It’s much easier to stumble upon a car insurance commercial on television today than it is to avoid one. The over-abundance of ads may leave consumers wondering what makes one company a better fit for them than another.
Enter Susan Hyrnyk, president of Auto Insure Direct and Archer Agency, partnered independent agencies located in Syracuse, with fully licensed agents ready to help consumers sort things out. Hyrnyk’s companies represent 22 different insurers of autos, homes, recreational vehicles and general liability.
The companies’ large roster of agencies ensure Auto Insure Direct and Archer will secure the most competitive rate possible. And being local means an actual person will pick up the phone when you call.
“We’re as personal as you want us to be,” said Hyrnyk. “We can do auto insurance over the phone, by email, by fax or person-to-person. What’s great is that if there is a problem or you have questions, we are close by and ready to help.”
The upward results and growth of Hyrnyk’s companies exhibit their success. Auto Insure Direct began in 2001 strictly as an auto insurance broker. Today, they service the insurance needs of homeowners and small commercial accounts.
“If we can take care of as many insurance needs for the consumer as possible, great,” Hyrnyk said. “Bundling services has certainly helped us grow Auto Insure.”
And while the ascension of Auto Insure Direct has been impressive, what Hyrnyk and her team have done at Archer is astounding. Since acquiring the company in 2010, they’ve quadrupled sales, even pleasantly surprising Hyrnyk, who has been selling insurance for nearly three decades.
“The jump was due to word of mouth and great referrals, which we like to think our service and hard work finding the best rates has something to do with,” she said. “When it comes to insurance for the consumer, it’s not something they are looking forward to buying, but it’s something they need. It’s our job to make it seamless, quick and enjoyable as possible.”
Auto Insure Direct is located at 1301 Burnet Ave., and Archer Agency is at 805 South Geddes St. For more information, call 463-1990.
