Property Insurance Centre specialise in providing policies for Commercial property owners.  We have access to many underwriters and can ensure to provide you with the best price for the right protection.

With offices in London & Northern Ireland we serve 1000’s of customers all over the UK.

We offer the following types of insurance cover for Commercial and Residential property owners.  We also can offer cover for commercial and residential combined policies:

  • Block of Flats
  • Commercial Property
  • Unoccupied Commercial
  • Unoccupied Residential
  • Home Insurance
  • Residential landlords
  • Landlords liability for single flats
  • GAP insurance
  • Directors & Officers
  • Terrorism
  • Lockup garage

We can offer:

  • High quality, comprehensive, client specific cover.
  • Flexibility in the cover arranged. We can work with clients who have unoccupied property, flats or apartments that require cover for communal areas or clients whose buildings are occupied by tenants that may prove challenging for the general insurance broker to provide appropriate cover to. For residential landlords, it may be asylum seeker or DSS tenants. For commercial landlords, it could be a manufacturing business tenant whose machinery or stock is deemed to be particularly hazardous.
  • Competitive rates. We work closely with a range of Insurance companies. Having built up a track record of quality brokerage and risk assessment and management, our insurance partners can sometimes offer us preferential rates reflecting their trust in our judgement of a case.

Speak to Claire, Robert or Gavin today on 0800 085 3761 and we will offer a competitive price and the best cover around!
