New for Estates http://www.hendricksinsurance.co.uk/news/?d=20

New for Estates – We are delighted to be launching our new estate facility commencing 1st October. Ritchie Sherret (Chairman) says, “We already have perhaps the widest distribution for sourcing estate insurance in the country and our new facility further enhances our ability in providing the widest possible covers at competitive premiums. Added to the fact that we do not receive hidden commissions from our insurer partners, rather we charge an agreed fee with our clients, will ensure we continue to have a competitive advantage. We are looking forward to continued growth and providing an unparalleled personal service for our estate clients.”

More Rural Thefts ! http://www.hendricksinsurance.co.uk/news/?d=17 We are encountering unprecedented levels of thefts from our rural clients. The best form of mitigation is prevention. Our advice is to make sure all property is as secure as it can be within a lock fast building, this includes all types of machinery large or small - a telehandler was stolen in Fife last month and has never been seen again - and the usual target of quad bikes shows no sign of abating. Those clients who have been unfortunate enough to suffer a break-in or theft have all now installed alarms as well as CCTV. This is not as expensive as you may think and does serve the purpose in persuading the casual thief to move on to an unprotected premise. Please therefore give some thought to installing some counter measures as they will pay for themselves in the long run ! Remember insurance premiums chase claims !!

I spy... Hendricks Insurance on BBC Landward http://www.hendricksinsurance.co.uk/news/?d=10 Yes. Hendricks Insurance has gone 'global' with an appearance on BBC Scotland's Landward. It wasn't all about us though - the stars of the show were the Longhorn cattle featured in a report discussing the revival of the breed within the Scottish farming community. The Executive Chairman of United Auctions, David Leggat, spoke about how the breed has come into its own in recent years and reversed its longterm decline on farms across the country.

The report was filmed recently during the successful Stirling bull sales of which Hendricks Insurance was the main sponsor. Be sure to have a look at the report - we were there! And there. And over there...

Hendricks Insurance opens new offices http://www.hendricksinsurance.co.uk/news/?d=3

An expanding insurance broking business, specialising in farming and estate policies will be opening a new office at United Auctions’ (UA’s) Stirling Agricultural Centre in January 2013.

Hendricks Insurance’s Agricultural & Estates Division has taken the last remaining 3,000 sq ft at Scotland’s leading livestock auctioneers’ Stirling Agricultural Centre, as their new headquarters. And the business, which has a long‐established office in St Andrews, has a strategy in place to become Scotland’s premier rural insurance broker.

It is already planning a recruitment drive for an initial core staff of five employees – rising to 20 by 2014.  Key appointments will be announced in January 2013 when the Stirling office will be officially open for business.

Neil McLean, Group Joint MD of UA, said: 

“This is great news for Stirling and for our customers. We’re delighted that this ambitious firm is opening its new HQ at the Centre.  The addition of a rural insurance brokers perfectly complements the exceptional cluster of professional, agri‐related services the Centre offers, which includes CKD Galbraith, Ledingham Chalmers, Johnston Carmichael and Carrs Billington Agriculture. This was our vision for the facility right from the start so it’s really satisfying to see it develop with such success.”

Ritchie Sherret, Director of Hendricks Insurance said: 

“This is such a huge opportunity for us. There is a real sense of community at the Centre and I can’t think of any other business location in Scotland that offers such great potential with a footfall of over 22,000 on your doorstep every year. The opportunity is also recognised by two of the country’s largest agricultural underwriters with whom we are finalising arrangements that will see us launching perhaps the best all‐round policy on the market with very competitive premiums. We are expecting to make a real impact.”

Hendricks Insurance will take over the bespoke insurance service for the Stirling Bull Sales from February next year.
