Home Emergency Cover Hits The Market
As people’s lives increasingly revolve around the home, we’re seeing more risk of day-to-day emergencies such as boiler failures, water leaks or even pest infestations.
“This is the first step of a major product development drive for us, and as managing general agent (MGA) we will be responsible for looking after customers the length and breadth of the UK, 24/7. We know from long experience that the primary consideration when offering a home emergency service like this is speed of response.
“As well as working with a team of experienced claims managers and a nationwide network of over 4,000 rated and checked specialist trades people – which handle 1 in 4 of all UK home emergency claims – we are also excited that our market-leading technology gives home emergency insurance policyholders the option and convenience of telephone, online or mobile-based claims management too. Customers can make unlimited fee-free call outs and have direct access to a wide support network including 97 gas safe registered companies.”
