Broker Spotlight
Frank Ricks

26th May 2020

This month we were delighted to catch up with Frank Ricks, Managing Director of South East Kent Insurance Services, an independent insurance brokers based in Ramsgate, Kent that has been trading since 1996.

What core business lines does your brokerage cover?

Our core business is the taxi industry, but we also serve our local area with mainly personal lines products for people who still prefer to deal with and speak to people they know. 

How are you currently trading amid the Covid-19 pandemic?

As of Monday 11 May we are back trading from the office, but with the office not open to the public to visit yet.

How have you found business in these unprecedented times?        

It has obviously hit our taxi clients hard with many not working, so it is having a knock-on effect. Many of our clients are long term, so as soon as their business picks up so hopefully will ours.

What are your top tips on home working?

Some kind of timer lock on the fridge and no beer before 6pm.

What have you found challenging about working from home?

No beer before 6pm.

Which Blink products or services have been most beneficial to your business?
