MCC having a (foot)ball with Ballymena United Football Club

Here at MCC Insurance Brokers we love local, meeting the insurance needs of those in County Antrim and across all of Northern Ireland from our Ballymena and Ballymoney offices for over 50 years!

We are happy to announce our sponsorship of this weekend’s Ballymena United Football Club game against Coleraine Football Club on 10th March 2018. We were immensely proud of their bringing home the League Cup last year and we wish them all the success this weekend in an important fixture.

We are running a competition in association with Ballymena United FC and you can win a signed ball by answering this simple question:

Visit our website ( and tell us the amount of discount that a young driver can get on their Young Driver Car Insurance. Simply email your answer and contact details to with the subject title ‘BUFC Competition’.

Have a check on the Ballymena United FC website ( or Facebook page (, or our own ( ) , for more details.

Competition will run until midnight on Sunday 11th March 2018 and the winner will be chosen at random and contacted the week beginning 12th March 2018.
Whether it’s personal or commercial insurance, advice, or simply yelling on our local team, at MCC Insurance Brokers we’re here to help.

Parent/Child Home Insurance Advice – Northern Ireland

Parent/Child Home Insurance Advice – Northern Ireland

At McCarroll McConnell, we believe that we can meet your insurance needs at a competitive rate. Based in Ballymena and Ballymoney, we have been helping our customers across Northern Ireland for many years.
It is always essential to get the proper insurance cover in place. Sometimes it is helpful to explain why things need done a certain way. After all, knowledge is power.

Parent/Child Home Insurance Advice – Northern Ireland

Are you a parent signing your home over to your children? If you are then make sure that your child is then the one who insures the property.
This is part of the conditions of insurable interest – it means that the person who insures the item must have a financial stake in the item being insured. They would stand to lose out should something happen to the property.
For example, if parent A signs their property over to Child B then they no longer own the home. That means they cannot insure it because it is actually Child B who now stands to lose out should something happen to the buildings.

Parent/Child Home Insurance Advice - Northern Ireland

What about contents?

If Parent A is still living in the home and keeps their own contents they can insure these themselves. We will gladly look at a range of insurers to get you our best deal here.
This does mean that you may have to take out two different policies.
It would be unfair and wrong of us to try and tell you otherwise. After all, in the event of a claim we want to make sure you are fully covered with the right product in place rather than not making these things clear to you and leave you open to having a claim rejected.

Getting your Home Insurance covered correctly is one of the most important things you can do. Cheap is not always cheerful.

Any questions? We are here to talk these things over with you.

Cash for Kids say:

Cash for Kids lends a helping hand to disabled and disadvantaged children aged 0 to 18 years across 21 areas in the UK by means of our grant giving process.

Grants awarded go towards buying specialist equipment for children to enhance their quality of life. They are given to children’s charities and organisations to help them undertake projects and new initiatives or to ensure that much needed services can continue to provide essential care and support.

All the money raised on behalf of Cash for Kids stays in the area it was raised in providing a helping hand when and where it is needed most.

Thanks to your kind help and support we are able to make a massive difference to the lives of the children that need our help across the UK.

We pledged to raise at least £100 between now and the end of the year for Cash for Kids which serves disabled and disadvantaged children throughout Northern Ireland and at the time of writing we have already surpassed this amount! But we can always do more…

Join us?

We will be doing dress down/up days, more coffee/baking mornings (watch the space) and whatever else we can think of between our two offices in Ballymena and Ballymoney.
But we would love you to help out as well.
Anything you could give would be greatly appreciated and of course all proceeds go to the Cash for Kids 1000 faces campaign. View our fundraising page here to see our progress and donate!

McCarroll McConnell are delighted to support the Cash for Kids 1000 faces campaign – hopefully you will join us too. Are we ready? 3,2,1…. Go!

Insurance – Northern Ireland

Insurance – Northern Ireland

McCarroll McConnell Insurance Brokers offer competitive insurance to our customers throughout Northern Ireland. Are you feeling the pinch?

One of the biggest issues on people’s lips when we speak to them in 2017 is the rising price of insurance. The BBC News has featured rising insurance premiums in articles over the past few months. Click here and here to read more –  they give some business insight on the issue; Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) increase, compensation payments, increasing average payments.

We, at McCarroll McConnell, want to look after our customers, many of whom are local and known to us personally.

We know that people are always looking for good value insurance, but also good cover insurance. Many people want to deal locally with a face and a name they can trust. Can you have one without the other? Can you be competitive and comprehensive?
Young driver insurance? Sure. Classic car insurance? Of course. Standard car insurance? As standard. Our home insurance. Safe as, well, houses. Commercial insurance? Job done.

Here at McCarroll McConnell we will be honest with you. We will not promise you the world. It wouldn’t be fair, it wouldn’t be transparent, and it wouldn’t be accurate!

But what we will do is promise that we will give it our all to give you the best that we can source for you. Often this includes fantastic benefits like protected no claims, breakdown cover, legal cover, cover for your keys. If you don’t want the extras, then that’s fine, too. We are here if you want advice on whether or not to take them.
We don’t like gimmicks. We like honesty and good value.
