Why choose an independent insurance broker?

Access to a wider range of products – Insurance brokers have access to markets that customers cannot always use without using a broker, numerous insurers do not allow direct quoting and will only write a policy through an intermediary like us.

Professional advice and market experience – We bring a wealth of experience so can offer a range of added value and advice.

Excellent customer service – Our friendly, dedicated team of insurance professionals put the time in to deal with requests on your behalf. For example, things like filing a claim can be extremely time consuming. Many tasks are carried out on your behalf, claim negotiations for example are made as stress free as possible.

Security of data – We ensure copies of your documents are kept safe and comply with relevant data legislation. This allows quick transfer of documents if customers misplace their policy documents and appropriate security measures so that no unauthorised entities can access data.

A more personal relationship – We often meet clients to explain things more clearly in person to advise them properly of what cover they require. This ensures a more personal relationship with our customers who trust us to advise them.
