Working with a broker—a winning strategy!

Selling a premium is the easiest thing in the world. Properly analyzing and targeting your needs in order to provide top quality service, helping you enjoy the best value for money, explaining the intricacies of the product you’re purchasing, answering your questions, being there for you when you need it―that’s what takes time and effort. And it’s what you get when you work with an insurance professional.

Advice, help and peace of mind

Are you shopping for a new car or thinking about buying a condo? Have you just acquired a new house or changed all your home furnishings? If you want the right coverage to protect the things you hold dear, not to mention sound advice, value, great prices, and peace of mind, it’s a good idea to enlist the services of an insurance broker. Their primary mission is to provide the information you need and offer you the best available rates.

Dealing with an insurance broker means working with a professional who understands your needs and can address them at every stage of your life. A broker is always there for you, especially if something bad happens. They’re often a comforting presence, as many have discovered. As Paul Désiré, Director, Personal Lines Insurance at Univesta Insurance points out:

Horror stories about claims that go wrong are unfortunately something we’ve all heard about in the media. When the phone rings and it’s a client calling to file a claim, it’s important that right from the get-go they feel that we’re working for them, with them, and that we’ll be with them at every step of the claim process and when the insurer follows up on their file. What does that mean in practice? It means being present, answering questions, reassuring them, promptly returning their phone calls, and providing sound advice. It can also entail taking steps to get them an interim cheque and even bringing it to them. As a broker, it’s our job to ensure that each claim, each story, ends well and to the client’s satisfaction.

Looking out for your best interests

Whether you’re buying insurance or making a claim, your insurance broker is always there to provide quality advice and assistance. But their role doesn’t end there—because your best interests are at the heart of what they do, they stay abreast of the best offers to help you get the right coverage and save money.

Entrusting a broker to protect your belongings―be it your car, recreational vehicle, home, condo or cottage―is just smart. By bundling your auto and home insurance, you could save, well, a bundle.

Talk to your broker to learn more

Do you have questions about your insurance contract? Have your needs changed? Remember, your broker is your most valuable advisor. You can call them anytime, and they’ll guide you and help you get the best possible deals. A win-win situation all round!
