CADOGAN KEELAN WESTALL JOINS FORCES WITH NETWORK AUCTIONS TO OFFER INSURANCE COVER WITHIN MINUTES OF THE HAMMER FALLING
First-of-a-kind agreement enables buyers to put property purchased at auction ‘on risk’ immediately
Leading European commercial property insurance broker Cadogan Keelan Westall (tel: 01420 488288 / 0203 102 4260 or www.cadogankeelanwestall.com) has recently joined forces with Network Auctions to offer buyers access to cost effective, best of breed insurance cover within minutes of the hammer falling..
As part of this exclusive, first-of-a-kind arrangement, Cadogan Keelan Westall representatives will attend auctions held at Network Auctions’ National Auction Room in Hatfield where they will be on hand to advise buyers on all aspects of their insurance requirements, and help ensure that properties are adequately protected from day one.
The agreement will also see both companies publicising each other’s services on their respective websites, social networking sites and sales & marketing literature.
Network Auctions’ Director Toby Limerick comments: “Buyers don’t always realise that it is their responsibility to insure property from exchange of contracts. As a binding contract happens at auction on the fall of the hammer, it is important to be able to put a property ‘on risk’ immediately.”
He continues: “By working with Cadogan Keelan Westall, Network Auctions is able to offer buyers access to a facility, in the auction room, that allows a property to go ‘on risk’ within minutes of the hammer falling and the sale being made.”
Darren Coldspring, Business Development Manager at Cadogan Keelan Westall says: “Joining forces with Network Auctions will help establish Cadogan Keelan Westall in a previously untapped market. As the only property insurance broker attending the events, it creates a potentially huge new business opportunity for us. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship between our two businesses.”
Cadogan Keelan Westall offers a wide range of commercial property insurance and risk management solutions to property owners both in the UK and overseas.
Binding authority agreements with major blue chip insurers enables the company to provide cover for a broad range of risks, as well as offer a truly competitive service, the best possible premiums, and wider fair market analysis.Monday 26 September 2011
