What makes us different?
One of the most fundamental differences between a standard insurance product and the type of bespoke all- encompassing coverage provided by Miles Smith is the degree to which we engage with the client to protect their lifestyle.
We use our technical expertise, our significant experience of this market and our mass of claims data to analyse every aspect of a client’s lifestyle and their specific risks. Once we’ve gained an intimate understanding of their risk profile – in part through a physical appraisal conducted by one of our team – we offer advice and guidance. And even if, after all our efforts, our client needs to make a claim, we handle it quickly and with care.
The appraisal is vital for several reasons. It allows us to value assets accurately so that, should a claim be made, the replacement value of the item has been agreed in advance, hence no delays or unpleasant surprises.
- A reinstatement cost assessment ensures your valuable items are suitably covered if they are stolen.
- A review of your current level of covers to ensure there are no gaps in insurance and you are not underinsured.
- A security assessment, ensuring you have the right level of protect in your homes.
- An assessment on how severe weather, such as storms and floods, could affect your property and contents, including valuable collections.
