Tracey and Richard Huffer
“I’ve already started recommending Mark and the Teme Valley Insurance team to all local farmers. He’s going to help a lot of businesses in Shropshire!” says local farmer, Richard Huffer.
“My family have been farming cows and sheep since the 1940’s and we’ve never swapped insurance providers.
“I spoke to my then current provider and our insurance premiums continued to be at a disproportionate cost to the size of our 130 acre farm. They were astronomical year-after-year. It just didn’t seem right.
“I was going to get a couple of quotes and then Mark visited us. From then, I didn’t even do a comparison. Mark’s research, pricing and knowledge of our farm was second-to-none.
“Totting it all up, he’s saved us about £1500 whilst extending our coverage further than its previously been – giving us peace of mind across our cattle, building, vehicles and workers.
“That saving is massive for us, especially during a tough time in the farming industry.
“I couldn’t be happier. Mark carries a fantastic reputation with him and it’s truly deserved.
“I’ll be letting all my friends, colleague and clients - in Bitterley and beyond - to go to Teme Valley from now on. I’ve passed Mark’s details on to my son-in-law, who has already booked him in for a visit when his insurance is due for renewal in November!”
“There’s nothing Sue doesn’t know about farming. If she doesn’t know it, then it isn’t worth knowing!” said Powys farmer Alun Lloyd.
Sue’s experience in both insurance and farming tie together nicely, making her someone I wholeheartedly trust with my business. I’ve personally worked with her for around a decade and there’s nobody else I’d want to help sort my insurance.
We instructed Sue to help us out with our mixed farm insurance and fleet insurance, because we do dairy, sheep and arable farming here.
Every year, she comes up to the farm around four weeks before my renewal is due and checks everything – from tractors and cows to sheds and hay bales – to judge if my needs have changed.
We’re a mixed farm here, so there’s quite a lot to check over but Sue always goes right down to the nth degree with a smile!
Then around a week or two later, she’ll come back to us with a selection of options, stripping away the jargon. She’s always well researched, methodically and detailed to ensure we get the best deals we can.
Somehow – and I don’t know how – she saves me money on my policy every single year. This year, it was around £700!
I’ll definitely go back to Sue and the team at Teme Valley in a few weeks’ time when my policy is due again!
“Adaptable, knowledgeable and a focus on customer service – Teme Valley has got it all down to a tee.” said Stourport farmer Ron Harris.
It’s vital to me that insurers and people I work with have a knowledge of the industry. Trust is vital in farming and Sue is certainly someone I trust wholeheartedly.
I’ve gone back to Sue time-and-time again for help with my renewals – it’s got to the point now where she knows me and my family personally. You certainly wouldn’t get that on the end of the telephone with a large company.
Plus, unlike these huge companies, Sue visits me personally every time my renewal is due. We sit and chat through my requirements face-to-face to ensure I’m happy and confident in which services I’ll be going for.
We need many types of insurance – farming combined, tractors, two cars and employer’s liability cover. Sue secured me the most comprehensive cover to help me sleep easy.
And, with a £200 saving on my previous policy, I have a little extra money to put towards my 2019 policy!
Both Sue and Mark are a pleasure to work with and I’d recommend them to anyone and everyone!
“We couldn’t be happier with how Teme Valley Insurance acted to find policies that suited our business. They have been absolutely first-class from the moment we phoned them,” said south Shropshire farmer Jamie Grubb.
In any business, saving money is paramount and a high quality-service is similarly important…
…Teme Valley have both of those down to a fine art, saving us hundreds of pounds on our Farm Fleet and Farm Combined Insurance.
Sue and the rest of the Teme Valley team share our passion for farming and understand the minutiae of running a mixed farm, which is really important. I don’t have the time to spend on the end of the phone to a company who don’t know how I operate or the pressures I am under.
The best thing about Teme Valley is they aren’t a faceless organisation who hide behind emails and phone calls. Sue came up to join us in Obley for the afternoon to find out exactly the cover we needed and the history of the business.
We were with a larger well-known company originally, but they aren’t fit to lace the boots of Teme Valley Insurance.
They go above and beyond the level and detail of any company we’ve dealt with in the past. They always do what they say they’re going to and they’ve always got your back.
Sue and her team are fabulous and I couldn’t be happier. I can now sleep easy knowing that if the worst does happen, I’m comprehensively covered.
