Coversure Poole: A High Street Insurance Broker

When I started in the insurance industry, brokerages were a fixture of the high street. By the time I opened Coversure Poole’s doors, offices like mine were becoming rarer, and now we’re the exception rather than the rule.

Many big-name firms have ditched offices and face-to-face service in favour of online-only offerings. I think this is a shame and a problem. Independent insurance brokers are specialists with detailed knowledge of complex financial issues that demand care and attention if they are to be adequately protected. Most people wouldn’t be happy getting legal advice via a website, so why trust one to protect your home, your business, or yourself to one?

The online world is amazing in so many ways. If I were looking for a cheap holiday, I’d use a comparison website every time. But would I entrust my business’s insurance to a fixed question set on an online form? No, I wouldn’t.

As an experienced property, business, and commercial insurance broker, I know that your needs and those of your business are as unique as you are. A ten-minute call or face-to-face chat with a client often reveals a world of risks – and opportunities to save money – that even the most intuitive and lengthy form cannot hope to reveal.

Insurance is about helping people protect what matters to them, and it’s about relationships. As your business grows, you move house or your circumstances change, you may need help and advice to ensure you have the protection you need.

This is why my brokerage has high street offices, so we can give people the personalised help they need when they need it. When customers call in to 96 Ashley Road, Poole, they know they’ll receive friendly, independent advice from a team of professionals who are keen to help.

“Friendly staff, approachable and no waffle! Saved me £400 on my PI insurance for my business could not be happier. John and his team are very knowledgeable about the industry and simple just a pleasure to do business with. In-fact all our commercial and domestic insurances are with Coversure Poole!”

What Insurance Policies Does Coversure Poole Offer?

We pride ourselves on our flexibility. And thanks to our relationships with leading insurers, blue chip firms such as Aviva, RSA, and Zurich, we can offer you a range of high-quality commercial vehicle, property, and liability insurance quotes.

We do have our specialisms, too. Perhaps it’s because we work out of retail premises and understand the challenges faced by high street businesses, that we’re particularly well known for our office and shop insurance cover, for example. These can be complex areas of protection because there are so many risks to be considered, such as:

• Public liability
• Employers’ liability
• Stock
• Business interruption
• Cyber
• Commercial vehicles

And that’s to name but a few. This is where being able to speak to someone face-to-face really comes into its own. Shop insurance in particular, can require careful thought, especially if you have expensive stock, are serving customers food or drink, or are providing a personal service such as in a barbers, a beauty salon, or a tattoo parlour.
Happily, we have the policies to cover a wide range of businesses, so we can find insurance protection for:

• Tattoo parlours
• Cafes and tea shops
• Shops
• Hairdressers
• Barbers
• Tanning salons
• Wine bars and pubs

“It’s a shame. You can’t give more than 5 stars… This company are like no other. John has helped me to deal with a previous insurer elsewhere and beat any quotes. Can’t recommend them enough and will only recommend them in the future.”

Coversure Poole: A Family Business

I’ve always thought of Coversure Poole as a family business – and not just because my wife Sarah is part of the team. To me, a family business is as much about shared values and looking out for each other as being related. I’ve known many of my team for years, and we’ve grown the company into the multi-award-winning company it is today.

Our shared values are applied to our clients as well as to each other. We’re all committed to treating our customers fairly, and we’ll always go the extra mile to find people the cover they need at a price they can afford.

It was really heartening to learn that we’ve recently been nominated for the Federation of Small Business Award for the ‘Best Family Best Business in the Southwest’. Being recognised as a great family business is flattering and a testament to the hard work that the team put in each day to help our clients get the cover they need.

So, if you’re looking for a traditional, high-quality insurance service from a team who cares about helping their clients, come and see us at 96 Ashley Road or call us on (01202) 801 782. We’re here to help.

“Don’t waste your time trailing the internet or asking insurance companies direct, for any of your insurance needs. As these boys and girls at Coversure Poole can get better deals with the right cover and that you can be sure of. I use Coversure Poole for my home, car, van, goods in transit, public likability, vehicle breakdown, pet, contents and buildings insurances. I have recommended them to people near and far and I know that the people that I recommended to them have and are still renewing their policies with them year on year. 5 STARS for sure. Coversure.”
