The Devil is in the detail

Would you benefit from a free insurance policy healthcheck?

Is your forecourt adequately Insured?

PEIMF member, Jackaman Insurance Services offer a specialist, professional service and are specialists in placing Forecourt Insurances including Property Damage covers.

Its vastly experienced principal – Peter Jackaman – offers a free policy healthcheck. This is a ‘no-cost’ opportunity for you to make sure you’re fully, adequately covered.

“We have many available Insurers at our fingertips to ensure that the best and widest policy is tailored to our clients’ individual needs. This could Include associated motor fleet and Motor Trade extensions to standard covers.”

Do you have Contamination Liability cover as standard?

We have seen a lot of Insurance Polices exclude damage to Third Party vehicles following contamination to your fuel stock following ingress of water or foreign bodies. This could be an expensive liability which is why some Insurers will exclude it.

Do you have cover for Denial of Access or Failure of Electricity?

Have you had a failure of electricity or your Local Authority dig up the road and prevent access to your premises – resulting in loss of business? Some policies will not naturally extend to cover for these eventualities.

Are there exclusions sitting in your policy you are not aware of?

We have lost count of the amount of policies we have checked for prospective clients, which have exclusions and restrictive conditions which could result in Insurers declining to deal with a claim.

Peter started his insurance career in 1981 at Lloyds of London, on an underwriting syndicate. He then switched to Insurance Broking, concentrating on negotiating heavy Insurance contracts in both the Lloyds and London Insurance markets; arranging business on behalf of regional Insurance Brokers, who were not able to place “difficult” or high risk” business with their local Insurers. Such business included Heavy Contractors, entertainment and leisure, heavy motor fleets, petrochemical and related business etc.

In 1997, he decided to leave the City and use his expertise to negotiate contracts direct with the Policyholders themselves, rather than with their Brokers. This allowed him to have a better understanding of his clients’ needs and tailor contracts especially for them, whilst retaining his London market insurer contacts.
