His knowledge and customer service levels are outstanding, his attention to detail is exceptional, whether it be on some day to day operational requirements or more strategic risk guidance at board level. He is a key and trusted advisor to myself and my clients, and look forward to continuing our long standing relationship.

Tony Ricciardi | Director: CK Direct Duct & Maintenance Ltd

Smith of Derby Limited have been trading since 1856. Working with the best and most trusted partners in every part of our concern is something we therefore take very seriously. Through the years our company has experienced pretty much every form of business interruption you can imagine. Trading internationally is also an important part of our offer and service. When the unexpected happens, and it does, you need an insurance partner who understands your business, is responsive and empathetic when you call. Professional, knowledgeable, experienced and, of course, competitive. We use the following services: Vehicle, Public, Products, Employers Liability, Professional Indemnity, Contract Works, Buildings, Contents, Travel and All Risks. We enjoy all of this through Wheatley’s Insurance Brokers Limited. That’s why we have been working personally with its Managing Director, Chris Wheatley, for over 20 years.

Bob Betts | Managing Director: Smith of Derby Ltd

I have worked closely with Chris Wheatley for around 15 years. When we first met I explained that my expectation for a successful relationship was to know that I was getting a good deal on my insurance BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY to know that all aspects of my business were properly insured to the correct level with the appropriate type of cover. He has continually exceeded this benchmark. I run two businesses and do not have time to look into every aspect of every policy at each renewal. Chris visits us for a quick walk around to see what has changed within the business and then seeks renewals and alternatives to suit. He follows this up with a visit or call (depending on how busy I am) to chat through the options and to make me aware of any changes to the policies that he feels would be appropriate. Chris takes the pain out of renewals whilst ensuring that we get the most appropriate products. Additionally, Chris and his team are always at the end of a phone to take the pain out of any claims we have had to make. They help with the paperwork and are happy to liaise fully with the insurance companies on our behalf. In all honesty, the service we receive feels more like having our own insurance department. They are most definitely part of our team. Chris has built up a level of trust within our companies that is unshakeable.

Paul Lewis | Director: T.G.S. Ltd & Lewis Aldridge Joinery Ltd

Chris Wheatley has been the company’s insurance broker since 2008. His level of service is excellent, he is very knowledgeable of the specific requirements of our business and delivers the information in a straightforward easy to understand manner. He is always available to give help and advice, on many occasions over and above what he is expected or required to give. Chris is a thoroughly nice, decent person who is passionate about his work and gives 100% commitment, I would recommend him without hesitation.

Alison Greenfield | Company Secretary: Thomas Howse Paints Ltd 

We are a small manufacturing company based in the centre of Birmingham and started in 1975. As you can imagine we have used quite a few Insurance Companies and Brokers in that time but Chris and Kerry Wheatley are second to none. We have been clients since 2007 and would not consider changing. We can rest assured that all our insurance policies both private and for the company are dealt with very professionally and no headache for us. We recently made a claim and I cannot believe the service we were given. It transpired we did not in the end need the claim and it was just quietly sorted. We would very much recommend Chris and Kerry Wheatley for any insurance policies you require with great sincerity.

Patricia & Roger Clinton | Directors: Kiley Clinton Engineering Ltd

Chris has been advising PGS Roofing Ltd for several years with regard to all of our business insurance matters. He is professional, knowledgeable and always strives to understand our business needs; ensuring the polices recommended are the best match for our company. The excellent service he has provided has given peace of mind to us, our staff and our customers. We would have no hesitation recommending Chris and will continue to put our trust in him.

Paul & Katherine Share | Director / Secretary: PGS Roofing Ltd

Frameclad have had the pleasure of working with Chris Wheatley and his team for the past two years. They have always been most professional and helpful throughout the whole process of insurance renewals. The ongoing assistance also is exceptional. Quick to respond and always go above and beyond.
