  • I am very happy to recommend Collidge & Partners to fellow narrowboat owners. They are immensely helpful, and it's a delight to speak to someone as soon as you ring. No automated phone calls! An excellent company with knowledgeable staff. Nothing seems to be too much trouble and they really do treat their customers well.

  • I can thoroughly recommend Collidge & Partners as a Marine Insurance Brokerage. Following a burglary of my narrowboat whilst moored on the River Trent, the company reacted swiftly and without fuss when processing what became a significant claim for the stolen electrical equipment. This is exactly that quality of service that one needs when dealing with what is already a most stressful event. Thank you Collidge & Partners, you can be assured of my continuing business for years to come.
