A very personal and considerate approach to what was a very tense situation both personally and emotionally. Sam came to my house and explained all the scenarios. The case reached a very good conclusion.
I was very happy with the way my case was handled. I was informed of progress all the way through so I knew what was happening at all times. Sam Hirst was brilliant! I felt a very valued customer. Keep up the good work and high standards.
I was very satisfied. Sam Hirst dealt with my very professionally and sympathetically. She used all her skills for a very good outcome.
I was very happy with Sam. She was clear, easy to understand and friendly. I was over the moon with how easy she made things and the advice I received was spot on. If I ever need anything in the future I will definitely be in touch.
A huge thank you to Sam, I could not have gone through this process without her. She was there for me every step of my journey, and was there when I needed support, information and advice.
Polite and friendly, helped us through a process we previously had no experience or knowledge of. I was completely reassured and had confidence to allow Sam to take charge.
I can’t thank you enough for the way the claim was handled. After being in the accident, the thought of making a claim seemed like a lengthy and quite daunting procedure to take on, but you were really helpful and communication was brilliant throughout the whole thing. There was never a point where I felt confused or left in the dark about anything that was unfolding with the claim and the way you handled things was amazing!

My claim was handled very professionally and dealt with really well and quickly on Sam’s part I appreciate all that Sam and the team did.
