BATHURST, NB – The Chaleur region and Northern New Brunswickers are about to get a new and progressive choice for their home and auto insurance! Kent & White Insurance, a Northern NB based Insurance Brokerage, has been chosen as the first broker partner for CAA Insurance in the province.
With most Canadians continuing to trust a broker for their insurance needs, CAA has begun transitioning from a direct-only sales model for their insurance products, to working with select broker partners. After a successful launch into the broker channel in Ontario, and Nova Scotia, the company is continuing to expand into New Brunswick, with the appointment of Kent & White Insurance.
After a thorough review process that lasted months, CAA recognized the value of this progressive Broker partner. Kent & White’s President, Brian Schryer, says the team is excited to bring this offer to the region, “We’re thrilled that out of all potential brokers in New Brunswick that could have chosen as their first partner, CAA chose us.” He goes on to say, “It’s a great feeling to know they trust our team to uphold their customer service values and pass that on to New Brunswickers.”
CAA’s move into the broker channel in the New Brunswick insurance market is especially timely given the numerous question marks surrounding insurance rate increases in the province. Above and beyond providing highly competitive rates to Atlantic Canada, CAA stands out from the crowd thanks to their dedication to giving back – a quality that is closely aligned with the core values of Kent & White Insurance.
“CAA provides extremely competitive rates, excellent service, and very closely aligns with who Kent & White is at our core” says Schryer. “They’re a company that you can feel good about doing business with. They also provide significant group discounts for CAA members. CAA Insurance isn’t just for CAA members, but often the membership discounts are more than the cost of the membership, so it pays for itself.”
Kent & White, who began their operations in 1946, has grown to service thousands of personal and commercial clients throughout Atlantic Canada from one of its two locations in Bathurst and Edmundston. With a focus on comfort, the company continues to strive to provide the best customer service in the industry, as well as focuses on giving back to the communities in which they serve.
The Canadian Automobile Association, commonly known as CAA, is a non-profit federation, founded in 1913, of eight motor clubs across Canada, providing roadside assistance service, a range of auto touring and leisure travel services, insurance services, and member discounts.
