Hear what our customers have to say
We care about the journey we take our customers on, but it’s not our word you should be taking, see what our customers think of the service we provided!
We have enjoyed an excellent relationship with BES for over 5 years for all our inspection and insurance requirements. Their professionalism and commitment to service delivery stands out and is embedded at all levels of the business. The BERT system is an easy to use, trouble free method of transacting business and with additional training which was delivered in person this has given our staff a greater understanding of the inspection process and the extent of cover provided by the insurance covers. Our partnership continues to progress with all parts of the group including new opportunities arising from a facility to offer a full range of EV charging installation and servicing for our customers.
Head of Underwriting and Product Development at Residentsline
I am really impressed by what BES charges and the value that you get out of it, definitely much better than what you can get from Zurich and Allianz. Their online portal is the best in the market for its purpose and they offer a superior service.
With a wide and growing portfolio, we feel it is crucial we lead by example on ESG, particularly in the areas of climate and diversity. Focusing on these areas will mean that our businesses are capable of more sustainable success.
