Retailquip engaged McCormick Harris Insurance and in particular Tony McCormick to undertake a review of our National insurance requirements two years ago on referral. We now do all our business and personal insurance through Tony and compared to the service received from our previous broker of some years we could not be more impressed. Quick response, excellent advice and a pro-active approach to our requirements makes the process with McCormick Harris simple and easy, be it claims queries or annual reviews.- Tom Hart-Davies – Retailquip
