Lloyd & Whyte Heritage may be a new name to the thatch and listed home insurance market, but it is in fact made up of the combined long-standing experience and expertise of two well respected brokers, namely Reedways Insurance Services and Simply Heritage, so be rest assured you are in very good hands.
Both Simply Heritage and Reedways have been owned by Lloyd & Whyte for more than 5 years and have both been operating as independent businesses within the same market place throughout this time. The development of both businesses has focused on understanding the needs of customers, understanding risk and developing insurance solutions that meet the needs of character property owners across the country.
In 2015, with the interests of service, product, advice, information and risk management in mind, both parties felt that they would be better equipped to continue that development as a single company under a single brand.
The legacy of both brands is significant and we are retaining the core elements of what made them successful, but as with all things in life, it is important to continue to evolve. Under the Lloyd & Whyte Heritage brand we will only build on everything that both have worked so hard to achieve and combine our knowledge and resource to move onto even greater things.
The business is now known as Lloyd & Whyte Heritage. The trading names of Reedways and Simply Heritage will remain for a brief period in a supporting capacity as we make the transition to the new name.
In addition to the change of name we are also taking this opportunity to restructure the business to provide simplicity for our customers and focus for our staff by having specialist, dedicated offices looking after each segment of the business.
Thatch home insurance
Thatch insurance will be dealt with exclusively by our Taunton office, so all existing thatch customers, whether previously Reedways or Simply, will be handled in Taunton.
Listed home insurance
Listed buildings insurance will be dealt with exclusively by our Sudbury office on the same basis as described above.
N.B. If your property is both thatch and listed then the thatch element takes priority and you will be looked after by our thatch office in Taunton.
Lloyd & Whyte was established in 1946 and is one of the largest independent insurance brokers in the South West. We would like to welcome customers of both Reedways and Simply Heritage into the Lloyd & Whyte family, and assure you that you will continue to deal with both thatch and listed specialists as you have always done.
