Why Choose Sweeney Insurance Associates Ltd?

Welcome to Sweeney Insurance Associates Ltd 

Providing Insurance Solutions you can actually understand since 1988

Insurance Act 2015-       What it means to you

Insurance Act 2015- this became law on 12/8/16 and is much more user friendly than the old law which applied- there is a seperate FACTSHEET on the website for you to check if you follow the 'read more' link above. As always, if you have any doubts, call John Sweeney on 07900 692163.


Cyber Cover-                 Protect yourself online

Online crime is at an all time high- the culprits are clever, and employ sophisticated and professional methods to defraud you- cyber Cover is readily avaliable, quick and cheap- please contact us for details. 



Fail to Prepare               Prepare to Fail!

Recent HSE prosecutions continually quote that UK Companies must plan their jobs professionally with the safety of their workforce at the core their thinking- again, call us for advice and if we cannot help,we happen to insure several very good Health and Safety Practioners who could help you. 



Life Insurance                     Don't gamble with your life

You don't have to panic and go on the internet, not really knowing what you are wanting. We are completely independent and can sit down with you and discuss things- whether it is a simple 10 year Term Assurance or KeyMan Cover, lets talk.



Home Insurance                 Try Us!

You will be very pleasantly surprised- AXA, in particular, have a superb Home Insurance Contract- good cover backed by a quality insurer- you may not get a free pen or a cuddly toy.


But, what you will get is a very good policy and when the chips are down, our Managing Director will come to your home and sit down over a cuppa and conclude your claim professionally. 



Private Medical Cover           What's new?

We can arrange both individual and Group Schemes, many of which can be extended to include Family members and/or key members of staff. As always, happy to pop out and explain things for you. 



Doubling of penalty for drivers using mobile phones

The old law means that anyone caught using a mobile phone while driving will be dealt with by means of a traffic offence report, with a £100 fine and 3 penalty points. In more serious cases, police officers have powers to prosecute drivers for careless or dangerous driving and drivers may also be asked to provide a breath test.

From March 1 2017, drivers will receive six points on their driving licence and receive a £200 fine. These changes will have a significant impact on young drivers in particular as they risk having their driving licence revoked following a first offence.  Motorists will no longer be offered the opportunity to go on a driver awareness course.



A very warm welcome to our new look website! 


Within these pages we'll do our best to reassure you, as insurance is not complicated. It's about getting the right balance. Cover, cost and quality of insurance company are among the factors you need to consider. 


Here at Sweeney Insurance Associates you will find straight answers with no waffle. We are legally bound to tell you how it is, warts and all. Hopefully we will cover most things, if not please call us.
