Towergate Assist

Open & Close

When you have suffered a loss and need to make a claim, your immediate thought will be to inform your insurance company - but expert technical advice can make a real difference to the process and the outcome of your claim.

Insurers today require detailed claims calculations with comprehensive supporting documentation, which involves considerable knowledge and work. This is a time when you need to be concentrating your efforts on the recovery of your business, or rebuilding of your home, rather than servicing insurers' requirements. By using Towergate Assist you are free to concentrate on your priorities.

Towergate Assist supports you during the claims process by providing the services of an experienced independent loss adjuster within 24 hours. The loss adjuster will:

  • Make telephone contact within 2 hours of you reporting the loss to Towergate
  • Advise on loss mitigation from your perspective
  • Personally visit you within 24 hours of notification of major Losses
  • Manage all claims meetings and communications with Insurers
  • Source temporary accommodation, and get this agreed with insurer's representative
  • Supervise contractors as needed
  • Arrange interim payments from Insurers when necessary
  • Assist you in preparing a comprehensive statement of claim, and ensure this statement is fully substantiated

Risk Management Services

Open & Close

As legislation becomes increasingly complex, the need to identify, assess and minimise hazards within any business is vital, if you are to address both your corporate and legal obligations.

A risk management strategy is key in terms of reducing threat within your business to an acceptable level, enabling you to control costs and protect stakeholder value. Without a risk management strategy in place your personnel, reputation and profitability may all be at risk.

Some risks are obvious while others lie undetected due to lack of awareness. By identifying and tackling key issues, costly mishaps can be reduced or even avoided. Furthermore, demonstrating effective risk management improves our ability to present your business to insurers and obtain best possible terms.

Towergate has gained a reputation as one of the leading independent brokers offering a fully integrated risk management service.

Business Continuity Planning

Open & Close

For most businesses, advance planning for the possibility of a catastrophe will determine whether they survive.

Many businesses collapse not because of a major disaster such as fire or flood but because of something as simple as the failure of a key piece of machinery.

The key component that marks out the survivors is a plan for disaster recovery or a business continuity plan.

Insurance cover

Business interruption insurance is only half the solution. While providing a financial safety net as a business recovers, an insurance claim or policy will not help recover lost customers, production time or essential data.

Towergate's business continuity planning service has been developed to offer much more than traditional insurance cover.

Utilising comprehensive analysis, Towergate identifies the actions needed to keep a business functioning should disaster strike.
