Having insured boats with you for many years and never had to make a claim, I have unfortunately had two claims in under a year, both have been dealt with in an extremely helpful and efficient manner, no fuss, delay or prevarication. Linda has always been wonderfully clear, helpful and efficient. Thank you again.

This is the first time I have claimed on dinghy insurance and have found your communication and processes to be exceptionally clear, friendly and efficient - it has significantly reduced the stress I expected from this situation.

Your service is 100%, everything was easy. I never had to chase once. I only wish you did car insurance. Many thanks to the whole team.

While I very rarely have had to make a claim for a boat, car or house I have found Newton Crum to be the most prompt and efficient in dealing with a claim. The email photo service is an excellent idea. With thanks.

An excellent hassle free service, I would highly recommend to others to use Newton Crum. Have been a customer for many years and always found the staff to be really helpful about any question. In claims both Poppy and Linda were very efficient and helpful.

your staff were excellent, very sympathetic and helpful. I have never needed to claim in 20 years of sailing and I was very apprehensive but your service was first class and thanks to your help I am now 'back on the water'.

A first class plus/5 star plus service. Absolutely super help from Mrs Ransom. Best Insurance service I have ever had (for all areas of insurance).

I had a couple of telephone conversations with Mrs Ransom who was very helpful and polite. She is a credit to your organisation in helping to make the claiming and replacement of lost/stolen items more straightforward

All correspondence & contact has been dealt with professionally, promptly & politely. Your company has been a pleasure to deal with and I have already recommended you to others. Thank you.

At the time I issued my claim I was unable to find our policy details, your staff at Westcliff on Sea were extremely efficient + reassuring. Miss L Moore has been superb in speed and accuracy dealing with us by letter, email or phone. We are pleasantly surprised at the ease & speed of the entire process, thank you!

Newton Crum, you have exceeded my expectations, an absolutely faultless service, fast efficient and friendly. I dealt with Mrs L Ransom who was very helpful and made the whole claims experience a breeze. Thank you

This is our first boat- of our own though we have loads of experience- therefore our first claim, my son was so disappointed at the accident, however your company was so helpful and the cheque received so quickly was a real bonus. Thank you very much and hopefully we won't be in touch again- till next time!

Absolutely excellent service - first rate. This is the first time I have had a claim and I was very impressed. I will recommend you. Thank you.
