As an independent commercial insurance broker we are not limited to one direct insurer or underwriter. We have a panel of UK insurance partners that allow our specialists to search the business insurance market, to identify insurance to suit businesses or individual requirements.
Through a combination of some of the most well-known insurers and some more specialist niche insurers, we can source and compare business insurance quotes, helping customers by tailoring their policy to exactly what they need.
We constantly review our insurance panel to ensure we are offering the widest choice of terms possible, and also check our rates across the market to stay competitive. Our specialist consultants are able to search multiple insurers at the same time and can usually arrange cover over the phone immediately and provide documentation the same day.
Why Choose The Insurance Octopus?
At The Insurance Octopus, we offer a truly personalised service to make certain you are getting the best levels of service and the commercial business insurance you need to be protected. From initial contact through to payment for your policy, you can always talk to the same dedicated consultant.
We can offer a range of finance options, including direct debit to ease the payments, and cover can be arranged instantly over the phone in most cases. If we can’t arrange cover immediately we will always keep you fully updated as we progress your quotation.
Once confirmed, your business insurance documents can normally be sent out immediately via email meaning you have your business fully protected straight
away – simple.
When it comes to your business insurance renewal date, don’t worry, we will do all the hard work for you, searching the market again to find the best terms and simply present you with the options.
