Having been quoted an excessive increase for our PI cover, with just a week to go before our cover ran out, we were under some pressure to find other quotes very quickly. Howden could not have been more helpful and professional in finding us an improved quote including a meeting with one of the leading insurers in order for us to put our case face to face.

Director, Chartered Surveyors

Over the years you have obtained very competitive rates and on the rare occasions where we have had claims on our PI policy they have been dealt with extremely well. Our relationship goes back more than 25 years which is the best proof of your continuing high levels of service for us.

Founder and Director, Chartered Surveyors

Howden dealt promptly and efficiently with our requirements, provided full explanations to all queries, and produced the unexpected bonus of a reduced premium and halved excess on our annual PII.

Director, Chartered Surveyors

Howden are refreshingly open, honest and forthright and, if you would like to see what 'good' looks like, I would strongly recommend that you make contact.

Director, Chartered Surveyors

Howden deliver a consistent, high quality service throughout the year – it’s not a relationship that only sparks to life a few weeks before renewal, as has been our experience in the past.
