A broker should make your life easier. First, you’ll want to be sure the broker has other clients with businesses like yours. This means the broker is familiar with the construction industry and its risks and can knowledgeably advise you on the coverages. They should have experienced experts to handle both your insurance and Contract Surety needs. Additionally, the broker has access to the broader marketplace and can get quotes from a number of insurance companies. Your broker should serve as a resource, helping you review contracts and introducing you to certified risk managers who will partner with you to develop and implement an effective risk management program. Finally, a broker must be equipped to advocate on your behalf in case of a claim.
