Client Testimonials


“This was our first time dealing with Ascend Broking, our renewal was coming up for our insurance policy and I wanted to get a comparison quote. The service I got from Eddie was 10 out of 10, he come back to me quickly, always returned my calls and got us a fleet policy after I was told we would not be able to as we have only been trading a year.

I would recommend Eddie and Ascend broking to anyone that wants to cut out all the messing about and get the right cover quickly and professionally.

Thank to Eddie and the team at Ascend Broking.”

“Insurance is complicated, we don’t have time or resources to figure it out ourselves and, just like legal or finance matters, it’s important to get right, so we trust the experts.

Matthew and his team are incredibly friendly, helpful, responsive and great communicators. They also show genuine interest in our business; it’s not just a paperwork box-checking exercise, which is quite refreshing for a professional services provider.”

So please let all your staff be aware of the top class service they have given. I will be recommending Ascend Broking to my friends, and companies that we work with.”

“We require very specialist insurance coverage and national brokers failed to find the correct cover for us. We were referred to Ascend and the team took considerable time to understand our business and the sector, before discussing with their longstanding contacts.

The outcome is that we have a bespoke programme and are delighted with the outcome.”
