h2i brokers are specialists in business insurance, the breadth of our knowledge and experience may be measured by the markets in which we work in. Here a few examples of the types of business that we are proud to represent and some of the cover that we provide.
‘’Clive takes the time to understand my business…he is like a partner in the company, entirely trusted and always there to offer advice and help of a practical nature’’
The fast moving world of insurance is always producing interesting and challenging situations, this is why it is important to deal with experts that really understand the business markets.
This is far from an exhaustive list of the trades we deal with on a daily basis.
h2i are genuine experts in this field with a wealth of experience dealing with every aspect of cover and claims.
Buildings Insurance is there to cover the cost of repairs, replacements or rebuilding your property following damage. You will know that as a property owner it is your responsibility to provide adequate cover and whilst this is not a legal requirement we strongly advise property owners to insure against the potential risk. A simple matter often overlooked by less experienced brokers is that that there may also be some fixtures and fittings or contents requiring cover.
“Exceptional service, h2i had a genuine understanding of my business, happy tenants, happy landlord”
Depending upon the location of your property you may wish to consider the addition of Terrorism cover. And of course we are happy to arrange cover should you feel the need for protection.
In the event that the lease with your tenant(s) contains a rent cessation clause, you should cover for Loss of Rent and our experience allows us not only to advise on the period you need to insure for but also to guide on the inclusion of matters such as projected rental increases to ensure the correct level of cover.
NB. You should include Public Liability arising from your ownership of the building, whilst the tenant should insure their liability as occupier.

Stock levels, Third Party Risk, Seasonal Fluctuations, Storage Challenges and the possibility of public access on your premises can often mean that standard Commercial Insurance may not provide your business with the cover you need.
We appreciate the very specific requirements of wholesalers and we work with you to provide appropriate, affordable and practical cover against the risks that could damage your business.

Contents Insurance is vital to most businesses, covering as it does the replacement of stock or equipment if it is damaged, lost or stolen.
Ensuring the use of your most up to date inventory and contents valuations is standard practice for H2i, another example of how we work as part of your team, ensuring that full cover is provided during your busy periods such as Christmas or just before a large order is due to leave your premises when more stock is being carried.
Additional Cover in the form of Business Interruption Insurance guards against your inability to trade normally as a result of damage to your premises or stock, cover that may easily be added to existing Buildings or Contents Insurance. Temporary losses and damage to machinery can also be covered, a fact vital to many small to medium size companies.

As a Contractor you will of course hold Public Liability Insurance, the level of which we are always happy to advise upon, reflecting the type of work you are doing and the clients that you work with.
If you employ staff or sub-contractors you will need Employers Liability Insurance, and any project may have a requirement to cover Contract Works, Plant and Temporary Buildings for example and we are happy to offer advice about when this cover is appropriate to your business.
“Superb from start to finish, I felt that I was dealing with experts”
You may also need to consider design liability and other project related negligence claims and in order to do this we can look at Professional Indemnity Insurance.
Another important consideration is the level of cover that may be required by potential employers and Facilities Management companies, incorrect cover might prevent you from gaining an important or lucrative contract.
Contractors in other fields will almost certainly require insurance specific to their expertise, we advise IT Consultants, IFA’s, Accountants, Solicitors and many other business professionals.

The range of risks associated with manufacturing are such that in addition to Employers, Public and Product Liability you may also require specialist insurance cover.
As a manufacturer your business may be affected by the breakdown of machinery, problems with suppliers or customers, some of which may be insurable, health and safety issues and of course the regular challenges associated with running any business.
It is also important to ensure correct valuation of stock including time expended stock and in the case of some more target risk materials, obtain additional cover.
