Mark Capstick, Carmark

It is now Carmark' s ninth year in business and since meeting Jamie Illingworth around 7 years ago, I have chosen to place all my insurance business with Illingworth McNair.

Initially my motor trade policy was with Bollington based in Cheshire. Jamie switched the policy to Illingworth McNair at the end of year two, to an identical policy with the same provider, and saved me nearly £400 ! The reason is service. It is second to none from start to finish.

Since then it has become clear that when an Insurance policy has been offered to you via Illingworth McNair, a lot of time & effort has gone into the selection, that it meets with your requirements and that it fits into your budget.

Having peace of mind that should the unthinkable happen, then you have the right level of cover in place and more importantly a company that will look after you every step of the way.

Keep delivering the great service Illingworth McNair !

David Etherington, Carpet Care (North) Limited

As a company, we have now been using Illingworth Mcnair about 5 years. We have found Illingworth Mcnair welcoming, friendly and very professional in the manner they go about their business.

With TV advertising, leaflets coming through the door every day, cold calling from all parts of the globe, all offering cheaper insurance on virtualiy everything that has to be insured, we couid have changed at any time if it was just down to cost.

We have stayed with Illingworth Mcnair because of the excellent service they have provided us over the years. We have had issues with 3rd parties over the years, and each time we have been able to seek the correct advice we needed. This either has been a quick phone call, or by calling into the office. All issues have been resolved stress free, and in a very detailed, and professional manner. This is a great credit to Jamie and his team. Well done to all at Illingworth Mcnair.

We have no hesitation in recommending Illingworth Mcnair to anyone, either in business or family and friends.

Ben Mitchell, The Stores Department

The Stores Dept is a new and vibrant business supplying a vast range of tools, fixings and consumables to many trades and industries. We hold a significant amount of stock and we recognise that much of it will be of interest to thieves.

Unfortunately, as you know, we were recently the victim of a well planned theft. Within just four minutes on a quiet Sunday evening, our premises were broken in to and our stock of about 70 premium brand power tools was taken. I spent most of the following day cleaning up and arranging for new doors and locks to be installed.

In a hard and competitive market, the last thing I needed was to spend a lot of time pursuing our insurance claim. It is with this in mind that I am writing to thank you and your colleagues in the insurance industry, for the exceptional standards of service that you provided. My business partner sent you a text within an hour of the break-in and I understand you were at your desk at 9 o'clock that evening, advising the insurance company of our impending claim and arranging for a visit from the loss adjuster. After just ten days I have been advised that our claim will be honoured to our satisfaction and I understand a cheque to cover our losses will be with me shortly.

If ever I needed convincing that the best way to insure our business was via an insurance broker, rather than one of the many 'cheap as' web sites, our experience over the last couple of weeks has done it. I can not imagine ever receiving such a prompt and efficient response to our claim, had we decided to insure with an anonymous call centre.

I would be grateful if you would pass on my thanks to your colleagues at Cunningham Lindsey and Aviva, and of course, I would be delighted to recommend your business to any of my friends and colleagues.

Shaun Wealleans, SUMO

Many thanks for your help and support following the recent fire claim we suffered.

There are many companies selling insurance but the true test of your insurance provider is when a claim occurs. The advice we received from John Williams your loss adjuster made a significant difference to the settlement of our claim. Without this valuable support we would have struggled and the effect on our company could have been catastrophic.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Illingworth McNair Insurance Brokers and would say your competitive advantage is the claims service you provide.
