What our customers say

Speech Marks

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.
