Time to Go Online and Get Control of Your Business Insurance

Insure Online Limited is excited to launch its industry-changing website that allows small business owners to buy, manage and renew business insurance and liability insurance online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Insurance industry research shows that small business owners struggle to see what value a traditional insurance broker in New Zealand brings. Insurance brokers’ service is characterised by messy forms, antiquated processes and delayed response times. Added to this are limited product offerings, a lack of comparison quotes and rarely any transparency around charges, such as substantial commission, volume sales bonuses and high policy transaction fees.

The launch of Insure Online’s new automated online insurance service is a response to the demand for a more transparent and simpler way to buy business insurance. Time-stricken small business owners can do their own research by reading our blog articles in our newsroom, get quotes and buy business insurance efficiently. Insure Online provides access on weekends and after hours to a website quote and buying service they can trust.

Statistics back up the trend towards online. 75% of New Zealanders purchase insurance through a traditional insurance broker or bank who uses paper, mail and telephone. In Australia, only 31% of businesses exclusively use traditional insurance brokers. 27% of Australian businesses are buying insurance online. To date, New Zealand’s business owners have been held back by the lack of internet options. This is changing with the arrival of Insure Online.

Insure Online’s initial business insurance product line-up is extensive. Their business insurance products include material damage insurance for business property, stock and contents, business interruption insurance, earthquake and other natural disaster protection. Public and product liability insurance, employer’s liability and statutory liability cover are also available online.

Insure Online is providing a simple, efficient and transparent service to business owners, enabling them to transact business in real time. CEO, Brendan Tobin said “we have created a website where small business owners can buy insurance in less than 10 minutes without having to pick up the phone or leave their office.” We confirm insurance cover immediately. Payment can be made directly and securely from a business bank account, debit card and credit card. We email insurance policy documents within an hour. “Our efficiency means we are able to pass on visible and real savings in time and cost to business owners”, he added.

Customers, such as retailers and office-based businesses, can take control of their business insurance and return to the website to make changes. They can update their insurance, buy more insurance cover and download copies of their insurance contract documents at any time. Our website allows customers to lodge insurance claims online and generate insurance certificates on the spot. We support our customers with a toll free helpline - 0800 456 780 from 7am until 10pm, 7 days a week.

Few small business owners have time to waste doing insurance the old way. These days, cost and time pressures on business owners are intense. Buying insurance online is easier, faster and always available. Business owners who are seeking a more convenient and simpler approach to their insurance should go to
