4 steps to choosing the right insurance broker for your needs

Penticton expert shares how to get the coverage you need, when you need it

Finding the right insurance to cover all your needs can be easier said than done. With seemingly endless options, it can be overwhelming trying to decide where to go and what to choose.

So whether you’re in the market for new coverage, or you’re wondering if you’ve got the right coverage for your current needs, here’s how to find a broker that’s the right fit:

  1. Full coverage options – With so many insurance options, look for one that offers the full spectrum of coverage, says Gayle Clingwall, from Penticton’s Johnston Meier. From auto, home and marine coverage to personal, business and travel insurance, look for packages that are presented clearly and information is easy to digest, so you’ll leave the office with the right coverage for your unique needs.
  2. Knowledgeable & experience – Choose a knowledgeable and dedicated team. At Johnston Meier, for example, many of their brokers offer clients more than 15 years of industry experience – experience backed with a commitment to customer service that fosters longstanding client relationships. Those relationships ensure that your coverage changes as your family’s needs change, and that when the unexpected does happen, your claim will be processed as smoothly as possible.
  3. Convenience – Whether it’s time to renew or you need a brand new plan for your new home, boat or RV, convenience is essential. With two locations in Penticton, keeping your insurance up-to-date is easy, especially since Johnston Meier is open seven days a week. Both locations are conveniently located – visit in the heart of downtown or in Cherry Lane Shopping Centre.
  4. Safety protocols in place – Convenience includes offices that are open to the public, including walk-ins. Both Johnston Meier offices have the space to allow for appropriate physical distancing, with additional protocols in place for staff and clients, including Plexiglas separating work stations, frequent sanitizing of surfaces and hand sanitizer available throughout offices.
