When to go insurance shopping

1 min read


Is it time to go insurance shopping? If your insurance policy is set to renew soon and you’re thinking about shopping around for a new insurance company, now’s the time to start exploring your options. However, if you’re on the fence with your decision to make a switch, there are a few ways to know when it’s time to shop around.

To save money

Whether it’s car insurance or home insurance, sometimes it seems that everyone you know pays less than you for his or her insurance. Although it can be time-consuming, saving money is one of the top reasons for shopping around for new insurance. Even if you’re just wondering if your coverage is costing too much, it’s time to explore new options to confirm if your rates could be better.

To get better coverage

Maybe you’re interested in obtaining coverage that your existing insurance company doesn’t offer, or you’re not sure your current coverage truly gives you the protection you need. When shopping around for new coverage, it’s best to compare similar coverage plans and deductibles to make a fair comparison. Quotes will certainly vary per insurance company, which is why it’s best to obtain quotes from several companies prior to signing on the dotted line of any policy agreement.

To obtain better service

Poor service and/or disappointing insurance experiences are another top reason for insurance shopping. If you have had a recent experience with an insurance company that has left you dissatisfied, it is definitely time to consider a new insurer. An experienced insurance broker will be able to recommend an insurance company that has earned a reputation for excellent customer service.

Brokers do the shopping for you

Since insurance brokers deal with multiple insurance companies, they can save you time and money by doing all of the comparison shopping for you, taking the stress and hassle out of the equation. With the expertise of an insurance broker on your side, you are certain to find a policy that meets your coverage and budgetary needs. In addition, your broker can act as your advocate and provide guidance and advice should you ever need to make a claim.
