There are a number of differences between an insurance broker and an insurance agent or company

We are not a single insurance company’s insurance agent – instead, we work for you, providing unbiased and objective advice, pro-active solutions to understand your needs and position you to financially survive any insurable event.
Using Ease Insurance Brokers over an insurance company’s own insurance agents delivers the following:
  • Superior coverage for you and your family.
  • Insurance company-agnostic advice on all your insurance and related matters.
  • Personalised insurance solutions from up to 8 insurance companies.
  • Complete evaluation of a risk management strategy for your assets.
  • Professional ongoing management of your insurance programme
  • Support and advocacy for your insurance claims.
Understanding insurance and the reasons for choosing a broker can be complex. If you’re still on the fence about how Ease Insurance Brokers are the right option for you, give us a call. One of our team will be happy to assist.
