Have you ever considered buying insurance via an insurance broker, or do you simply go direct to the insurance company, building society or bank to set up your insurance?

Although it can seem simpler and quicker to go direct, there are many benefits to using insurance brokers, many of which you may not have even thought about.

1. Save money

Insurance brokers always aim to find their clients the very best price for their insurance, and are able to compare the entire market to find the cheapest options. They’ll also make sure that you get the most appropriate level of cover for the price, so you won’t end up with cheap insurance that doesn’t adequately protect you.

2. Get market knowledge

Since a broker has access to a wide range of insurance products and services, they can accurately compare and recommend insurance based on current market service standards to make sure you’re getting a great deal.

3. Keep things simple

All that insurance jargon can be difficult to understand unless you’re in the know, but a broker can explain things clearly and make the complex simple.

4. Professionalism

Brokers always provide Statement of Suitability documents to outline their recommended policies, and this professional opinion allows you to make smarter decisions about your insurance.

5. More choice

When you go direct to an insurer, you’re limited to their range of products and services. A broker has access to the entire market, giving you much greater choice without all the hassle of contacting each insurer individually.

6. Stress-free claims

An insurance broker will handle all claims for you, minimising stress and inconvenience on your part if you have to make a claim.

7. Impartial advice

Brokers aren’t biased towards individual insurance providers, meaning that you can trust them to find you the most suitable policy.

8. Long-term relationships

Insurance brokers work with their clients on a long term basis. This means that they’ll get to know you properly and will understand your every need to find the best policies. They’ll know your background and history, and you won’t be passed from one person to the next like you often are when dealing directly with insurers.
