Inc. Magazine Recommends Don Bury!Coping with commercial insurance renewals is rated as one of the least favorite jobs of controllers and business owners. It's the job that nobody wants, and most people try to have as little to do with it as possible. It's a puzzling, unmanageable can of worms. Most just want to forget about it, and hope that their broker takes care of them. Yet, the large, profit-dampening insurance bills keep coming each year.

You should be asking yourself the following critical questions about your commercial insurance policies if you aren't already:

  • How do you balance your dependence on your insurance broker with your need to avoid wasting money?
  • How do your perform proper due diligence?
  • What methods do you use to make sure you're not overpaying on premiums?
  • How do you ensure your coverage is what you think it is?
  • Is it wise to let a commissioned salesperson control every aspect of such a vital, expensive, and complex commercial purchase as insurance?

Insurance is a major expense you cannot ignore, one which can run 2% to 5% of company revenue -- or more. Insurance is also ridiculously complex, and at least as tricky as dealing with taxes. Did you know that over 800 variables go into a good set of insurance bid specifications (the document that brokers use to obtain quotes for you)? After all of the necessary commercial insurance policies you need to deal with, such as liability, auto, worker's compensation, and property insurance, you can easily be dealing with dozens of quoting insurance companies and perhaps several different brokers. There are over 100 different coverage types you must make decisions about, and you could easily spend days' worth of time on each of those trying to adequately understand them.

Most businesses have 5 to 10 different insurance policies, containing hundreds of pages of policy language no one understands. The fine print tells you that you are responsible for reading and understanding your policies. Yet, lawyers, judges, and juries cannot agree on what the language in your policies means.

In insurance, the stakes are high, and there is a minefield of opportunities for making serious and costly mistakes. It is a fact that even insurance brokers make mistakes every day. Many errors are made in selecting coverage. The insurance company you pick may end up insolvent. You might inadvertently fail to mention important facts to your broker that could affect coverage and quotes. Claims can be denied. There are literally hundreds of ways to overpay on your premiums. In fact, it is our experience that the vast majority of companies are overpaying by 20% or more on their total premiums.


It's hard to know who to trust when it comes to insurance. With taxes, you have aCooking the Books Article on Insurance Corruption helpful, objective, expert party to help you -- your CPA. With insurance, however, you are essentially getting your advice from commissioned salespeople. Even good, honest brokers with the best of intentions work in an industry riddled with dubious claims, conflicts of interest, policies driven by corporate greed rather than customer interests, and even outright corporate corruption.

To survive in this buyer-hostile environment, you need a system of sound buying practices and safeguards to mitigate the risk of wasting money or making potentially costly mistakes when selecting coverage. You need a dependable management advisor who can help you assess and evaluate what insurance brokers are telling you.
