The top 15 reasons you should be using an insurance broker
Here are our top reasons — in alphabetical order, not necessarily in order of importance — why you should use an insurance broker to help get the right coverage for you and your family.
1 – Access to a wide range of options – One of the biggest advantages of using an insurance broker is that unlike an insurance agent — who typically is employed by one insurance company — a broker works with multiple insurance companies. This is how you’ll get the best coverage for your needs, regardless of which company offers it.
2 – Advocacy – If you ever come to a roadblock when dealing with your insurance company, your broker can be your ally. They’ll help you sort things out and make sure you get the coverage you’re entitled to.
3 – Automated underwriting – Many brokers use automated underwriting to streamline policy approvals. This makes getting coverage faster and easier.
4 – Claims assistance – Need to file a claim? Your broker can help you navigate the claims process and get you the proper payouts without delay.
5 – Cost savings – Your broker may have access to discounts that you might not be aware of, help you locate policies with lower deductibles, and negotiate lower rates on your premium.
6 – Cost transparency – Your insurance broker will assist you in making well-informed decisions regarding insurance by taking the time to explain how your premium is determined and guiding you through the expenses related to your coverage.
7 – Customized coverage – Your life is different from everyone else’s, so of course, you’ll want a broker who will take the time to understand your circumstances and tailor auto coverage to satisfy your specific situation.
8 – Data analytics – A good broker continuously analyzes trends to identify potential risks. This allows them to provide you with a policy that makes the most sense for you.
9 – Expert and objective advice – As experts in their field, brokers can educate you on the ins and outs of insurance. Since they keep up-to-date with the latest trends and regulations, they’ll provide you with the most current and accurate information and give advice on how to minimize your risks. Plus, they work for you — not a specific insurance company —so their advice is unbiased and focused solely on your needs.
10 – One-stop-shop – Insurance brokers offer a one-stop-shop for all your insurance needs. They can help you find coverage for your home, car, boat, sports vehicles, health — and even your business — all in one place.
11 – Ongoing support – Even after you’ve purchased your policy, a good broker will make themselves available to answer your questions and help you make changes as your coverage needs evolve.
12 – Risk management – Your broker should provide you with tips on how to reduce risk based on your driving habits and lifestyle. Over the long run, this will help you cut down on your overall insurance costs.
13 – Technology-driven solutions – Like everything else, insurance buying is faster and more efficient because of technology. You’ll get online quotes, your documents will be handled electronically, your claims processed automatically, and customer service will be omnichannel — through email, chat, text, or by phone. Some even have mobile apps to speed things up.
14 – Time-saving – Shopping for insurance can be time-consuming. With an insurance broker, you don’t have to spend hours researching and comparing policies. Instead, the broker will do the work for you and present you with the best options for your needs. More time for you to enjoy life rather than worry about “what-ifs.”
Wait, there’s one more!
Here’s the most satisfying reason to work with an insurance broker:
15 – Peace of mind – Working with an insurance broker can provide peace of mind. You can rest easy knowing that you have the right coverage for your business or family and that you have an insurance expert on your side in the event of an emergency.
