Things to consider when choosing an insurance broker
Using an insurance broker can make your experience a lot easier. You might be wondering how to choose the right insurance broker! Here are few things to consider when looking for the right insurance broker:
Experience and qualifications
Whether you’re looking to insure something personal or for your business, make sure your insurance broker has experience with that product. You should also make sure your broker has the necessary qualifications and designations. The exact requirements vary by province, but all Canadian insurance brokers require a license of some kind.
Most people want the people they work with to have similar values. Things like respect, integrity and customer service are very important, and should be a part of every insurance brokerage’s value statement. Ask your broker if their brokerage has a value statement they can share with you.
Make sure the broker and brokerage you’re working with has a good reputation. Do your research and check out their Google reviews.
