About Basinger Consultants

John Basinger started his first Business Continuity Consultancy in June 2006 in response to a demand for a new way of approaching Business Continuity Planning.

John’s background lies in loss adjusting, handling large and complex insurance claims in a career spanning over 35 years. In all that time, he never once encountered a business which had an effective plan to manage recovery of the business following a loss.

Working from a standing start inevitably meant restoration of the business was much slower than would have been the case if things had been pre-planned. The result was larger pay outs by insurers and adverse impact upon the company’s reputation.

The majority of business owners refuse to accept that disaster could affect them and choose to do nothing.

John therefore set about developing a practical, streamlined Business Continuity service that was both cost-effective and one which business owners could relate to, based on his experience of handling real life disasters and helping companies through those difficult times.

He has found that his extensive contacts in the insurance industry have been the most successful source of new clients. Insurance companies and brokers all see a clear link between a well-prepared client and reduced risk.

In July 2012, John was asked to assist with handling earthquake claims in Christchurch, New Zealand. That role kept him abroad until December 2013. Upon his return he has been building his consultancy.

Before he left for New Zealand, many Business Continuity clients had asked John to act for them in the event of a claim. The demand was such that John thought it was logical to add loss preparation to the services offered to his clients. He has therefore re-launched his consultancy under the name of Basinger Business Continuity and Loss Consultants.

John believes the combined offering of Business Continuity Planning and Claim Preparation is both logical and unique. We’re there to assist in preventing losses but will support our clients if something does go wrong.
