  • Your buildings, including cover for canopies, pumps, signs and tanks

We can help beyond arranging insurance

Filling station licensees and employers must ensure that anyone who receives petrol deliveries must be able to prove their competence through training and experience, so we can connect you with an environmental and health & safety company for training in fuel delivery. We also provide access to a fast-acting 24-hour spillage response team:

  • Level 1 – Advice over the phone
  • Level 2 – Expert advice provided on the scene within 2 hours
  • Level 3 – Clean-up of spillage plus incident resolution by UKSpill accredited contractors.

Personal support from named contacts

You’ll have the support of a dedicated account manager who will get to know you and your forecourt business personally. We also offer a superb claims service, with named claims managers.
