Throwing down the Gauntlet to find the best possible deal on insurance

A new insurance brokerage based in Spalding is opening up many new insurance avenues for business customers looking for better deals and more comprehensive insurance packages.

Gauntlet Spalding Insurance Brokers has an office in the Lovells Business Centre, St Johns Road, Spalding and is an exciting new venture headed by Mick Cunningham and owned by the Directors of Lovells Auto Body Centre.
In his own right, Mick has 30 years’ experience in the insurance industry and understands the insurance needs of the local Spalding community inside out.
Now, however, he has partnered with the highly respected Leeds-based Gauntlet Group, who provide valuable back-office support and access to a huge number of different insurers, who can help get a client the best quote available, or the most comprehensive or tailored package for their needs.
This provides Gauntlet Spalding Insurance Brokers with a competitive advantage and insurance options that other brokers often cannot access.
Gauntlet Spalding Insurance Brokers has a very experienced team, including Elaine Mothers and Aimee Fleming.
Both Mick and Aimee formerly worked at Shield Insurance, whilst Elaine was the manager of Norman C Williams and Son.
The team came together when those businesses were bought by Swinton Insurance a few years ago and are now proud to be embarking on a new chapter together.
Mick Cunningham says: “We are an insurance broker that delivers traditional business values, something that is sadly missing in today’s insurance market place.
“We are very proud to be able to offer a personal and tailored customer service experience to the people of Spalding and surrounding areas and can provide insurance protection ranging from business and commercial insurances, to fleet and personal car/home insurance, with much more besides.”
With a strong focus on motor insurance of all types, Gauntlet Spalding Insurance Brokers, in conjunction with Lovells Auto Bodyshop, also offers clients extra benefits. Customers receive mobility solutions and 24-hour accident recovery anywhere in the UK, as well as recovery services and a courtesy car on the same day of any incident, 365 days of the year.
Clients can be looked after with repairs to their vehicle by the Lovells team, managed by Jim Dawson, with Kirsty Manson, who also can arrange vehicle and van hire.
The business was a good fit for the Gauntlet Group, for which Gauntlet Spalding Insurance Brokers is now an Appointed Representative.
Gauntlet has over 20 years’ experience in risk management and the bus and coach insurance sector, as well as being renowned for its insurance solutions in motor fleet and haulage markets.
Its commercial insurance specialists work across the spectrum of commercial insurance, whether a client needs professional indemnity insurance, public liability protection or something more niche such as event insurance.
Gauntlet Group director, Paul Coates, says: “We are pleased to be working with Mick and the team and providing as much support as they need to ensure that their new business venture flourishes.
“We are sure that the brokerage will quickly gain a reputation for caring about its customers and providing them with the best insurance options for their needs and budget.
“By tapping into Gauntlet’s network of insurers, the team will be able to explore new insurance avenues on behalf of their clients.”
