Cornerstone Hospitality Ltd

I was recently advised that I should look at getting insurance cover to protect my business and family. I took the opportunity to get in touch with Insurance Base and was very professionally dealt with by Jason Hennessey.

Jason took the time to look at my situation closely and advised on all aspects of insurance that would be relevant to me. Jason gave me all the information that I needed to make an informed decision on the best Insurance cover for me, my family and my business, should anything happen. The Team at Insurance Base also took care of all my ACC requirements, ensuring I wasn’t paying too much and had the correct levels of cover required.

I found Jason to be very honest and respectful, he is very professional and has a huge understanding of all Risk Insurance Cover types and was able to put these in plain words without me getting confused. He was very efficient in getting the paper work filled in correctly and getting my insurance processed quickly.

I would highly recommend Jason, his knowledge is reassuring and his professionalism invaluable.

Thanks Jason,

Coombe Smith Chartered Accountants

Just wanted to say thank you. Fiona and I really appreciate you taking over our life and risk insurance policies. We really valued you taking the time to go through all the cover with us, especially indentifying a policy that we no longer needed. It is nice to have someone looking after our best interests, and paying less is always a bonus!

From a business perspective, we have been really impressed with how you have looked after a number of our clients and in many cases reduced their ACC premiums while providing a better level of cover.

We look forward to you helping more of our clients.

John Brown Electrical Ltd

Last year, after being in business for two years I approached Ross Fowler from Plus4 Insurance Solutions regarding Income Protection Insurance. I found Ross to be helpful and very knowledgeable about the products that he handles. He is not the stereotypical “pushy” salesperson but rather points out the benefits of his products and lets his clients weigh up the risks of not having adequate insurance. I decided to take Income Protection Insurance and Trauma Insurance on Ross’s recommendation. I am extremely grateful for Ross’s advice as approximately one year after taking out the Trauma Insurance I suffered a heart attack. The relief of not having to worry about finances while I was recovering was incalculable. I strongly recommend Ross to anyone considering Insurance cover.

Stevens Orchard Lawyers

Business insurance is a complex discipline and involves not just putting insurance cover in place but also ownership structure, buy sell and shareholder agreements and  taxation to name a few. Running a busy practice we did not have the time to deal with all of it. So it was a great relief when Pete in his clear professional manner was able to identify our potential risks and offer appropriate tailored solutions.

“We have had an association with Alan Bradnock and PlusFour for our personal insurances as well as our business insurances for many years now. The quality of advice/professionalism and integrity as well as the client service offered by Alan and the team at PlusFour has been fantastic. I have and will continue to recommend their services to family, friends and other professional acquaintances.”

Paul Bell • Managing Director


It’s reassuring to be able to rely on someone to give competent, expert and relevant advice in a very busy world. For us at Heslops it’s about fixing trucks and heavy equipment. We like dealing with Alan Bradnock, he looks after our business issues and the concerns of our families, he always has options for us to consider, it’s never a sales situation.

Jan Aberhart • Company Manager

Zindels Lawyers

“I regard Alan Bradnock as a very efficient and principled insurance broker. He is good about getting back to you and keeps you updated about other products that are available to suit your changing needs. There’s also no waffle about him, which I find very refreshing.”

Phil Matz

“As an architect with a team of people relying on me to generate income and trying to think about protecting not only the business against many risks all businesses face on a daily basis, but also the risks we as a family face every day, was just too hard. Alan Bradnock’s processes and his professional yet easy manner made it easy for me to protect what mattered. The PlusFour approach is reassuringly independent.”

Over the years I have met a number of his clients and know that he takes a personal interest in their success, helping them build their businesses.

I have been a client of Chris Mackay for many years now and have been happy to take his advice on insurance and financial matters.

Chris’s help has allowed us to put financial worries aside and get on with enjoying life.

The team at Chris Mackay Financial Planning were fantastic to work with when I needed to make a claim.

The Smalley Family

Pete Rickards was fantastic. He reviewed our insurances using the PlusFour process and not only do we now have the number 1  rated policy in the market but a previous loading and exclusion has been removed. He listened to what we said and came back quickly with a clear and concise report.  At all times we felt he was working to do the very best for us and we are very happy with the outcome and confident we are well covered for our circumstances. I would definitely recommend his services to any of our friends.

Simmonds Ball Engert

Ross Fowler provided expert and practical advice that greatly assisted our understanding of which products were appropriate for us and why. Ross ensured that every question we asked was answered to our full satisfaction and in a timely fashion. We also found Ross kept the whole process simple and stress-free.
