  • Omnisure walked me through the insurance process step by step ensuring that I understood what was being covered and why. They provided sensible solutions and always had me and my business as the main concern. I certainly feel far more secure and can sleep well at night knowing that we are in good hands.

  • Omnisure are the most professional and hard working team of experts we have ever met. When nobody could insure our type of business they persisted until they found the right insurer and the right cover. We recommend their services highly, and thank them for being there for us.

  • Omnisure have been our broker now for 5 years. As a director I am liable for more than I realised, but they have ensured each year I don't have any gaps in my insurance and renew before the policy expires. If you are looking for a proactive, personal insurance broker I would have no hesitation in recommending Omnisure.
