FAQs

Office insurance FAQs

  • Can you cover my equipment outside of the office?

  • Yes we are able to offer an "All Risks" section to our office package. This will cover items taken outside of the insured business premises i.e. a laptop used for external meetings.

  • Do I have to be trading for a number of years to be able to get cover?

  • No, our range of insurance packages enables us to deliver the right solution for both start ups as well as established businesses.

  • I work from home, do I still need an office insurance policy?

  • Yes. You will need to cover your business equipment if this is not covered by your home insurance. You will also need to cover your liabilities resulting from your business activities (this is excluded from most home insurance policies).

  • Water has leaked into my shop from the flat upstairs. Do I need to advise my own insurers or shall I just claim against the upstairs neighbours?

  • You should notify your insurers of any damage to your property even if you think someone else may be responsible. Do not assume that just because the damage was caused by someone else that they are legally liable. The law allows for genuine and fortuitous events and also bear in mind that they might not be insured or in a financial position to pay for your damage.

  • Where can I find more information about monthly Direct Debit?

  • If you want to know more about our monthly payment option, please read our dedicated page on Direct Debit.

Unoccupied Insurance (New Policy Holder)

++

Employee very knowledgable with product and helped me understand everything in lay mans terms. Thank you.

Static Caravan Insurance (Renewal)

-

I am afraid that Towergate, through their appointed loss adjusters, consistently refused a claim for over 2400 pounds of wáter damage to the static caused by wáter increase through corner seals. Subsequently the Financial Ombudsman ruled in our favour and the claim was paid with an 8% penalty against the insurers. This saga caused unnecessary delay and worry during a time when it was obvious to us that there was a liability to pay for the internal damage though not the resealing of the corner joints.
We have continued with this company and hope that there will be no repeat of this level of service should another claim arise.

RIB Insurance (Renewal)

Fast answering of the phone, friendly and very knowledgable staff who are willing to share their experiences and expertise. A pleasure to deal with this company.

Specialist Insurance (New Policy Holder)

++

Lorraine Francis was very thorough, had a great telephone manner and I really felt as though she understood what we needed. She took time to call back at an agreed time the next day and made the whole process much more personal than most. I would definitely refer any friends and family to Towergate and specifically Lorraine.

Very good service and prompt answer to telephone!

Specialist Insurance (New Policy Holder)

-

We wanted holiday home insurance and Towergate offered a policy that did not cover many contents if unoccupied for a period. Holiday home insurance should cover unoccupied periods. We were also overcharged as the policy amount, VAT and Towergate fee added up to less than the amount taken by Towergate. When we asked for the policy to be cancelled as it was not suitable for holiday home purposes Towergate did not do this and we had to call again to ask for cancellation. In the end we received a full refund but overall the experience was not good.

Dinghy Insurance (Renewal)

Very happy

I have three boats insured on two policies - I wonder whether it would be to our mutual advantage if they were all on one policy

Unoccupied Insurance (New Policy Holder)

All questions answered to my satisfaction and in the circumstances, renewed the policy

Household Insurance (New Policy Holder)

++Latest:++

Simon Sorrentino was excellent on the phone, explaining things and answering questions, without being all jargon-y or pushy. He was very pleasant and made the process of switching my insurance to meet our new needs (as foster parents) a pleasant and easy one.


On 16-Sep-2014 the customer changed their rating and added:
It is very useful to be able to have specific insurance needs met now that we are fostering.
