Cheapest Insurance – Is it Really?

6th January 2010

The main reason that companies purchase coverage for their business is to protect their financial investments. So when someone asks what is the cheapest insurance I can find the question needs to be thoroughly looked at? In the case of coverage for your company it is important to remember what costs the least is not the best option.

What does this mean to your company? Having coverage that costs less is only a good thing if nothing happens. However if anything does happen there is a really good chance that the coverage you have will not cover it which will end up costing your company more money in the end. If you want to find the cheapest insurance then you should look for a provider that offers specialised coverage that will only cover exactly what you need without all of the frills of other policies.

It may seem like it is impossible for something to happen until it happens to your business and leaves you holding the bill. Your business can acquire the appropriate coverage and have a policy put into place that will provide legal help, financial help, and peace of mind for the company. Finding the lowest costing coverage is only a viable option as long as it is the lowest costing and covers everything your business needs.

The cheapest insurance should not always be the lowest price it should be all of the following:

● General Liability
● Bodily harm coverage
● Death coverage
● Property damage coverage (if property is involved)
● Employer coverage

If your coverage does not at least have these things than you are probably overpaying for your coverage no matter how little you are paying. Because if, and that is a big if because something will happen, something happens you will pay out an extremely large amount that will have offset any savings you had with this policy.

While searching for coverage that is cheaper than what you have or what has been quoted to you then your business needs to remember to look for these things. The cheapest insurance provider that you should be looking at should at least have an expert consultant group of people who can provide your company with advice and assistance whenever you need it. These people should clearly be there with your business’ best interests at heart. Because purchasing coverage that does not work is worse than having no coverage at all. It almost seems as though some agencies and brokerages are stealing from the pockets of businesses and abusing the smaller companies.

Your business should still have high expectations of any company they are planning on acquiring coverage from. Just because your company is on a budget does not mean that they should not be able to create your policy so that only the things you need are included and that is all your business is paying for. Flexibility, reliability, and value should all be considered along with whichever company will provide the cheapest insurance.
