As you may know, the team at Macbeth “love to talk” and, we’ve come across a re-occuring subject this year which is proving incredibly important to our clients and prospects; TIME!
A good networking friend of mine has a tag line which he uses regularly when describing his financial services business – “time has never been so valuable”, and this certainly seems to be the case for our clients, whether it relates to business insurance or private client insurance.
We all have to endure increasingly busy and stressful lives. Pressure at work and at home means that certain tasks remain on your ‘to do’ list which seems to just get longer and longer! Arranging or renewing insurance policies may well be one of those tasks? If it is, then you need a broker who will take the strain and let you get on with running your business, or your life.
Recently, I was introduced to a local plumbing and heating company who had never heard of Macbeth despite walking past our office on hundreds of occassions (note to myself – improve signage!!) He had a successful business but he was being weighed down with paperwork and wanted to reduce some of that burden so that he could focus on the business. Purely by chance, some of his commercial insurance policies were due for renewal shortly so he asked if I could quote? He had a public and employers’ liability policy and nine individual commercial vehicle policies, all due at different times of the year! Yes nine!
The following week, our client spent an hour with me in my office talking through the various insurance policies. I managed to obtain a more competitive quotation for the public and employers’ liability, with wider cover, saving him £500! I then set about trying to establish a motor fleet insurance policy to cover all of the vehicles. A few days later, I arranged cover for a new single fleet policy covering all the vehicles with wider cover and for the same premium as he was paying for nine individual policies. Now our client has one motor fleet policy, one premium, one renewal date and one set of insurance documents to file. He also has one local broker providing him with a first class, 24/7 service and, in his own words “I wished I’d met you years ago”.
