Why use us for your home insurance?

iStock_000018000389XSmallIf you are looking for home insurance, at Alan Blunden we will be happy to help you find a suitable policy. But why should you use our service in the first place? Here are some of the reasons why our customers choose us.

More choice

We have access to a large number of insurers, with over 30 currently on our books. We have excellent and long standing relationships with them and we know their products inside out, so we can match you to a suitable policy using our own specialist knowledge.

Local service

If you are looking for a local service, we like to think we provide the best home insurance Southend residents can get. We are proud to be a local company, and sometimes it is good for you to know that we are just down the road. We are here to help and advise, whether in our offices and face-to-face or over the telephone.

We may even be able to provide special deals for people living in the nearby area for other products, such as car insurance

Competitive premiums

We cannot not say whether our policies are cheap or not, because that is something only you can decide. But they are extremely competitively priced. Our home insurance premiums are surprisingly low, starting at just £75, and for the amount of protection and peace of mind they provide, you may well find that to be money worth spending.


A good insurance provider has to be flexible. Insurance is never a one-size-fits-all solution, and if you go to a company that only has one option, this may not provide you with what you require. We can provide cover that is flexible to your needs. For example, you may require just buildings cover, just contents, or a combined policy, and we can arrange this.

Subsidence and flooding cover

These are particularly tricky areas because many people who have already experienced one of these serious problems may have difficulty finding a suitable level of cover.

However, we can provide cover in both situations so now you know that your property will be protected. Flooding is especially important because many areas of the country are affected by it, but this does not mean that homeowners in these areas should not get access to cover.

Good reputation

We have been operating for over half a century and we are not one of those companies that appears and disappears within a few years. We really know our stuff, and it is what sets us apart. If you want to know that you are getting the very best service from specialists, you are in the right place.

Here to help

We don’t just sell you a policy and disappear. If you need to make a claim, we are here to help. We provide a full service, and that includes help deciding on the most appropriate policy as well as after-sales help and support.

No pressure

We don’t have call centres, we have professionally trained staff in our offices here in Southend. We won’t read out scripts that are designed to get you to buy, and we won’t bombard you with the hard sell. Our reputation has been built on providing honest advice that is designed to help you find the most suitable product for your situation. We take the pressure off so you can make your decision in your own time.
