Having returned to UK after 20 years living and working in Florida I found great difficulty in finding Insurers to cover me since they would not give me any credit for my Safe Driver record in the USA. However when I visited Routen Chaplin I found a much more positive and personal service and was offered a suitable policy quickly and at a very competitive rate. Since activating the policy I have had cause to make a change and was dealt with in the same personal, courteous manner even though there would be no financial benefit to Routen Chaplin. I have no hesitation in recommending them for any Insurance requirements you may have.
I am writing to wish you all success and hoping all goes well in your coming move to new premises. Thinking about this change makes me reflect on my association with, and thoughts on,"why a Broker" and "why this broker"? It began more than 50 years ago with Mr Don Chaplin selling/persuading me (and other members of the rugby team) that a £1 a week with profits insurance was a good investment. It was, as I discovered many years later. Ah Don! I wish I could have bought a hundred of those policies. Sage advice followed through the years on both insurance and a wider view in guiding ones life. As we progressed, forming a company in 1983, Routen Chaplin took over both the business and personal insurance elements for us.
Summing up, and answering the questions in the first sentence. Why? These days with the advent of the internet we can ourselves question and compare. What does that give us? Choices. What do we get from a broker? Choices. Advice, an Overview with knowledge of our affairs, suggestions which can be compared, proactive contact regarding insurances and most of all, when things go wrong, help in processing claims and standing up for the customer. Why this Broker? It has done all this and more for us, for over 50 years. Can't be bad! Best of luck for your next 50.
