Red Flags to Avoid When Shopping for Insurance Brokers

Here at St. Clair Insurance Brokers Inc., we understand that you want to protect your home, vehicle, business, and other important assets. While there is no guarantee that these things will never suffer any damage, the right insurance broker can make sure that you are protected from the financial consequences of a loss. To help you in your search, we have put together a list of red flags you should avoid when shopping for insurance brokers.

  • They Don’t Answer Your Questions- If you’re going to be relying on someone to protect your important assets, you need to be able to ask them questions and get clear, timely answers. When searching for insurance brokers, pay attention to how they handle your questions–if they avoid answering or talk in circles, you should continue your search elsewhere. You can count on us at St. Clair Insurance Brokers Inc. to answer all your questions promptly and in an easy-to-digest way.
  • They Make Requesting a Quote Overly Complicated- Another thing to watch out for when comparing insurance brokers is an overly complicated process to request a quote. When you contact your broker to request a quote, you deserve to get a solid answer in a timely fashion, without having to fill out an endless array of forms in order to do so. While our team at St. Clair Insurance Brokers Inc. can’t promise that you’ll never have to do any paperwork, we have the necessary experience to get all the information we need with as few questions as possible.
  • It’s Hard to Reach Them- Finally, good insurance brokers should always make it easy for you to reach them. If a broker never seems to be in the office to receive your calls, or won’t reply to your messages, then you should move on to one that actually values your time.
