Retail Insurance

Whatever size of company you run, it is essential that you protect your business with the most comprehensive insurance to give you complete peace of mind. This will allow you to concentrate on what you do best - working with customers and developing your own business.

At Backhouse we have the expertise to understand the different requirements of all types of business trades and can therefore create an insurance policy specifically tailored to your needs.

Individual policies can be arranged on a stand-alone basis separately for each class of business, or can be arranged on a package basis under one main policy.

Wholesale Insurance

At Backhouse we understand that running a wholesale business presents a number of challenges. With over 50 years experience we know business insurance inside out and understand that you may be looking to only insure certain parts of your business. With a desire to understand your needs we take pride in arranging policies specifically tailored to your needs, if you have a legal requirement for certain cover we will tell you.

No matter the risk we at Backhouse have the experience, knowledge and ability to exceed your expectations. Why not put us to the test?
