What our clients have to say

“We lost our workshop to a fire that totally destroyed the building and its content. From the first phone call to Hazlett, until the final settlement, the team have been absolutely brilliant to deal with. This was a complicated claim across four different policies, and through working with the team we have come to an outcome that we feel was fair and reasonable – Without a good insurance broker I am sure we would not have achieved the outcome that we have.”
