  • When my business suffered a significant fire in one of our machines, both our brokers, L Wood & Co and insurers, RSA, responded quickly and provided me with expert advice and support. Thankfully L Wood had recommended the use of a Loss Assessor who helped us with the claim negotiation and within a few weeks we have our business back running as normal again with the purchase of a new machine and all other associated issues swiftly resolved enabling us to avoid any disruption to our customers. I would like to thank our Insurance Brokers, RSA Insurance and the Loss Assessor for helping settle this claim as swiftly and as painlessly as possible.

Over the past 12 years this team has kept up with my ever changing needs for our business insurance. The real test of an insurance Broker is when you have a claim. When the worst happened and we needed to look to L Wood to support us through the claim process they really looked after us.
