Why use a specialist taxi insurance broker?

By working with specialist taxi insurance brokers, you’re much more likely to get a policy that is tailored exactly to your particular business needs. Still not convinced? Here’s why you should rely on specialist taxi insurance brokers for your taxi insurance policy.

You’ll save time.

Time that most of us don’t have to research what general insurance providers have to offer. By working with expert taxi insurance brokers you will eliminate the process of extensive research into different providers and what they can offer you. By working with a specialist insurance broker, they will be able to do all the leg work for you. Your taxi insurance broker will be the middleman, searching for offers from insurance providers that will be suitable for your business.

And you’ll save money.

If you use a general insurance comparison site you may not actually be given the cheapest premiums as providers may have to add extra amounts to their rates when hosted on comparison sites. When using specialist taxi insurance companies you’ll find that they will be much more likely to offer competitive rates, and equally, the standard of the policy will not be affected by the competitive prices available.

Clear communication and understanding.

As a taxi driver you will require certain elements of your policy to apply directly to your trade that not a lot of insurance providers will know instantly and without a reminder. By using a specialist taxi insurance broker you can rest assured that the person you are talking to has had prior experience working with customers who need taxi insurance, and therefore has extensive knowledge on what you will need as part of your policy.

Tailor-made policy.

A taxi insurance policy will never be one-size-fits-all. That’s why a general insurance provider may not be the best fit, as they may not be able to provide you with all the options you require. However, a specialist taxi insurance company should be able to provide you with not just insurance for your taxi, but public liability insurance, taxi office liability insurance, and legal expenses cover, depending on your needs. Choosing a specialist taxi insurance broker means that you can work with the experts to build a bespoke policy that applies specifically to your business’ requirements.

Optional extras.

When you use a specialist taxi insurance brokers you’ll also find that you are able to add in extras where you need them. If you run a taxi base office, you may want to consider adding on contents and building insurance to your policy, and instead of taking out another policy with another broker you should be able to purchase at the same time as your taxi fleet insurance policy for a combined policy that covers everything your business requires in terms of insurance.
