What our customers say

Speech Marks

We are very happy to confirm that our company has maintained a close association with Basil Fry for some fifty years. During that time, we have received the very best of impartial advice on all insurance matters, ranging from our Motor fleet and property, to our Customers Goods and Marine policies.

We have always been very impressed with the claim settling service, which has been efficient, yet fair to both parties. Basil Fry settles our claims in the manner we wish our clients to be treated, frequently adding enhancement to the removal experience despite a claim being made. Claim settlement feels “bespoke” and I am sure that our clients appreciate this. Over the years the advice has been invaluable to us. The service we receive from Basil Fry exceeds our expectations, yet charges remain competitive.

Basil Fry are more than our insurance brokers, they have become our trusted business support.

Ian Palmer, CEO, White & Company

Basil Fry have been a fantastic partner to us over the last ten years providing solutions to our ever changing insurance needs as we have grown our removals and storage business and also developed our self storage brand. Their knowledge of both sectors is in our opinion second to none and the hands on and personal approach of our Account Director and the professionalism of the claims handling cannot be faulted.

Charles Schmidt, House & Carriage and MyStore Self Storage

We moved our insurances to Basil Fry & Company having happily used a local broker for years. It became clear however that the specialist knowledge and products that Basil Fry provide add significant additional peace of mind and value to our insurance procurement and we haven’t looked back since moving to them seven years ago. We value their involvement and support and would highly recommend them to any new or existing self storage operator.

Rory Windham, Director, GoStore Self Storage

Basil Fry & Co. have been our preferred insurance provider for 20 years and throughout our time with them have provided fantastic support in all insurances matters. Most recently we’d like to extend our thanks for the on site training provided which has given all our customer facing staff invaluable knowledge and confidence to deal with any customers’ insurance queries.

Brian Maidman, Managing Director, Store & Secure

Being a client of Basil Fry is not just about insurance, it’s about being part of a close knit networking community. I can safely say that my business has been able to grow as a result of the introductions I have made meeting other Basil Fry clients and can’t thank Greg and his team enough.

Del Grant, Managing Director, Grants of Cheam

We have used Basil Fry for nearly twenty years to source our insurance products. Their ethos as a family orientated business fits in perfectly with our own and the service we receive continues to be of the very highest standard and is very reassuring for our own family business. You cannot put a price on peace of mind knowing that you have in place an insurance product to protect your business and clients that is second to none. Thank you, Basil Fry.

Matthew Schofield, Managing Director, R&D Schofield

I have used Basil Fry Insurance Brokers for fifteen years and have found their service to be excellent. I receive answers to my questions quickly and the broking team are pro-active in finding the best results for my Company. The claims service provided by RCS is extremely good with fair outcomes for all parties involved.

I would not hesitate to recommend Basil Fry’s insurance broking services to the moving industry.

Stuart Almandras, Director, Britannia Sandersteads

Basil Fry & Company have been our insurance brokers of choice for the past 12 years. The insurance products that they provide are perfectly tailored to our needs and we find that the service they provide in both broking and claims is second to none.

We're excited to announce that Basil Fry & Company has been acquired by the Jensten Group. The deal is subject to regulatory approval by the FCA. The Jensten Group is one of the UK's leading insurance distribution businesses and stands out in a crowded marketplace with a reputation for putting clients and people first.

We had various opportunities to consider elsewhere but it was clear that our shared ethos would make this transition a success.
