AMPLE INSURANCE BROKERS
Whatever the case, the AA reminds: “People may argue that the costs of insurance are simply too high. Our view is that the costs of non-insurance are higher.” Safety awareness group, Arrive Alive reiterates: “South African vehicle hijackings and road crash statistics provide more than enough evidence to the importance of vehicle insurance.” Ample Insurance believes that each client has their own individual insurance needs and, in an effort to reduce the number of uninsured drivers, offers a range of different options to suit everyone. “We take what we do very seriously,” says Stoffberg, “and subsequently we are always looking for products in the market that will suit our clients’ changing needs. “Our aim has always been to offer everything a client could need around insurance. Hence the name Ample -
more than enough!” The company has built a reputation in the industry for being trustworthy, innovative, professional, connected, reliable, modern and giving personal attention, and over the years Ample has built a customer base that spans all the country’s provinces. With economic uncertainty dampening the appetite for growth from many of the international companies that are headquartered elsewhere in the world, opportunities for local players with regional knowledge and a finger on the pulse are widespread and Stoffberg is keen to take advantage. “We haven’t been overly effected by any economic slowdown and we are not concerned. I believe South Africa has so much to offer and so many opportunities for young entrepreneurs. “We are light and nimble and can
easily adjust to changes in the market. I believe this sets us apart from our competitors. “I believe that in general people want value for their hard-earned money, regardless of the state of the economy. As a broker, we have the benefit of being able to offer the customer many different products from different insurers as opposed to a direct insurer which can only offer one brand,” she says. A HISTORY OF QUALITY SERVICE Ample Insurance started its life back in 2007, pre-global financial crisis and before recent legislations that have disrupted the industry came into place, and 10 years later it is a very different company but committed to the principles on which it was founded. “We are a very fast paced innovative company,” says Stoffberg. “We adapt together with our clients’ needs.
