This period is a fantastic time for reflection, looking back at what has happened in the past and then assessing, as we look forward to new and exciting developments in the year ahead. In the past year we have developed our offering for property owners and business clients around the country with both enhancements to the schemes we have in place but also with the general relationships we have with insurers.
Unfortunately this time of year is also a time for adverse weather conditions and higher burglary rates, with some crime statistics showing a 25% increase in theft during this period. Business premises are often unoccupied for longer during the festivities and homes are often fuller with new gadgets and valuables as gifts are exchanged offering plenty of choice to would be thieves. So a take a moment to review your insurance cover and prepare for the worst and hope for the best.
In December we have insured a real variety of properties and businesses around the UK as well as having the opportunity to go out and visit some of our clients to review their insurance covers mid-year. We recognise the value our customers hold to us and thank you again for your business throughout 2017, and hope you all have healthy, successful and a happy 2018.
All the best from me and all the team at Sharrocks.
