FAQs

What do Insurance Brokers do?

Insurance Brokers are specialists in insurance protection. They help you identify the risks and provide professional insurance advice, along with arranging insurance policies that suit your particular circumstances. With any claims, an Insurance Broker can assist you to ensure a quick and satisfactory solution.

Why should I use an Insurance Broker?

Wrong or inadequate protection can leave you financially and emotionally drained at time of a claim. As experts in insurance, Insurance Brokers can help you make sure the cover you get is exactly what you need and the price is always competitive. In addition, an Insurance Broker is your advocate. They work for you and act in your best interests.

What is the cost of using an Insurance Broker from Max Insurances?

It will cost you nothing other than a little bit of your time.

Is it cheaper to contact the insurer directly?

No, not at all. In fact, when you use an Insurance Broker, often your premium quote(s) may come out to be lower.  This is because an Insurance Broker has access to multiple Insurance providers on their panel and is therefore able to ensure your premiums remain competitive. By using an Insurance Broker, you can also get extra support and services.

If I already have insurance, can Max Insurances still help?

Yes. We provide a free, no obligation, review of your insurance to make sure that the insurance cover is right for you and the premium is competitive.

How do Iinsurance Aadvisers get paid?

Generally, Insurance Brokers receive commission from the relevant insurance provider for placing a policy with them.  Insurance providers see us as another distribution channel for business and are happy to pay us for securing the right insurance for our customers with them.  This is great because it means we do not need to charge our customers for our services and instead can focus on finding the best insurance provider with the best policy and the most competitive premium pricing.
