We are excited to announce our affiliation with Wessex Insurance Services, offering our members a bespoke service at preferential rates. Wessex Insurance understand that small and unique businesses often require tailored insurance cover coupled with the peculiar requirements of occupying railway property and the obligations of both landlord and tenant. As we have large national trade networks, Wessex Insurance are also able to procure the best rates based on quantum for specific trades and industry sectors. By negotiating collectively we have secured a benefits package which includes a dedicated team and helpline with free expert insurance and risk management advice whilst supporting our work as an independent non-profit organisation.
“our membership is growing on a street by street level, we are supporting tenants in each community to bring small businesses together in each row of arches, under each railway line in the UK. This has never been done before on this scale and what’s absolutely amazing and deeply moving for me, is that when our members join us they understand the value in what we are creating is far deeper rooted, they join us not asking what this organisaiton is offering them but rather, what can they can do to help!” – Leni Jones, Director GOTA
