PART 3 OF 4 PART SERIES - SHOPPING FOR INSURANCE, THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE UGLY
While it’s not particularly ‘sexy’ to most people to work in insurance, I love it. I get to talk to so many new and interesting people every day and this is one of the main reasons I enjoy it so much.
I also get to go ‘shopping’ a lot. Working as an insurance broker I get to shop, compare and provide advice on personal insurance products from a variety of insurers.
Options to meet your situation
If you contact a call centre from one insurance company, they can only talk about their product. If you contact a broker, they work with multiple insurers and can talk about a number of options with the aim of finding you the best product at a fair price.
I will take the information you have about your situation, work with insurers and usually within a couple of days be ready to discuss multiple options with you. Any policy I discuss or recommend to you would be matched to your situation and concerns and most importantly meet your expectations at claim time.
Good advice that meets your individual needs
Yep, that’s what a broker does. Shocked? I didn’t think so, but it’s always nice to know exactly what a broker can do for you and with years of experience in the industry brokers only like using reputable companies, with strong claims paying ability which should also put you at ease with regards to any insurer we would recommend.
As an insurance broker, my job is all about finding the best solution for you, sometimes a broker may not be able to help such as changing insurance companies if you’re in the middle of building or renovating a home, but if you do have a chat with me you will understand what options you have and steps you can take. Like I said earlier, it’s not sexy but I wouldn’t have it any other way. And it's certainly an easier way to shop for insurance.
