Peter Sutcliffe is the Managing Director of J Bennett & Son Insurance Brokers and he’s just made a claim. Peter believes Insurance gets an undeserved bad press. He explains more to Jim Sherwood.

 

Shortly into our conversation, it’s abundantly clear that J Bennett & Son MD, Peter Sutcliffe, is passionate about Business Insurance.

“Insurance is vitally important to a business, if the worst should happen, no insurance or the wrong insurance could put you out of business. Unfortunately some companies don’t seem to take insurance as seriously as they should,” says Peter.

“It’s all very well going online and ticking the cheapest price box, but just how well are they really covered, what support do they get, and how soon will their claim be settled?” he adds. “We understand that price is important, but we feel real value for money is more important. We do all the hard work for our clients, ensuring claims are dealt with as quickly as possible,” he concludes.

Established in 1908, J Bennett & Son have a proud history. This local independent business is a successful operation built on trust. They still work with families that have been with the business since 1910. Peter is convinced this is down to the professionalism and personal approach they bring to their clients. Clients that are considered more like friends such is the long term relationship they have developed.

Fellow Director Mark Nicholl echoes Peter’s thoughts. “Our clients are precious to us, we want to build up a long term relationship,” he says. As Directors, we are always at the end of a phone, clients can call us directly at any time,” Mark adds.
