NWT Business Insurance FAQ

What factors determine my Northwest Territories business insurance quote?

Unlike auto and home insurance (where rates are regulated), business insurance is manually quoted. This means your broker has more room to negotiate your cheapest price. Our brokers understand a low risk business or home based business shouldn't be lumped into the same price bracket as a more complex venture. We get you cheap, discount insurance by having you pay for only the coverages you need.

How small of a business can I insure?

No business is too small. We provide cheap insurance for home based businesses such as photography, independent consulting, individual contractors and beauty consultants. We can insure online businesses that distribute inventory from a basement, garage or storage unit. If you have a business, we can provide the insurance for it.

How large of a business can I insure?

Just as no business is too small, no business is too large for Surex Direct to provide coverage for. Your personal broker will be able to find a policy to match your growing needs.
