Steve was able to provide a very competitive insurance policy tailored to our specific needs. He gave the best advice and was very efficient. My partner is a smoker and she couldn’t believe the difference in price and how much higher her insurance would be, even so, she has now given up smoking. We will be back in contact in a couple of months’ time to sort Maxine’s policy and fingers crossed she doesn’t start smoking again! .

Highly recommended!

Dear Steve

Re: Household Insurance

I thought it was time to write to you to express my gratitude in your professionalism and advice over the last ten years or so that you have represented all of my business and personal insurance needs.

I value very highly your comments and guidance to make sure that my family, my home and my business interests have been correctly and efficiently insured over this period. In today's market where comparisons are only a click away, I cannot emphasise enough the benefit of having your knowledge at the end of a phone at my convenience.

I have recommended your services to many people over the years and will continue to do so.

Thank you once again.

Yours faithfully
Mark Haywood

I like to go to Steve to quote for all of my insurance needs. I feel I can trust him to give me the best deal available and make sure the cover is right. If, as is the case with my existing Professional Photographer’s package, he thinks he cannot find a better alternative, he will tell me so, and advise me to stay with that insurer.

I have recently needed to renew my house contents policy, which was already with Steve. The renewal was to show an increase from last year, but rather than just settle for that, Steve has sourced better cover for a significant reduction.

I feel confident that should I need to make a claim, I will be better served with Steve’s advice and support, than if I had found cover online.

Steve Allen is there for the big issues and the small problems. He does not just sell the policy but manages your expectations over and above his competitors

Hi Steve

Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know all the paperwork has now been received for my unemployment cover. I am delighted that I could obtain £3000 of cover at a premium that was far cheaper than anything I could find on my own. I hope I never have to use the policy, but given the uncertainty of the solicitor market at the moment it is superb piece of mind for me and my family.

I would like to thank you for your patience throughout, your attention to detail and overall level of service, something which is of great importance to me. I would not hesitate to recommend you to others when the opportunity arises.

Dear Steve

I just wanted to say a big thank you for sorting out our recent disaster with our Antique Grand father clock.
You have dealt with all the issues so very efficiently and have kept in touch along the way.
You provide a fantastic and prompt service and I have recommended you to my colleagues.

Thanks again Steve

Kind Regards


Dear Steve, Just a note to thank you for your advice and help in sorting out the problems we have had with flooding in our cellar. With your prompt guidance we were able to get in touch with an an organisation capable of cleaning up and repairing the damage to our property with great competence.

Further your support and advice helped us put together a full and relevant claim for our insurers. Your dealing with the details of the claim and liaising with the Zurich has resulted in a satisfactory settlement. Both Sophie and I feel very comfortable when dealing with you.

With many thanks,


May I add to Nick's words. I personally find there are no grey areas with you Steve. This is a comfort and reassurance for your clients; giving peace of mind, taking away the clients' anxieties in these matters. May I add Steve, you have warm manner and sympathetic attitude when dealing towards your clients.

With both our best wishes.


I had problem with my insurance company where the claim settlement was being delayed for internal processes. All communication with the insurance company was proving to be fruitless and stressful. It was getting to a stage where I considered taking it to the ombudsman inorder to resolve the situation. However I contacted Steve Allen who had brokered the insurance for me and he immediately took control of the situation. He personally contacted the insurance company and within the hour the situation was resolved with the director of the company personally contacting me. They informed that the claim would be settled immediately as all internal processes had now been completed and apologised for the delay and lack of information given to me.

Without Steves intervention I am sure this situation would not have been resolved so quickly.

Steve Allen is without doubt extremely customer focussed and provides a service that is unique within the brokering industry.

Dear Steve, I just wanted to thank you for all the support you have given me over the last 18 months I am very pleased I asked you to review insurances as you recommended better cover and saved me premium. Thank you once again.
