"Up until recently we have used another well known veterinary insurance broker, but we decided to give Shire a chance to quote this year, we were shocked and delighted that they shaved over £800 off our policy, for better cover too. The quote was sent after a simple call, they were efficient, knowledgable and got the job done with no fuss and for less! Well done Shire."
