The Long Eaton flood experts

23rd July, 2018

As a local community insurance broker in Long Eaton, we have the River Trent and the River Erewash on our doorstep and, as many of you know, they are prone to flooding.

From the Great Flood in 1947, which damaged over 2,000 homes, to the Trent Lock-In flood in 2000, which resulted in £1,000,000 worth of claims, we are based in an area with an eventful history of flooding, allowing us to underst the complexities of finding adequate Flood Insurance solutions.

Whilst flood defences were installed in 2012, namely the biggest inland flood defence in the UK, the challenges of sourcing adequate insurance and rising premiums has not gone away, and those living and running businesses in these areas are still being considered as a high-risk and are often forced into having high flood excesses on their homes and business insurance policies, creating a financial burden in the event of rising waters and floods.

Steve Beeley, our Managing Director, who has been with us since 1989, has witnessed the devastation of local flooding, seeing the impact first-hand on both businesses and private individuals.

He believes that “having the right protection, advice and support in the event of flood provides you not only with peace of mind, but a better understanding of how these events will be managed and how we work alongside you and your insurers to ensure minimum disruption.”

Many of our clients reside in these high-risk areas and our strong local knowledge and relationships with insurers, surveyors and loss adjusters means we can offer a wealth of experience and expertise, giving us unparalleled insight which we use to advise and support our clients, both existing and new.
