Why Use A Broker
With so many insurance companies in the marketplace, which one provides the best value for money and right amount of cover for you? It's easy to be overwhelmed and take short cuts without understanding the fine print and whether the policy is in fact suited to your specific needs.
Qualified Practicing Insurance Brokers (QPIBs) will save you time, worry and money through their knowledge of the benefits, exclusions and costs of competing policies on the market.
Their understanding of the insurance market means they even have the ability to negotiate competitive premiums on your behalf. They can also arrange and place your cover, and will often provide advice on how to make the most of your insurance budget.
A Qualified Practicing Insurance Broker can offer you:
- An Audit of your specific insurance needs;
- Negotiation of competitive premiums on your behalf;
- Professional advice about the most suitable package;
- Value for your money; and
- Time savings.
