The insurance services we provide have been the core of our business since we opened in 1982. We have vast experience in both fields of general insurance which are personal lines insurance ( such as motor & house insurance products) and commercial lines insurance (commercial insurance products).
The importance of getting the right advice when purchasing an insurance product is more important now than it has been for some time. There are a number of reasons for this – the main one is that insurance companies are scrutinising every claim made and are refusing to pay out on claims if the correct cover was not in place at the time of the event being claimed for. For this reason it is very important that you receive the correct advice and purchase the right product for your particular needs and unfortunately this service is not offered by some other insurance companies especially “direct line” or “online” insurers.
Below we have listed some of the most popular insurance products that we offer and also insurance definitions so our customers will have a better understanding when reading their policy booklets or discussing the purchase of an insurance product.
