“We approached LBH Insurance (along with several other brokers) to help with the renewal of our PI cover. LBH Insurance were head and shoulders above the rest, in terms of pro-activity, and, of course very importantly, getting us a great (and very cost-effective) new cover. Thank you LBH!" 

Nick Butler, Minerva SC Solutions Ltd


"We have dealt exclusively with LBH Insurance for over 25 years and the level of service has always been exemplary. They do not fail each year in providing the most competitive quotes but more importantly when assistance is required they are there to take away all of the stress often related to claims. Insurance brokers do not come more highly recommended than LBH. They have procured for us over the years Combined Commercial Insurance, Landlord Insurance, Public Liability Insurance, Commercial and residential policies, Emergency Landlord Policies and all of our vehicle insurances."
