The Benefits of Using an Insurance Broker



Whether you're looking for a basic car insurance policy or a complete suite of business insurance coverage for your business, you need to find the right insurance that will keep you protected. There are a number of ways to find insurance coverage, but how can you get the insurance coverage that's best for you?

An independent insurance broker is your best option when it comes to finding insurance coverage. Here's why:

  • Shopping around for insurance yourself can be absolutely bewildering. An insurance broker is an expert when it comes to insurance - and they can do the shopping for you.
  • Not only is an insurance broker an expert in knowing what to shop for and where to shop, they can negotiate on your behalf. They know the insurance market and when you're getting value for your money.
  • An insurance broker offers a relationship. This means that you get personal advice and support. You have an insurance expert "in your corner" with your best interests in mind.
  • An independent insurance broker is there for you when you have questions or concerns, and they can offer helpful advice and recommendations while still leaving the decision ultimately with you. The difference is that an insurance broker will supply you with better options, and explain the pros and cons of each one in a way you can understand.
  • You don't have to worry about insurance, because everything is taken care of for you. You can tailor your plans based on expert advice and a clear explanation of the insurance options from your insurance broker.
  • Unlike an agent, an insurance broker deals with many companies, not just one, and they can thus find you the best value.
  • Insurance brokers are extremely well qualified, and must meet very high professional standards. A designated insurance broker is required to file regular financial reports to the Registered Insurance Brokers of Ontario, the governing body for all insurance brokers in the province of Ontario.
