Finding the Right Insurance Policy for Your Needs

Posted by  On April 19, 2022
Finding the right insurance policy for your needs

Are you looking for a new insurance policy, but not sure where to start? You know you want to get the right coverage at a price that works for you, but you also want to make sure you buy a policy with a company that will be responsive to your needs!

With that in mind, we’ve got some great tips for making sure you find the right insurance policy for you:

  1. Be clear on how much insurance coverage you need.
  2. Make sure your insurance company is easy to contact.
  3. Get more than one quote for insurance policies.
  4. Be sure to ask about what discounts you may be eligible for.

At Archway Insurance, we’re insurance brokers. Our job as insurance brokers is to help you find the best insurance policy for your needs. So, when you’re ready to start shopping for insurance, make sure you work with an insurance broker!

1. Be clear on how much insurance coverage you need

Figuring out exactly what your insurance policies will and won’t cover and how much insurance coverage you truly need isn’t the most exciting thing to do. However, it’s essential to ensure that you don’t end up with the coverage you don’t need, or worse yet, without coverage you do need!

That’s why it’s so important to talk to an insurance broker. They can explain to you in plain words—not fancy jargon—precisely what’s covered in most standard insurance policies and where you might need additional coverage. A good insurance broker can save you money by ensuring you get only the coverage required and avoid paying for unnecessary coverage.

2. Make sure your insurance company is easy to contact

Another thing to keep in mind when selecting an insurance company to buy a policy from is how easy they are to communicate with. Accidents can happen at any time, and the last thing you want is to have a policy with an insurance company that’s only available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday!

As well, not all of us have time to spend hours on the phone. Therefore, look for an insurance company that works with your lifestyle and offers services such as:

  • The option to pay bills and file claims online.
  • Customer service that’s available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Social media platforms and a strong Web presence where it’s easy to find general information.

Ask your insurance broker how they feel about the contact options of the insurance companies they work with.

3. Get more than one quote for your insurance policies

It pays to get a quote from more than one insurance company. This is where it’s convenient to work with an insurance broker!

Instead of calling several insurance companies and providing them each with the information they need to give you a quote, you can just provide your information one time to an insurance broker. Your insurance broker then does all the work.

They reach out to the insurance companies they’re associated with, provide them with your details, and get a quote—all without you having to lift a finger!

4. Be sure to ask about what discounts you may be eligible for

One way to ensure an insurance policy is right for you is that it’s the right price for your budget! When you get quotes for your insurance policy, it’s essential to ask if you’re eligible for any discounts. The following is a list of some of the most common types of discounts you can qualify for:

  • Combining more than one insurance policy.
  • No-claim history; that is, you haven’t made a claim recently on the type of insurance you’re looking for.
  • Special equipment; for example, you have winter tires for your car or an alarm system for your home.
  • You belong to a group or association. Insurance companies sometimes offer discounts if you are a member of an alumni association or an association such as CAA.

This is not an exhaustive list of the kinds of discounts you may qualify for. Be sure to ask your insurance broker about what kind of discounts they can help you find.
