The insurance requirements for the motor industry can be complex and getting the right advice and ensuring that adequate insurance protection is in place is important to keep your business running.

Jelf are there when you need them. From risk management to making a claim, their comprehensive service crosses a wide variety of related areas and can ultimately lead to time savings, risk reduction and cost control.

One question to ask yourself when it comes to renewing your insurance is: ‘When was the last time you had a professional insurance review?’ If the answer is ‘never’ or ‘a very long time ago’ then get in contact with Jelf.

Jelf believe their service offering to customers sets them apart from the rest.

Alistair Evans, an Account Director at Jelf specialising in the motor trade & motor fleet sectors, told FACTS: “The key to reducing costs is effective claims management, we do this by employing dedicated experienced claims staff from in-house technicians through to claims executives who can visit our clients on a regular basis to conduct various reviews.

“Essentially this allows us to keep on top of potential spiralling costs and limit and remove reserves where possible. Effective management of the ‘life of a claim’ will have an effect on your renewal invite which is important to us and our clients.

“We have an all-encompassing approach. As experts in Employee Benefits, Risk Management, Employment Law and Health & Safety, we are able to provide a really comprehensive service offering over and above general insurance, tailored to individual business requirements.”
