    "It took nearly a month to have our renewal finalised. Our broker never responded to our emails or our phone calls, and there was no communication in regard to a required amendment to our renewal proposal. This resulted in a premium much higher than what we were originally paying. Considering the lack of communication and that it took a week for anyone to even action our request, and that our renewal was not finalised 2 days out from its due date, I sincerely doubt that our broker bothered or attempted to negotiate with the insurer or find us the best deal."
