Insuring via a Broker versus Direct Insurers
These days we’re bombarded by ads suggesting we go direct for insurance, begging the question what is the role of the broker in today’s insurance market. We look at some of the benefits of using a broker.
Brokers have access to a variety of insurer’s products and can compare various product offerings and advise on best service provider, best cover rate from the most suitable provider.
Similar to an accountant or solicitor, based on years of experience and training a broker can provide the same professional advice to you on your insurance.
Unlike a direct insurer, a brokers duty is to his or her client. Brokers look at building customer loyalty and long-term relationships and spend time getting to know and understand the needs of their customers.
Peace of Mind
In the event of a claim and or general queries, brokers guide consumers through the claims process and effectively manage the claim on the client’s behalf. In the unfortunate event of a claim, having a broker in your corner is vital. Dealing with claims handlers or large global insurers is difficult whilst trying to manage the fallout of a claim.
Brokers take away the burden and stress of searching the market and handling claims. The broker is the one who takes the responsibility on your behalf.
