Trustguard Manchester offers brokers free leads

Trustguard Manchester is giving brokers a free lead for every completed case in a bid to boost its business.

The first packager in the UK to offer door-to-door document collection when it launched last spring, the firm is making the incentive available to all its broker clients.

Craig Lamb, director of Trustguard Manchester, says: “The idea of the giveaway is to provide a virtuous circle for our broker partners. They complete a case and we’ll give them a lead that should create more business for us.

“Part of our appeal is that we go that extra mile for customers. We were the first to offer door-to-door document collection and we’re now going to give away free leads.”

Lamb set up Trustguard Manchester with co-directors Ron Jehu and Martin Breheny in March 2006.

The franchise of Cardiff-based Trustguard recently moved into new offices worth £750,000 in the Swinton area of the city.
