Business to business general insurance provider Uinsure is celebrating its best month ever for business volumes.
The Manchester-based firm saw record results in what is traditionally seen to be the quietest season.
Chief executive officer Simon Taylor said: “July and August are usually difficult months for providers as with summer holidays and sunshine, insurance tends to be the last thing on people’s minds. However, we have seen some staggering sales figures for July and August has positively followed suit. We’re setting best ever daily records each week and our business is really gathering momentum.
“This is a great time for the UK housing market. House prices are rising at their fastest rate since 2006, the number of buyers’ enquiries has hit a four-year high and the buy-to-let sector is booming. The optimism is tangible and it’s fantastic to see.”
As part of its new offering it recently launched a Price Beater facility which allows brokers to reduce premiums by sacrificing commission, ensuring they will never have to lose a customer as a result of premium costs.
Improvements have also been made to the quotation system allowing home insurance and buy-to-let insurance quotes to be produced from a panel in less than 30 seconds.
