A personal service from our team

Weatherbys Hamilton operates from five offices; near Newmarket and Swindon, in Wellingborough and London, and most recently Penrith. From all these locations we are ideally placed to visit our clients at home or in their offices and to provide the hands-on personal service that is our hallmark. Each office can access our complete range of insurances and all aspects of your account will be handled from one office. All five are linked by a common telephone and IT system which enables the full resource of the firm to contribute seamlessly to the personal service that we provide. Every member of the Weatherbys Hamilton team is dedicated to providing the best possible personal service that they can and to establishing a relationship that makes insurance as straightforward as possible for our clients.
