Become an Insurance Agent

Online Registration

Whether expanding your portfolio of opportunity, or offering insurance services for the first time, we can discuss the individual requirements with any insurance broker, letting agent or independent financial advisor and provide a range of insurance products and services that will meet the specific demands and the expectations of customers or clients of any of our insurance agents.

We are committed to the development of close working relationships with all our insurance agents, and pride ourselves on an excellent client support service designed to help grow your business.

At Rentguard we provide two types of partnerships:

  • If you are a business authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) you qualify to set up a full agency with us by signing an Agency Agreement;
  • If you are an estate or letting agent, property management company, independent financial advisor, mortgage or insurance broker, pensions advisor or legal professional we would welcome you as an introducer.

Register online now or follow the few steps below to get you started:

Step 1 Get in contact with our client services team on 0208 587 1060
 
Step 2 After a brief discussion, we will send you our marketing pack to introduce ourselves and provide you with a better overview of our business
 
Step 3 You will then receive a follow-up call from an assigned account manager
 
Step 4 If you are satisfied with our products, services and the agreed commissions – you will then be requested to sign and return to us a non-binding and non-committal agreement with us
 
Step 5 You will be assigned your own unique agency number and password, which will allow you to login to a registered agents area where you can check and track the status of all your clients’ quotes and policies as well as print and email them their policy documents.
 
Step 6 You are now an insurance agent and ready to offer landlords, tenants and homeowners insurance and start earning your commissions! But please ask for any marketing support you may need – we will be more than happy to assist you.

Rentguard is able to provide marketing support to all of our insurance agents upon request. We will also create a white-labelling quotation web link system for registered agents, which will allow them to provide an instant quotation to their customers directly from their own companies’ websites.

Rentguard put the emphasis on relationship building and cost and hassle free set-up procedures. Upon registration you will be allocated your own dedicated Account Manager who will help to support your brand and build your business. Apart from a simple and straight forward agreement with Rentguard, you will NOT be requested to commit to any minimum level of business with us.
