LMI Group NZ recognises United Movers and Donaldson Brown with a Phoenix Award.

The Phoenix Award is awarded to those clients who emerge and flourish after an insurable event. It recognises the tenacity and fortitude of all involved. With this in mind, LMI Group NZ (Paul North, Claims Manager) are proud to present this award to United Movers and their brokers Donaldson Brown.

United Movers suffered a devastating fire at their Auckland Branch late on Friday afternoon, 4 December 2019. The fire gutted the entire building that housed their Head Office and Auckland Branch, which contained Customer goods.

Fire investigators will return to United Movers in Takanini after “explosions” heard in large blaze on Wednesday.

Within 10 days they had sourced an alternative premises and began trading again. This allowed them to search for premises that suited their needs. They had recently upgraded their fire affected site to be more efficient for the handling and storage of Customer goods. By July 2020, they had been able to relocate the Branch to a new and long term premises which allowed them more certainty and efficiency when handling and storing their Customers’ goods, and the business continues to thrive.

LMI Group partnered with both Donaldson Brown and the team at United Movers to get them back on their feet after the loss. If you or your clients have experienced a loss like this, please contact us below.
