When we contacted COHIBL to report on our insurance arrangements we were extremely impressed by the approach, thoroughness, and level of service we received. From day one COHIBL have undertaken the necessary strategies to ensure we have all the adequate cover we require, assisted us in reducing our claims frequency and all the while keeping our premiums competitive.

Product Manufacturer

I have been a client of COHIBL for nearly 20 years my experience with dealing from the top down has been exceptional. All aspects of our requirements are taken care of without fuss and efficiency.

They explore the market and always come back both with the best solution and the most competitive rates.

Importer, Exporter, & Wholesaler

I first met Martin O’Hara in about 1985 when he worked for another brokerage, and he looked after all my personal insurance needs. When Martin and Chris started COHIBL we transferred all our policies to them, and they have looked after me ever since.

It has been a pleasure being a client and great friends with them both.

Private Client

We have worked with COHIBL for 10 years and are delighted with their accurate advice and timely responses. COHIBL provide us with the highest quality insurances for our Umbrella employment business and Personal Service Company clients.

As specialists in contractor and freelancer insurances, we know we are working with one of the best around, providing us with a range of insurance policies including public liability, professional indemnity, and employers’ liability insurance.

COHIBL understand the high standards that our company have and deliver a quality service to agreed requirements. I would highly recommend working with them.

Umbrella Company

We are Haulage Contractors delivering various major customer locations to destinations across the mainland UK and have been a client of COHIBL’s for numerous years. Over this period our business has expanded and COHIBL have always been on hand to make sure all aspects of our business are correctly insured. They have continuously been readily available throughout the Insurance Year on the phone or face to face to pass on their expertise.

Transport Sector

We have been a customer of COHIBL since Chris and Martin started the company. The best testament I can make is that in all that time, we have never considered nor would ever consider any other broker. Such is the level of service and strength of relationship between the two Companies that it is one of those rare situations where business and friendship are one and the same.’

Powder Coating Company

COHIBL have provided excellent advice and service in meeting all our insurance needs in the past 12 months. Their team take the time to understand our business needs and source suitable quotes, as well as clarifying clauses on the more complex elements of our business.

Independent Business Media Company

Melanie and Steve have been fantastic, they’ve both gone above and beyond. Their assistance with our own insurance policies and property construction jobs has been invaluable, not only saving us thousands of pounds but also helping us find proper contractors. I’m fortunate to have found their firm when I did!

Property Owners

We have had the pleasure of working with George Bentham since the start of our Employee Benefits Programme back in 2021.  George has continued to work tirelessly to ensure that all the providers and options presented to us were suitable for our business and more importantly our employees.

Once we had settled on the best way forward.  George put together a plan to ensure that not only did we roll out great benefits but also provided a fountain of information for our employees.  Ensuring that everyone was provided with the tools to make informed choices about their future.

George has a passion for people and this is reflected in his hands on approach to the excellent service he provides.

Global Logistics company

At first I was quite reluctant to move insurance brokers (familiarity and years of history etc), but having spoken with Melanie at Caunce O’Hara and allowing them initial access to one of our renewals, I’m a convert.  They now handle all our group cover.

It’s not just the cost saving (which isn’t insignificant). There’s a human voice at the end of a phone, not some AI generated script, or a far-off call centre handling the enquiry.

They deal quickly with discretion and professionalism.  I would highly recommend COHIBL and I’m not even on commission!

Property Owners

We had a great experience with the employee benefits service at COHIBL.

The initial investigation into competitor offerings was enlightening and gave us a good platform on which to honestly review where our shortcomings were. Furthermore, the examination of our existing package revealed we were doing many things right but their scoring system illuminated the areas in which we could look to improve.

The potential additional benefits we could include were laid out thoughtfully and clearly with explanations of their impact and, where applicable, how they worked in a real setting. Not only that, multiple options for each benefit were offered and costed which allowed us to decide which worked best for our business with the guidance and collaboration of the COHIBL benefits team.

The team were then able to strategise an effective communication strategy to educate our staff fully and to promote engagement with the products we already had as well as the additional ones being taken out. We were really impressed with how well the workforce received the changes and the increased uptake in staff signing up to the relevant services we offer.
