BGi.uk in association with Omar Group launch Omar Insurance
In an industry first, insurance broker BGi.uk has teamed up with Omar Group, the leading designer, manufacturer and solution provider to the park home and luxury lodge marketplace, to launch Omar Insurance.
Following four years of significant growth, the acquisition of Wessex Unique Lodges & Park Homes and the creation Omar Parks Development Services (OPDS), Omar Group has diversified further into the world of insurance through specialist insurance broker BGi.uk. This unique partnership enables both parks and residents, to not just purchase one of the beautiful park homes or lodges that the group produces, but to also protect their investment.
Traditionally, insurance policies offered to residential park and holiday home owners have been less comprehensive than a typical household product. Omar Insurance products provide all the key features and benefits enjoyed by traditional homeowners, whilst meeting the demands and needs specific to residential park and holiday homes. In addition, park operators can apply for a tailor-made policy to ensure all of their park’s properties and commercial liabilities are covered.
This new partnership is the brainchild of Richard Sigsworth, Special Projects Director at Omar Group, who also heads their new division OPDS which leads potential park operators from land ownership through the whole park development and operations process. Richard comments, “The residential park home and lodge marketplace has seen strong growth in recent years, with individuals transferring substantial personal wealth into a park home or luxury lodge, this investment must be protected. With the launch of Omar Insurance, customers can now take advantage of a bespoke insurance policy designed exclusively and specifically for residential park and holiday homes.”
BGi.uk (then known as Bordengate Insurance), were trailblazers in this specialist insurance sector, launching one of the first bespoke products for mobile homes and park operators. Over the last 30 years, BGi.uk have developed and grown, working closely with park operators to structure their parks in order to minimise against a range of risk factors including flood and storm damage. This new alliance between BGi.uk and Omar Group enables Omar Insurance to provide park operators and their clients with a tailored product and expert service, by a provider that really understands the industries unique needs.
