The ‘I’ Word
22 March 2019
Exhibition season is upon us at Hazelton Mountford, we do 6 shows a year, 5 of which are in a 3 month period. The more we do them the more we notice how people see the word ‘INSURANCE’ and immediately look away. So the question is, why avoid the subject of insurance? As a business you HAVE to have it. You wouldn’t ignore your home or car insurance so why allow your business insurance to take a back seat? The same way you look for the best employees to support your company, or the best quality car for your money, why not search for the best Insurance Broker to protect the thing you’ve worked so hard for… Your Business.
Why you should read on:
Let’s face it, talking about Insurance is the last thing many Business Owners want to do, but let us explain why we are writing this and what we can do for you and your business. We could start by telling you what a great local Insurance Broker we are, and how the clients are at the heart of everything we do – but you have heard that before right?
Insurance has become a ‘cheap’ search. With TV and the internet often telling you that one company guarantee’s to match your premium and another company promising to beat it. Yes, maybe with personal lines such as house hold or personal car insurance, the simplicity behind going online, typing in some information, and getting the cheapest quote out there is worth your while. However, with your commercial insurances, this is not always the case. The same as buying a new car, you wouldn’t just look for the cheapest model to fit your needs and hope it does the job. It’s an investment, something that will last you, allow you get the best for your money, and protect you if anything were to happen, and sometimes having to spend an extra bit of money can get you a lot more than you had before. But you have to look in the right places. You wouldn’t shop for a BMW online, add it to your basket and pick it up in a week. You go to a showroom, look around, see what model you like, add some extras if you want them, test drive and then make the payment.
Choosing a new broker is just like that. We come and meet with you, review what you currently have, we look at what we think you need, put in our recommendations, let you know if we think important cover is missing and provide you with the best premium and level of cover we can at renewal.
As busy Company Directors and Business Owners the last thing you want to be doing is using your valuable time trying to speak to different insurance companies to get the best price, filling in forms and going through what can often feel like never ending paperwork. As a Broker, let us do the hard work for you so you can get back to the most important thing to you, running your business, with the peace of mind that everything has been taken care of. By negotiating directly with underwriters and claims departments, we can ensure that you get the right policy, at the right price and claims are paid.
We are open market, which means we choose the right insurer for you, not the right insurer for us. Many big blue chip firms will only support certain insurers to earn preferential commission rates, but that means you have to ask, are they really working for you and who is paying for that extra income?
A little bit about us:
We are the only registered Chartered Insurance Broker in Worcestershire. We care about what we do and the clients we look after. We have an amazing team of Directors, Account Executives, Account Handlers and a Claims Department who are dedicated solely to our clients. We work on a personal basis and like any relationship if it’s not right, it won’t last very long. We understand how important your relationships with your clients or consumers are, and that is exactly how we feel about you, our clients. With us what you see is what you get. The Exec that comes out to meet you on your first instance is who you will deal with through everything. We don’t have the ‘main men’ that attend the first business meeting and then disappear into the night after the renewal has been processed and the business has been won. We are with you every step of the way.
Like you, we are an independent business and know what it’s like to start from nothing and build a successful company, we understand the highs and the lows and we are always wanting to support our clients in whatever comes their way as a business owner. Why not see what we can do for you – we are really keen to develop a working relationship with you and would appreciate the opportunity to review your current insurance offering. If we can’t compete, there is absolutely no fee or financial implication for using our services.
Society today talks a lot about ‘self care’, taking time for yourself and making sure everything is right with you. So give your business a little ‘self care’. Take some time out and review the one thing that will protect your business if anything were to happen to it, your insurance.
