Wright Insurance Brokers & Irish Road Haulage Association strengthen bond

South East based insurance provider Wright Insurance Brokers has signed up with the Irish Road Haulage Association (IRHA) as official advisory partners to the organization for 2018.

Wright Insurance Brokers has a long-standing association with the haulage industry and handles the insurance requirements of approximately one third of the sector nationally. The company has built a reputation for highlighting the insurance issues that will impact the sector and where possible identify potential solutions. This approach has given road transport operators the opportunity to review their own business operation and make changes where problematic areas are identified. Its transport team also has a track record of working on behalf of haulage clients to achieve the best possible terms and premiums by challenging insurance companies to provide more competitive conditions and by introducing new entrants in the market who can provide a viable alternative.

Commenting on the strengthening of a long-established business relationship, Tony Wright, CEO Wright Insurance Brokers said; “We look forward to working in partnership with the IRHA and serving the best interests of our clients in the haulage industry. We recognise the challenges that the sector faces, both in relation to general operating costs and insurance terms, and are committed to championing the needs of the sector with our insurance providers to secure the best possible arrangement for our clients.”

Verona Murphy, President Irish Road Haulage Association added; “On behalf of the IRHA members, we are delighted to welcome Wright Insurance Brokers on board in a formal partner capacity, the team at Wright Insurance Brokers are some of the most helpful in the entire industry so I look forward to the year ahead, which no doubt will involve collaborative efforts on behalf of the members to provide competitive, affordable insurance quotes.”
