Why Longfields should be your company’s go-to insurance broker

Home » Why Longfields should be your company’s go-to insurance broker

When it comes to buying agricultural, commercial or personal insurance, tapping into the expertise and experience of the Longfields team can be a smart move.

If you're running a business or need cover for high-value personal assets, finding an insurance policy that meets your needs can be challenging and time consuming. It's not just about the headline price. It's about making sure that you're adequately covered and that you won't find yourself less than satisfied if you need to make a claim.

There is an easier solution: get in touch with Longfields. As an insurance broker, we can offer you a range of benefits which speak for themselves.

Personalised service
As a broker, we aren't tied to any one insurance provider. That means you get choice, flexibility, price competitiveness and impartial advice. We work with an extensive network of trusted insurance companies, so we can offer you a policy that's perfectly tailored to the needs of your business, whether you're running a farm, an SME or a large corporation. We can also provide bespoke solutions for private clients, with cover for all kinds of valuable assets, from art and antiques to property, private yachts and more.

You'll also benefit from continuity. Your dedicated account manager will get to know you and will be with you all the way, from discussing your needs through choosing your policy to making a claim if necessary. So, you don't have to worry about dealing with a call centre or being passed from one department to another.

Save time and hassle
The insurance marketplace is increasingly complex and finding the right policy can take a lot of effort. Why spend time comparing cover and benefits when you can leave that to a broker and focus on running your business or looking after what really matters?

Get the right cover
As a broker, we start with your requirements, not ours. For example, you may have unusual or complex business activities or high-value, high-risk assets. That means we can find you a policy that delivers exactly what you need.

Whilst, of course, price is an important factor and we can be very competitive, in equal measure, we spend time to thoroughly understand your business to ensure your policy reacts should you suffer a loss.

What's more, your policy does not have to automatically renew year on year. You will have a dedicated Account Manager that can come and visit you on your premises, or telephone you if you prefer, to carry out a full renewal review in advance of your policy expiring.

Peace of mind
If the worst happens and you need to make a claim, it's reassuring to have the support of an insurance professional to guide and support you through the process. We pride ourselves on putting excellent customer service at the heart of everything we do. Insurance claims can be complex and we use our expertise and experience to ensure your claim is settled as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Remember, you will always have your dedicated Account Manager at your disposal.

The Longfields promise
We're committed to delivering high-quality, price-competitive insurance solutions tailored to your needs, along with the highest standards of personalised customer service.
With over 50 years' combined experience, our friendly, proactive team offers specialist knowledge and experience in agriculture, commercial and private client insurance.

A bit more about our team
In our agricultural department, members of the team are also closely involved in community and charity work, giving them an insight into the unique challenges facing farmers in today's world. For example, one of our Farming Account Managers, Jill Girling, volunteers for the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI), sitting on the committee and helping with the organisation of events and fundraising activities. Our Agricultural team have also completed mental health training with YANA, which supports those involved in farming and other rural businesses affected by stress and depression.

Of course, farming is not our only area of expertise. Our commercial team has extensive knowledge across a range of sectors including, but not limited to haulage, construction and property owners, manufacturing and wholesaling, retail….. the list goes on!
