The unknowns you don't see
Many of our private clients came to us because they were impressed by the personalized, diligent service they had seen from us as corporate clients. But they often benefitted in more tangible ways.
When we reviewed their personal insurance arrangements, some were facing more unknowns than they imagined.
For example, a family heirloom piece like a beloved watch that was only insured when inside the house – not while being worn as normal.
Or high-value individual items like artworks, antique furniture or jewellery that weren't covered at all.
Or "comprehensive" car insurance that was, in fact, anything but…if they drove in other countries.
The Bartlett process
When you buy standard insurance policies, especially over the internet, you often don't receive enough advice. You may have specialist requirements (a second home, an irreplaceable artwork) that don't fit an off-the-shelf product. Policy documents are sent out, but not always read. And online comparison sites guide you to the cheapest price, not the best fit for coverage.
So there may be a lot of unknowns in your policies.
At Bartlett, our approach is simple: we take the trouble to ensure that we fully understand your insurance needs, and only recommend policies that meet them. Very often we can improve on the cost of your premiums, but we're unashamedly focused on ensuring you're covered for every eventuality, for the right amount.
Our personal service extends to the claims process. Should you have to make a claim, we'll help you every step of the way, ensuring that a stressful spell moves along as smoothly as possible.
