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?

IS IT TIME TO REVALUE YOUR JEWELLERY

THEFT OF HEATING OIL

The cost of heating oil has increased significantly recently, resulting in more thefts of oil from both domestic and commercial properties.

The first indication that a theft has taken place is often when the heating stops working.

Rate reductions are still possible for clients for property and liability insurance.  Abundant capacity and competition between Insurers are preventing increases, other than where there has been poor claims experience on individual accounts or within specific sectors.

DO YOU HAVE DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS INSURANCE?

IMPORTANT CHANGES TO EMPLOYERS' LIABILITY INSURANCE FROM 1ST APRIL 2011

We have since 2008 used Backhouse to place all our insurance risks, their unique approach to our tender process was one of the major factors behind placing out trust in Backhouse. They took the trouble to research our business carefully and brought to our attention areas of cover that had never been considered before.
