Streamlining insurance for cleaning companies

Cleaning companies and other small businesses now have ready access to a streamlined insurance service tailored for the needs of their sector. Darwinsure is a new online insurance scheme designed to provide quick quotes, competitive prices, and secure payment for small businesses seeking specialist cover. Darwin Clayton, one of the UK's longest-established independent insurance brokers, has joined forces with specialist insurer Ageas to launch the new online solution.

Business owners can obtain their insurance cover via a range of electronic devices using Darwin Clayton's secure e-trading platform. As well as the cleaning sector, Darwinsure caters for security equipment installers, electrical contractors, interior fit-out specialists, IT service providers, as well as a wide range of other trades.

“The launch of Darwinsure gives our small business customers a consumer-style experience as they access tailored cover and real value,” said Simon Henderson, managing director of Darwin Clayton (UK) Ltd. “The Darwinsure platform allows us to extend the combined experience and expertise of Darwin Clayton and Ageas in specialised insurance cover to the small business sector. It supports our vision to be the market-leading provider of niche insurance products in the UK.”

Chris Dobson, broker distribution director at Ageas Insurance, added: “Darwinsure is a great example of how Ageas operates in both schemes and in the e-trade sector, providing specialist support and tailored solutions to brokers and their customers. Darwinsure expands the reach of our products in the online commercial sector and we are delighted to be able to grow our business relationship to the benefit of all parties.”
