Whether you’re a young driver looking for insurance on your very first car, an experienced driver seeking the very best bang for your buck or a business owner looking to protect yourself and your business in the event of an accident, the task of sourcing an Insurance Broker can seem a daunting one. Insurance is, at its very core, a legal agreement between you and your insurer and this can lead to a lot of legal jargon or ambiguity being associated with getting your own insurance. This causes many consumers to feel overwhelmed and creates a negative image when one thinks of insurance.
However, this need not be the case. In order to illustrate exactly how an Insurance Broker can make the entire insurance process easier for you, we have compiled a list of our top recommendations for why you should be using an Insurance Broker:
Working for you
An Insurance Broker works on your behalf and you can safely say that your interests are also their best interests.
Professional and Fully Qualified
All Insurance Brokers must be regulated with the Central Bank of Ireland and must be accredited with the requisite qualifications in order to provide advice on insurance products so you can be assured that the advice you are receiving comes from someone with excellent knowledge, expertise and experience of the insurance industry.
More Choice in Less Time
By going directly to the insurer, you are only getting one policy quote at any one time. If you want to get a good sense of what deal is out there for you, you’ll have to canvas through potentially dozens of insurers before you have an idea of what a good deal is. As you can imagine, this can take a long time to do.
Insurance Brokers have access to advanced search engines that allow them to search through a multitude of industry options so they can find you the best deal in a fraction of the time. Why go through the hassle of consulting with insurer after insurer when someone else can do it for you in less time and at no cost to you?
Adding the Human Element
If you are insured directly with an insurer, you will be exclusively conversing with phone line operatives who deal with potentially hundreds of clients per day. They don’t know you, your policy or what you need and often times just want to get you off the phone so they can get to the next call. It can leave you with a feeling of detachment and may even dissuade you from ever ringing again.
A Broker is not a faceless, multinational corporation. They are made up of small teams who have in depth knowledge of their clientele and spend their day tending to whatever problems their clients are experiencing. They will deal with the insurer for you so that you never have to feel that sense of hostility again.
Do yourself a favour and take the headache out of shopping around for your next home, car or business insurance quote – talk your local Insurance Broker today. Insurance Brokers are your one stop shop to all of your insurance needs.
