Important Information

 

Why use an insurance broker to purchase insurance?

An insurance broker can save you time, money and worry. Just like an accountant or lawyer who provides you with professional advice, based on years of training and experience, a qualified broker can do the same with your insurance.

When arranging insurance, many people take shortcuts without seeking proper advice, understanding the fine print or considering whether they are getting value for money. Often they are disappointed when their insurance doesn't come to the rescue.

Whether it's business or personal insurance, brokers provide advice and assistance to make sure you are properly protected.

Using an insurance broker doesn't necessarily cost more. Often it costs less because brokers have in depth knowledge of the insurance market and the ability to negotiate on your behalf. A broker will also explain your policy and any special situations you need to watch out for. Furthermore, a broker is obliged to advise you of fees charged for services provided to you.

You will benefit most by developing a close business relationship where the broker understands your future plans, the associated risks and how you like to do business. 

An insurance broker's foremost duty is to his or her client. An insurance broker works for you, not for the insurance companies.
