Moreland Insurance: helping your business thrive, not just survive

Maurice Logie, Director at Moreland Insurance, explains how the longstanding company is able to aid franchises through a variety of first-rate services, as part of one the world’s largest brokers.

At Moreland Insurance Brokers, we would like to help you fulfil your business’ New Year’s Resolutions. We can ensure you have the right insurance product at the right price for your franchise, thus giving you invaluable peace of mind. We are a firm of Insurance Brokers that specialises in all aspects of franchise insurance and in addition we are the only brokers that are brand partners of the BFA.

Moreland Insurance Brokers started trading in 1964 and we deal with all kinds of insurance from personal lines, to non-profit organisations and business insurance. Franchising is, by nature, very diverse and the insurance solutions that we come up with will vary according to your specific needs. At Moreland’s, we have access to all major UK insurers and, as part of the Willis Network, we can tap into the resources of one of the world’s biggest brokers.

Just like the Franchise Manual and Agreement, your insurance requirements have to be checked regularly. This review is something we would do for your franchise and would pick up any changes in legislation, your business activities, new risks identified and any claims experience issues that have to be addressed.

While not all insurance is compulsory, some are certainly advisable to ensure that the franchise has in place the cover to reduce risks and there are many insurance products that can be tailored to your franchise and we can look at this for you.

We are pleased that we have many clients that can speak on our behalf and here are just a couple of examples: Ginny Williamson, Hometyres: “Customer service is something we strive to excel on as a business, so when we are looking to purchase anything – it’s the first thing that we notice. Moreland certainly delivers on this. So far the experience that our franchisees have encountered with Moreland have been nothing short of excellent. The icing on the cake for us is the price – not just marginally, but significantly better than our previous insurance renewal quotes. Great prices and great service – no messing. A winner for us every time.”

Louise Harris, Franchise Director of Wilkens Chimney Sweeps: “I am sure that every client thinks they are special but I am delighted to say that from the very start of speaking with Moreland I felt that I was special. As a franchisor, many business insurers just couldn’t guide me on what cover our business ought to carry – it’s not a ‘standard category’. Moreland quickly understood the dilemma and guided me, fulfilling our requirement at a reasonable price. It was a delight to speak to friendly human being too! I subsequently had to make a claim on my insurance (laptops and cats don’t mix!) and called Moreland to ask for help with this. They provided what turned out to be excellent advice and help with my claim. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them – and indeed have already!”

We would love to be able to offer your franchise this service; please contact myself on 01698 456 500, or email us at enquiries@morelandinsurance.com to discuss how we can take this forward for you. At Moreland’s we have been offering top quality insurance service for the last 50 years, as we enter another year of trading please let us deliver at least one of your business New Year Resolutions.
