Competitive Thatch Scheme LaunchedMonday 16th March 2009
Higos offers market-leading insurance for owners of thatched properties
Higos Insurance Services has launched a new market-leading insurance policy offering excellent value for money to owners of thatched properties. The three-year home insurance plan includes special discounts and the offer of a free chimney inspection by a qualified engineer every three years to help reduce potential risk of fire.
The Higos offer is in conjunction with the Thatched Owners Group (TOG). TOG has many years of experience helping homeowners care for their thatched properties. TOG can provide assistance with the renovation and repair of thatched houses and can also offer advice on grants for re-thatching.
“In recent months there has been much upheaval in the thatched home insurance market, with many insurers deciding not to offer cover,” said Ian Gosden, managing director of Higos. “Our expertise has enabled us to secure competitive rates ensuring owners receive the best cover at a great price.”
The Thatched Owners Insurance Services plan provides quotes that are guaranteed for six months, enabling thatched home owners to budget and secure their insurance in advance of renewal.
Discounts on offer include:
~15 per cent for purchasing a subsidised chimney monitor
~10 per cent for roofs treated with a fire retardant spray
~15 per cent where chimneys are not used
“We are constantly looking for new and innovative products for our customers,” said Ian Gosden. “In conjunction with TOG we have a market leading product which we believe will allow us to provide cover which is second to none for thatched property owners.”
