Deal with your insurer directly—no intermediary
When you buy insurance from a direct insurer like Desjardins Insurance, you’ll deal with an agent who works for that company only. There’s no intermediary. If you need to file a claim, you simply call the company’s claims department day or night. Your claim will be settled faster.
Don’t worry about co-insurance clauses
Many of the insurance companies include a co-insurance clause in their contracts. What does that mean? It means that if you suffer a loss, your settlement amount will be reduced by a predetermined percentage.
Desjardins Insurance doesn’t use co-insurance clauses and you’ll get full compensation for a loss. This way, you don’t lose out in case of a partial loss.
Direct insurers like Desjardins Insurance don’t pay commission to intermediaries. And thanks to detailed segmentation, they can offer very competitive rates. If you have more than one insurance policy with the same company, you could also save on your commercial vehicle insurance and your property and liability insurance.
