A new online insurance company is promising to provide businesses with the right advice rather than just the cheapest quote.

Quote Dave has been launched to help SMEs find the right business insurance policy quickly and easily.

The new online platform is the brainchild of David Roberts & Partners, a leading insurance broker which has been operating for almost 40 years. The company’s track record enables it to offer Quote Dave customers with insurance policies from leading insurers including RSA, AXA and Allianz.

Stuart Bennett, a director of David Roberts & Partners, said: “We believe Quote Dave fills an important gap in the insurance market. A number of insurance brokers are consolidating which means smaller businesses are finding it harder to get the personal advice and find the right policy for them, while many other online sites are simply pushing the cheapest policy without any advice.

“It is easy to arrange cheap insurance but it is liable to come back and bite you when the business has to make a claim.

“A £50 saving is not much use when you have to make a claim for £5,000 and find the cover is not there or the excess is £1,000.

“Our commitment to clients is to provide them with business insurance with the quality advice they deserve. We will not guarantee them the cheapest insurance, only the right insurance for their particular business or sector.”

Quote Dave is already helping business owners across a range of sectors including small manufacturers, builders, carpenters, joiners, cleaners, landlords and restaurant and café owners.

Policies include commercial vehicle insurance, landlord insurance, insurance for tradesmen, manufacturer and wholesaler insurance, public liability, professional indemnity and even cover in the event of cyber terrorism.

All new clients receive DNA+, a forensic coding kit that enables business owners to micro dot their goods with a unique security code.

Stuart added: “As an SME ourselves, we understand the challenges and requirements of similar businesses. Putting the right insurance in place is business critical.

“As an independent broker we are able to put in place the right insurance for our clients. Our fees are transparent and we do not favour one product over another.

“All our clients are looked after by a client manager from the moment they email or call us for a quote.”

David Roberts & Partners was founded in 1977 and is today led by Managing Director John Page and director Stuart Bennett.
