Why become a Caunce O’Hara partner?

With over 25 years experience in the contractor, freelancer and small business sectors, we can offer your clients specialist cover, a fast and easy online journey and award winning customer service.

At our expense we will provide you with a quotation engine including both your logo and business colours. You can add this to your own website, share in customer marketing or include in your onboarding process.

Not only can you relax safe in the knowledge that your customer have insurance cover that’s bespoke to their needs, but as cover has been purchased through your quotation engine, it earns you a commission.

We are a part of Markel UK, a specialist insurance company established over 25 years ago that protects over 200,000 small businesses in the UK.

Markel UK is a division of Markel International, an international insurance company which looks after the commercial insurance needs of major businesses, SMEs, professionals and sole traders.

Markel International is a division of Markel Corporation, a US-based holding company for insurance, reinsurance and investment operations around the world, that trades on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: MKL).

Our system doesn’t do glitches, but if you do need any assistance your dedicated Relationship Manager is on hand to help.

You’ll be provided with access to our customer relationship management software allowing you to see in real time just how many of your customers have purchased their insurance from us.

This will allow you to see for yourself that your customer has not only purchased cover with us but also that they have renewed the same. In addition, you will be able to clearly see transacted premiums allowing you to forecast your commission payments.

We don’t just offer insurance. As a part of Markel UK, we can offer your clients access to tax and legal services through our group companies Markel Law and Markel Tax.

Examples include:

  • IR35 assessment tool
  • IR35 contract review
  • Access to a 24hr legal advice helpline
  • Access to the Markel Law Hub, with over 1,200 DIY legal templates

Our staff are experts in what they do and by being a Caunce O’Hara partner your clients will be in safe hands.

We insure thousands of companies across 100’s of industries, our online insurance is underwritten by the most reputable insurers and serviced by our expert staff who are on hand to help if needed, contacting customers who have navigated away from your quote engine within 5 minutes of them doing so.
