    Testimonials

    I have only been dealing with Yutree for a short period of time but during this time I have been very impressed with their response times, staff attitude and most of all very competitive rates. A Rated security with a quick turnaround has helped us secure new business and hopefully it continues.

We have had excellent feedback from brokers using it, and have no hesitation in supporting Yutree. BIBA has a commitment to raised standards and we can totally support the service and product Yutree offers via the scheme.

    Steve White - CEO BIBA

    Yutree Insurance provide an excellent service and their quotations are not only very competitive, but are provided in good time, well in advance of target deadlines. Their underwriters are experienced and a pleasure to deal with and are always available to discuss a risk when some flexibility is required, whether in respect of premium or terms, to ensure they are suitable for the client.

    Yutree have helped us out with several recent cases and have provided terms for risks which other insurers have been reluctant to provide. In addition to an exceptional service their suite of products offer wide cover with low excesses and Lloyds security across a diverse range of industries.
