It is not just a piece of paper

A Broking success story: Commercial

‐ Advising a client on the correct level of cover.

Commercial insurance

We received a call from one of our existing Motor Fleet clients asking us to quote their non-motor policies. We established that they had been running with a policy purchased from an online non-advisory broker many years ago when the business was considerably smaller. This left them woefully underinsured, and in the event of a claim, the client would have been vastly exposed.

We have a saying at Flint Insurance – ‘it is not just a piece of paper.’ Yes, the business had cover in place for the required limits, allowing them to get on site; however, it simply did not provide the correct level of cover. The Insurers would have quickly established that the policy was not fit-for-purpose.

Nobody expects to have a claim, and people often take the position of “It will never happen to me.” Still, when a serious claim occurs from the most innocuous situation, you start to wonder why any business owner would take this chance.

It is not just a piece of paper; it is your protection in the event of a claim, ensuring everyone involved, both third parties and your own employees, are adequately protected.
