Are you trying to decide whether you should go direct with an insurer or through an insurance broker? As you’re probably aware, insurance is designed to protect you financially when things go wrong and it’s vital to have the right package in place. While you can go directly through an insurer, using the services of an insurance broker offers a number of advantages. An insurance broker is an industry expert who acts on your behalf to find the best insurance cover based on your risks and needs. They are available to answer any questions you may have and also act on your behalf at claim time for the best outcome.
