Daily Iowegian

DES MOINES — Allied Insurance is pleased to announce that Amy Gonnerman, Sandi Kauzlarich and April Kirkland, agents of North Side Insurance in Centerville, have recently achieved “On Your Side” certification in accordance with the company’s rigorous program standards.

“We’re pleased that North Side Insurance has achieved On Your Side® Certification,” said Jay Larsen, vice president of sales for Allied Insurance. “By becoming certified, North Side Insurance has demonstrated their commitment to going the extra mile in helping meet each customer’s insurance needs.”

To be considered On Your Side® Certified, agents must commit to stringent customer service training and standards. This makes the agent a valuable resource for consumers who want to know what coverage is available to them without spending extra on coverages they don't need.

To help consumers get the most value for their insurance dollar, Allied’s On Your Side® Certified agents offer On Your Side Reviews. Available to everyone, these reviews involve looking at the consumer’s current situation, discussing any recent or expected life changes, and then reviewing current insurance coverages to make sure the consumer is properly protected. The reviews also provide an opportunity to identify potential ways to save on insurance products.

“In today’s economy, it’s more important than ever to take time to review your current insurance needs,” said Amy Gonnerman. “By getting to know you and your situation, a good insurance agent can not only make sure that you are properly protected should something bad happen, but they can also make sure that you’re not paying more than you need to be.”
