WHY USE CivInsure
We are not a newcomer to your industry. We have 25+ years’ experience in providing insurance solutions to the Civil Construction Industry. CivInsure is an insurance advisory firm that can save you time, money and worry. Just like an accountant or lawyer provides you with professional advice, based on years of training and experience, our team are well-qualified insurance advisers who can do the same with your insurance needs.
Construction insurance and insurance generally can be incredibly complicated to fully understand, and as your adviser, we can help you understand the details of an insurance policy and also work out what level of cover you need so that you are effectively protected.
Using CivInsure as your professional adviser often costs less than you expect because we have the knowledge of the current insurance market and the ability to negotiate competitive premiums on your behalf. In addition, because the CivInsure team deals with a wide range of insurance companies, we can access policies that are not available to most consumers who deal directly with an insurance company or agency.
If it so happens that you do have to make a claim, we will advocate on your behalf, liaising with the insurance company to negotiate the best possible outcome for you and your business.
So, whether it’s construction insurance, home, car, or other general insurances, Insurance Advisers are a trusted source of advice to ensure you are adequately protected.
