Insurance discounts

On behalf of its Members, West Northumberland Community Buildings Consortium (WNCBC) has negotiated discounts and other benefits with three companies that sell specialist insurance for the buildings and contents of Village Halls and other similar Community Buildings.

Each hall is responsible for insuring its own premises, and to benefit from the discounts on offer, members must obtain quotations from one or more of the companies – making the company aware at the time of obtaining the quote(s) that you are a member of the WNCBC.  To get the best deals, it is recommended that members obtain a number of quotations so that they have a comparison.  Members will need to ensure that the quotations obtained are comparative in terms of the risks that they cover.  Members are responsible for submitting the correct details of their requirements to the insurance companies. They are also responsible for evaluating the quotations and their subsequent acceptance of any quotation.

It must be stressed that the WNCBC cannot offer financial advice or guidance in the selection of a company for the insurance needs of your Hall or Community Building and neither can it recommend or favour any particular company.

Set out in the link below below are the results of negotiations with various firms but there may be others in the market that you could deal with and possibly achieve a better package. It is the responsibility of each member to obtain quotations and to enter into a contract with their chosen company.

The full details of the agreement are given here.  It is worth reading the information carefully before proceeding any further.
