Coversure Insurance Services

Coversure Newcastle have dealt with our business and personal insurance policies for six years. I can't fault the service provided by Janet and her team. Their professional approach and honest advice adds value to the complete package of services Coversure Newcastle provide. I would not hesitate in recommending to friends, family and business associates alike. 5 STARS!

I have had my insurances with Janet and her staff at Coversure for a lots of years. As another reviewer said, the staff are friendly and able to give advice - rather than faceless call centres. Super!

Excellent customer service

My wife and I have just returned from a weekend stay on Parkdean Resorts park at Sandy Bay near Ashington . This was previously a Park Resorts Holiday Park. We booked a pitch in the touring park for our 7 metre, 3.5 ton motorhome, for three nights. on arrival we found that we had been allocated a pitch right on the clifftop. The pitch was on grass that was waterlogged in places and the rest was soggy at best. This was a very busy weekend and the touring area was full, so we had no choice but to pitch up. On Saturday morning we found that the motorhome had sank about 4 inches into the grass and went to report it to the staff in reception, we were told that all pitches were allocated and could not be relocated to another pitch,that the park wasn't sure if they were going to keep a touring area very much longer, so no improvements were planned for the future. We were informed that all maintenance staff were very busy so left our mobile number for them to contact us however no call was received. On Sunday morning after being required to sign a damage to vehicle waver, ground staff used a tractor to pull my vehicle closer to the road network and I put mud mats under the front wheels. I again asked at reception if we could be relocated to a flatter area on the park just for the night as we were leaving early on Monday morning. My request was again denied as again I was informed that all pitches were allocated. when it was time to leave on Monday morning, I found that my vehicle had sank again and was unable to get off the pitch. My wife went to the reception to request assistance once again and I spoke to the site warden, who radioed through. After being told we would have to wait 10 minutes we ended up waiting over an hour for help to arrive. This could have been avoided as the pitches on level ground further up the touring park were still empty when we eventually left the park. The toilet and shower block on the touring site, although spotlessly clean were an old wooden cabin and about 20 years out of date. There is no grey water drop area for motorhomes and only one fresh water fill tap attached to the side of the toilet block to fill water tanks. Other amenities on this site were new but were more for the holiday parks static caravan clientele. In general, the staff were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our weekend away, the views along the coast are great, there are good dog walking trails and the beach was great for long walks with the dogs, for this, my wife and I would visit this site again, however in future we will go in drier weather and book a flatter pitch further up the touring park area.

Inland Revenue's Internet service for self assessment. In common with most Government sites it looks as though it was designed by an undertaker. However, once we had gone through the long winded verification process, we did manage to pay our personal tax in minutes without the site crashing which was great.

Sadly the site is still a work in progress if you have a partnership or a trust. Incredibly these organisational forms still require third party software to enter their accounts. Remarkably HMRC seem quite happy with this situation!

TaxAssist Accountants

Spaceworks, Benton Park Rd, Newcastle upon Tyne NE7 7LX, UK – 0191 223 6795

I have used Tax Assist in Gosforth for the last six tears, since forming my own limited company. From the start, the team has been friendly, informative and always supportive. I value very much their support in management accounting, corporate reporting, VAT accounting and PAYE. I have complete confidence in their professional abilities. They unload me of so much worry that I would otherwise bear - leaving me free to get on with what I do best.

I have used taxassist for 3 to 4 years now and never had any problems whatsoever.Great approachable staff are just a phone call away ,nothing is a problem for them.With very competitive rates i wish i had switched years ago and saved a fortune.Keep up the good work thanks.

Grange Park Post Office

67 Great N Rd, Newcastle upon Tyne NE3 2DQ, UK – 0191 285 3493

I have no idea which newsagents the previous reviewer visited but the only local post office connected to a newsagents is at Brunton Park. This is at the back of a cafe and delicatessen. I wonder if he's got them mixed up, I hope not as the other post office is great too. Grange Park Post Office is one of the best in Gosforth. Staff are brilliant, go over the top to be helpful and nothing is too much of a bother. There's usually parking outside and the post box has a collection after 5pm which is a bit of novelty now as most are 9am these days.

I really like the staff. The manager and his family are really nice. Always obliging and customer-friendly. It beats the pants off any other post office I've used. He also sells some really nice foods, biscuits, cakes etc that are special and a cut above those you find in supermarkets You can even relax with a tea or coffee etc and read the morning papers!
