Jaxon contacted our helpline as he was finding it difficult to get public liability insurance due to his unspent conviction.
Jaxon explained that he had several convictions which he’d received as a youth which had led to fines and community orders. However, his last conviction had resulted in a four-year prison sentence.
Whilst in prison, Jaxon attended as many education courses as he could one of which was a barbering course. He was sure that this could lead to a job or self-employment on his release from prison. However, despite having the funding in place to open his own shop, he was struggling to find an insurance company that would offer him a suitable insurance policy.
The helpline advisor gave Jaxon the details of Unlock’s list of insurance brokers.
Jaxon contacted Unlock several days later and stated:
“I called a couple of the brokers on the list and very quickly got a really competitive quote from one of them. Thanks to Unlock I’m on the road to fulfilling my dreams of having my own business as a barber.“
