Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of working with a Kingston insurance broker?
Insurance brokers are very knowledgeable, work independently and will guide you in selecting the right insurance solutions based on your needs. They will help to evaluate the risks you’re exposed to and inform you of the products that will provide adequate protection at the most cost-effective rates.
What’s the difference between an insurance broker and an insurance agent?
An insurance agent works directly on behalf of the insurance companies. As a result, they can only offer insurance products from the insurance companies that they represent. They don’t work independently which means they don’t provide unbiased representation. Conversely, insurance brokers do not represent any specific insurance companies. They work independently and are obliged to work in the best interest of their clients. They will provide unbiased advice and find the best products to suit your needs and budget.
Do I have to pay to work with an insurance broker?
There is no fee involved with working with insurance brokers. Insurance brokers get paid by the insurance companies.
Which insurance companies do you work with?
To provide our clients with the best insurance solutions available, we work with all of the top-rated insurance companies across the country.
What type of coverage should my Kingston home insurance policy include?
Guaranteed Replacement Cost is essential when you’re buying home insurance. This determines how much you would need if your home sustained severe damage and would need to be rebuilt from the ground up. Water damage and sewage backup are also important since water damage is one of the most common sources of property damage.
Is my home-based business covered under my home insurance?
No, home insurance will not include coverage for a home-based business. If you do operate a business from your home, you’ll need to get additional insurance to cover your specific business needs. Business property insurance and general liability insurance are examples of common business-related coverages. Contact us today to learn more about protecting your home-based business.
Can home insurance cover my home daycare?
