About Us

Melville Burbage are an independent insurance brokerage with particular expertise within the construction and allied trades industry.

We have been providing insurance solutions for both commercial and private clients since 1960 and have a wealth of experience and expertise. We pride ourselves on providing excellent customer service and working with clients to provide the widest possible cover at a highly competitive rate.

We have many years’ experience providing tailored solutions for a wide range of clients within the building and allied trades, and fully understand the risks involved in the construction industry.

In particular, we specialise in arranging insurance for contractors engaged in lighter hazard building trades with an annual turnover of up to £25m. This enables contractors to undertake contracts across a wide range of areas, from straightforward domestic installations to more complex commercial applications, knowing they are fully protected. We also have experience of working with both trade associations and affinity groups.

With access to all the leading insurers and specialist underwriters, we are able to arrange bespoke policies, with enhanced wording, if required, covering such areas as contract works, plant, warranties, bonds and JCT liability.

Clients can be assured of the highest standards of personal service, and we will always spend time gaining a full understanding of your needs to ensure we provide the widest possible cover at a very competitive premium.
