CETA Insurance announced it has launched a new service to help smaller brokers who have been forced to close offices amid the pandemic.
The insurance group said it has opened up a section of its call centre to offer a specialist home insurance referral service, which will place quotes and referrals on brokers’ behalf.
There will be no change to earnings for brokers who use the service.
CETA CEO, John Bibby, said: “It’s great under such difficult circumstances to see how everyone’s pulling together across the industry, and we just wanted to do what we could to try and support smaller operations to protect their revenue where possible by providing an extra pair of hands.
“We’ve been able to ensure robust business continuity for CETA because of the strength and flexibility of our new Infinity platform, and we can now share the benefits that that brings.”
He added that it would be “worth checking” that household policies provide cover for changes in working arrangements, for example in cases where valuable stock may be brought home to store as business premises close.
