Hazelton Mountford Directors

Hazelton Mountford are open for business and offer support to the local community

With all Britons and UK businesses feeling the impact of the recent measures to manage the COVID-19, the team at Hazelton Mountford have received an increasing amount of calls from clients about their policies. Group Managing Director, Gordon Hazelton, says: "Insurance is designed to help mitigate against income loss caused by incidents such as Fire, Flood etc, but most policies will not cover income lost by a global pandemic or action of the government at the time they were taken out. This is regarded as similar to a war situation where the state responds to protect the population."

THE ‘I’ WORD

Exhibition season is upon us at Hazelton Mountford, we do 6 shows a year, 5 of which are in a 3 month period. The more we do them the more we notice how people see the word 'INSURANCE' and immediately look away. So the question is, why avoid the subject of insurance? As a business you HAVE to have it. You wouldn't ignore your home or car insurance so why allow your business insurance to take a back seat? The same way you look for the best employees to support your company, or the best quality car for your money, why not search for the best Insurance Broker to protect the thing you've worked so hard for... Your Business.
