Home Emergency insurance
Another happy customer who received a boiler replacement contribution under their Home Emergency insurance policy.
Cover provides emergency repairs for primary heating and includes oil, LPG and biomass, and assistance for plumbing and drainage, electricity, gas and water supply, security and access, roofing, pests and lost keys issues.
“I spoke to a lovely lady who went above and beyond to assist with my boiler breakdown. The investigation was booked and attended straight away, which led to my boiler being replaced.
My claim was handled quickly and professionally and without Home Emergency insurance cover, my house would be without hot water, I cannot thank you enough”.

“When you are being presented with facts about things that require legal understanding, it can be both daunting and scary.
The legal advisor was calm, patient, and clear, non-judgemental yet supportive and my issue was managed professionally and sensitively, thank you.”

At Arc Legal, we recognise that work is a significant part of people’s lives and so their mental health should be preserved in the workplace as it would be with physical health.
