Installsure work on behalf of the home improvements industry, specialising in providing Insurance Backed Guarantees (IBG’s). Installsure were formerly known as the GGFi, however recently rebranded as Installsure to better reflect future service offerings from the company. If you have an existing Insurance Backed Guarantee with the GGFi then nothing has changed in regards to this, everything is still valid with Installsure.
What is an Insurance Backed Guarantee?
An Insurance Backed Guarantee is an Insurance product which protects the homeowner should the installation company cease to trade.
Insurance Backed Guarantee’s are not guarantees themselves but insurance products that back guarantees. For this reason it can be more useful to refer to them as guarantee insurance policies or warranty insurance policies.
Essentially upon completion of the job Gardinia will provide the customer with a guarantee to protect them in the event that something goes wrong with the installation. However, should the company cease to trade before the guarantee has expired then this guarantee can no longer be fulfilled.
However with the Installsure Insurance Backed Guarantee in place the policy’s underwriters will consider claims under the terms of the original guarantee for the remaining period of the guarantee.
Essentially to summarise an Insurance Backed Guarantees is an extra piece of mind for our customers, however as Huddersfield’s longest established window installation company trading continuously for over 35 years, this is something we hope you will never need!
