see the Direct Writers, like Geico, Progressive, State Farm and Allstate, have convinced shoppers that it's all about the lowest price. We have all seen the commercials, "Give me 15 minutes, and I will save you 15%." They try to convince you that price is the only thing that matters and to buy insurance as if it were a TV or a refrigerator. That strategy has cost hundreds of people to lose thousands and even hundreds of thousands of savings and lifelong accumulated assets in one afternoon at the courthouse.
Buying home or auto insurance should not be so casual, and should be considered a serious experience. Every time you or anyone backs your car out of your driveway, all of your assets (stocks, bonds, collections, real estate) are riding in that front seat with you. Make one little mistake and you can lose them all. It only takes a willingness on your part to look at the small print, and to know the right questions to ask to avoid. Also, not jumping at the cheapest home insurance quote is also critical to avoid missing coverages that you might need when something bad happens. The best place to start though is to find an agent with years of experience who has a reputation for honesty and integrity. You will get honest advice that will be in your best interest, not the agent’s pocketbook. It does require a little planning, but that is where we come in. Ignore this part of the process, well that is hazardous and very dangerous to your financial future. In the end, is a little bit of savings worth the extra risk to you and your family?
I have a formula that can help you thru the process of buying insurance;
ONLY use Independent Agents. They are “your agent” not an agent of their captive employer or insurance company (i.e. State Farm, Allstate, Geico).
ONLY use an A+ accredited BBB agency. They have zero consumer complaints and are held to a higher degree of integrity and honesty in their practice.
ONLY use a salaried agent. Eliminates self-interest that will put all the focus on you and your needs.
As an independent agency, we qualify on all three counts. We represent ALL of the carriers writing home insurance in Florida, so there isn't a need to shop around and get three quotes. We will give you all 21 of them. With Identity Theft growing at three digit levels, you should be concerned about how many places of business you give out your personal information. Here at Tim Shaw Insurance, we protect your identity with compliance to the HIPPA and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
Lastly, after 4 decades we believe we know what most of you want;
You will have an agent that will answer your calls AND/OR return your calls same day.
A salary (not commission) paid agent, that will always put “protecting your assets” ahead of self-interests..
A well trained and knowledgeable agent that will answer all your questions and provide a hassle-free experience.
We only use reputable companies that show up at your door with their checkbook when you have a claim.
Competitive, acceptable pricing by finding you the “most value for the lowest price.”
We practice what we preach. Honesty, Integrity and Exceptional Value.
You will get all this and more at Tim Shaw Insurance; we have been providing this type of service for 41 years, and it’s where we hang our hat.
Tim Shaw, CIC
