Read Hunt Limited was set up specifically to be different - different from the normal insurance advisor. All our clients share one common issue - an exposure to risk! They turn to us because we minimise that risk and because we do something more than just sell insurance. Whatever the challenge your business faces, we are assembled to meet those challenges, combining the skills you need and applying them on your behalf.

Products & Services

Commercial Insurance

If you need a combined insurance package, we’d love to help. First, we’ll establish that’s the right thing for you, with an in-depth survey from a member of our friendly, knowledgeable team. It gives us a level of insight most brokers don’t bother with, but we like to get the full picture so that we can see what products will really work hardest for you.

Once they’ve processed all your info you’ll be guided through the range of commercial package options available, many unique to you. You can be sure every one is a reliable, first class product, backed by a big insurance company. (They’re the brands you’d first think of if asked to name an insurer - Aviva, Lloyd’s of London, Allianz, Zurich, AXA, Ageas, AIG, etc.)

We don’t believe in rushing you into anything. (None of that ‘sign right now or miss out’ malarkey) . You’ll get a list of our proposed products in writing and have as many chances as you need to discuss things with us further. If you want to go ahead we’ll get the ball rolling - and make sure you end up with the cover your business really needs.

Motor Trade insurance

The motor industry has many sectors, so it’s a mystery to us why so many insurers seem to think one policy works for everyone.

We’ve arranged individual policies for organisations covering Sales (New and Used) , Vehicle Transportation, Serving and Repairs, Bodywork, and Professional Indemnity regarding Finance. Our clients include national dealerships turning over hundreds of millions of pounds as well as small independent local garages.

Every business gets a thorough annual MOT to make sure their cover is right for their unique needs, although there is one thing that’s always the same - great service at every stage for every customer.

Property Insurance

The cover you need in the property business is as unique as your postcode. You value each property individually, and we value each property portfolio as unique. With an off the shelf product, you’re likely to be overpaying for cover you don’t really need or worse, not have effective cover in place.

You see, we don’t just give you an insurance product, we give you an insurance package. One that takes into account the risks and is then designed, just for you, to meet your actual needs. You might be leasing a small number of properties, have holiday homes across Europe, or hold a multi-million pound portfolio. It doesn’t matter to us - because we’ll always begin by understanding your unique commercial position and challenges.

From Our Website

First, we can analyse your business and identify liability risks. That means we can be specific (in some cases bespoke) and recommend the products you actually need. You'll deal with one point of contact right through the process. No getting lost in call centre systems, endlessly listening to Enya or cross-referencing different people's notes. You'll speak with one insurance advisor who's constantly getting to better understand you and your requirements. With an insurance plan tailored to your business, we'll then find the most cost-effective policy.

Mike didn't have any grand plans for the insurance industry when he fell into it over 30 years ago. But after working for several firms of various sizes, he realised he could do better than the big boys and set up Read Hunt with former partner Steve Reading. Back in 2002, Mike's vision was to be a customer-focused broker, treating every client equally, regardless of scale or sector. It's a philosophy that he's sticking with. Mike ensures every client, new and old, receives the same personable, professional service that Read Hunt has become renowned for.

Liability, be it Employer's, Public, Product or any combination of the three, is an insurance product many businesses will require, but the cover needs vary greatly. With rising costs and greater legislation having good advice will stop your business being exposed. That's what we're here for. Our level of experience in this field is second to none, and the range of industry sector clients we work with is immense. Steel stockholders to plastic manufacturers, on-site contractors for nuclear installations to multi-site retailers, we've advised them all.

This specialised and often complex area is one we're very familiar with. We're proud to have built up strong, strategic relationships with insurers and have, to date, always bettered the product for our clients. It's not only about getting the most competitive price (although we do that too), it's about getting the most suitable and comprehensive cover. As with our clients in any sector, taking a bespoke approach that truly accommodates your business needs is how we get the cover that's the perfect fit for you.
