Motor Ombudsman announces Howden partnership

The Motor Ombudsman has announced a new partnership with Howden to enhance services to both policyholders and members.

Following the agreement, Howden motor trade insurance customers not already accredited to The Motor Ombudsman – such as garages and mobile mechanics – will receive a tailored package when applying for accreditation.

Meanwhile, Motor Ombudsman-accredited businesses can now access a suite of benefits when taking out insurance with Howden. These include preferential premium rates and wider options around the level of cover.

Bill Fennell, chief Ombudsman, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Howden. This mutually-beneficial relationship provides our shared target customer base of independent motor trade businesses with access to a market-leading win-win collaboration.”

Jem Emirali, associate director at Howden, added: “Our partnership with The Motor Ombudsman reinforces our commitment to continually strengthening our offering to motor trade insurance policyholders, and driving awareness of our market-leading propositions to independent service and repair, and vehicle sales professionals.”
