Builder Contractor Management

We get contractors on-site as soon as possible to repair properties following a claim - reducing the overall cost. We provide early start and finish dates, using skilled trades and guaranteed repairs.

Service Overview

Insurers and their policyholders need reliable, cost effective contractors to complete repairs quickly after a claim.

Whether the damage is caused by fire, water, weather or another peril, get in contact with us 24/7. We will act promptly to repair the building cost effectively and quickly, reducing the lifecycle of the claim.  We will identify the trades needed on site and provide them via our trusted contractor network, keeping you and the policyholder informed with easy to read reports.

In 2014 we dealt with around 15,000 individual projects in the UK with a value up to £1.1million. We also provide this service in Australia – with a network that covers every state.
