BBC Radio 4 Money Box Live

TH March’s CEO Neil McFarlane will help to highlight the importance of properly arranged personal jewellery insurance and the UK jewellery trade when he is interviewed on BBC Radio 4’s flagship weekend programme – Moneybox Live.

Veteran broadcaster Paul Lewis plans to talk to Neil about how best to insure personal jewellery and other precious possessions in the home. The interview is a follow-up to a story previously featured on the programme where a man found himself being accused of fraud after making a claim for jewellery following a burglary at his home.

As acknowledged leading UK jewellery insurance experts, TH March was approached by producers to take part in the popular show.

Neil said: “Hopefully I’ll be able to highlight the importance of detailed valuations for jewellery and other valuables. We know from our claims statistics that having detailed information from jewellers and valuers upfront eases the process when a claim is made and helps to speed up the settlement. Our Trustpilot reviews from customers regarding claims supports this.

He added:

“I believe this is likely to be a good opportunity to highlight the work of the thousands of jewellers who are customer insurance referral agents and this can only be helpful for businesses and customers, particularly in the run-up to Christmas when sales and unfortunately, crime figures (along with insurance claims) are likely to peak”.

Catch Neil’s interview on BBC Radio 4 ‘Moneybox Live’ this Saturday, November 24th at 12 noon.
