Choosing an insurance broker is a big decision. They are the people in charge of helping you protect the livelihood of your business, after all. Insurance can be confusing, but a good broker should be there to help guide you along the right path. In order to make sure you’re working with a broker that’s right for both you and your business, check out these 3 questions you should be asking your insurance broker.

1. What’s your “why”?

Every broker (and business) has a “why” – the reason behind why they do what they do. Your broker, regardless of their background, should be passionate about helping businesses. At Snellings Walters, our “why” that each of our brokers lives out every day, is to lead to inspire confidence so your potential is unleashed. If you ask your broker what their “why” is and they can’t clearly define their purpose in their work, it might be a sign that they aren’t the right broker for you.

2. How will you support my business and employees?

Part of being an insurance broker is providing ongoing support for your clients, their business, and their employees. Make sure you’re aware of how your broker plans on providing this support. The best brokers are the ones who are invested in educating you on what’s best for your business, and who act as a partner rather than viewing your interactions as a mere business transaction.

3. How will you determine the best coverage for my business?

Every business is unique, and the policies that cover it should be too. Finding the right coverage for your business involves many different factors such as your priorities, business size, budget, and of course, your values. When it comes down to it, your broker should be working alongside you to dig deeper than surface level to find out-of-the-box solutions that fit your business goals.
