Business Insurance from Hastings broker Chris Knott Insurance

Business Insurance

Up-to-date commercial insurance advice from your local broker

Whether you are a self-employed Tradesman, a shop or a large organisation, the continuing success of your business after serious property damage, injury to employees or the public, will depend upon the adequacy of your commercial insurances.

As a business, you'll want to make sure you have the right cover in place and, unfortunately, we regularly encounter serious gaps in new clients’ previous cover because their provider has not done their job properly.

Free Business Insurance Healthcheck

Our FREE Insurance healthcheck promises to support your business by casting an expert eye over your needs and activities, making sure your cover really is suitable. We'd like to get to know you, taking the time to understand all the activities you undertake.

This can either be done face-to-face or by phone and email – the choice is yours.

You'll then receive a no-obligation quotation based on our discussions. We want to work with you and put together an insurance solution that provides complete protection for your business in a cost-effective way. Of course, we'll be looking to help you reduce your premiums wherever possible.

Let us do all the work, meaning you don’t have the hassle of searching around on your own or just accepting your renewal year-after-year, without review, because it’s easier.

With our experience across a wide range of industries and with businesses of all sizes, you’ll benefit from Risk Management guidance, sound and impartial insurance advice and, if it comes to it, full claims assistance.

To find out how best to protect your business, you should call us now on 01424 205009 and speak to one of our Commercial Insurance experts. Alternatively, complete a few details online and we'll contact you:

Commercial Vehicle & Fleet Insurance

If you'd like to reduce the insurance bill for your company vehicles you should speak to Chris Knott at renewal - you might be surprised by what we can offer.

Competitive quotes are available for vans, HGVs (class 1, 2 or 3), mobile plant (sweepers, planers, graders, JCB's, dumpers, etc), agricultural vehicles and minibuses.

So, whether you need a quote for a single vehicle or an entire fleet, please bear us in mind.

Fleets start at just 2 vehicles and you could save money over insuring each vehicle separately.

We have access to a number of the UK's leading insurers of commercial vehicles and we offer a quick turnaround on quotes - no hanging about. All we need in order to quote is a list of your vehicles, your drivers and any claims history. We'll do the rest.

Getting a quote for our Minibus Hire Company was easy as Chris Knotts did all the work.
They helped get the necessary information together quickly and the whole process
was slick. We could hardly believe it when they saved us over £6,000. And they'll
keep on top of the MID reporting for us too - we'd recommend Chris Knott Insurance
for fleet cover any time.”
