As pool and spa businesses look to maintain standards but trim overheads, a leading insurance provider is launching a bespoke service tailored specifically to the water leisure sector.
IHN has worked with clients in the pool and spa markets for many years, building knowledge and expertise in water leisure insurance requirements.
Already working in partnership with several other niche trade sectors, IHN offers this groundbreaking new facility in association with Pool & Spa Scene magazine and with the endorsement of well-known pool and spa industry stalwart, John Green. John has no hesitation in recommending fellow pool and spa companies to try IHN for an insurance quote.
SAVES TIME AND MONEY
“IHN has saved me and many of my associates, I have introduced, both in and out of the pool industry, several thousands of pounds, from here to Scotland,” says John of Midlands-based J W Green Swimming Pools.
“IHN is a national player, so wherever you are situated, it is not an issue. “Be it cars, vans, houses, lettings or company cover; when it comes to insurance matters, it has to do exactly what it says on the tin,” John emphasises. “If you are ever unfortunate enough to have to make a claim, it needs to be with minimal hassle and form filling. There is enough stress at the time of a break in, without long drawn-out claims procedures,” he adds.
John recently had to make a theft claim and all went through with minimum input by himself as IHN handled all matters inhouse, from claim to payout. “IHN offer me a very personal service, searching the market for me, saving me hours of my time and coming up with very competitive prices,” John says.
In conjunction with one of the UK’s major insurers, IHN has developed a flexible, tailor-made solution to meet the needs of the differing specialisms within the pools and spas industry sector.
John explains: “This new product, developed specifically for the pool and spa market, seems as though it is going to tick a lot of your boxes, whether you are a one man band, a pool shop or have a fleet of engineers on the road.
“On the fleet front, try IHN for a block policy on your vehicles, J W Green Swimming Pools did and saved several hundred pounds. “One policy, spread payments at a fixed cost over the year, really helps, especially with the seasonal changes in our industry, adds John.
For over 40 years IHN has been providing insurance advice to trades, industries and professions across the diverse business range for which the UK is renowned. Personal insurances have also been arranged, including home, motor and travel. IHN also offer specialist cover for ‘high net worth’ individuals too. IHN has developed specialist insurance facilities for freemasonry, metal recycling and vehicle dismantlers. These facilities have all been arranged with major UK insurers, have been highly successful and have provided extended benefits for their business groups.
“Working together with those in the pools and spas sector, we are confident that we can deliver win, win results for each of you and for your sector as a whole,” says Elizabeth Foster, IHN managing director.
“Making a claim tests the advice given by your professional adviser and at a time when you and your business is put under added pressure it is important to know that your insurance broker will be available and skilled to handle your claim from first notification to settlement,” adds Liz.
“IHN has a very experienced claims manager with a background which has seen her working in insurers, loss adjusters and brokers – she has the complete skill set! “Our reputation for high standards of service and professional advice has resulted in an average client retention rate of 94% – we are very proud of this!”
“The professional development of our team is a priority and in 2012 IHN achieved the prestigious industry status, Chartered Insurance Brokers. This accolade, awarded by the Chartered Insurance Institute, is held by less than 1% of firms in the insurance profession.”
Understanding the skills and risks associated with the pool and spa business is paramount to IHN’s insurance package. As standard, the insurance will cover elements previously only available on request and some extras too. Preferential premium instalment facilities are also available.
For full details please visit the Pool & Spa Scene stand at the UK Pool & Spa Expo in Birmingham and at Spatex in Brighton.
