New IBO Technical Advisory Service

The IBO announces the launch of a new technical advisory service specifically designed to meet the needs of insurance companies.

When policies are due for renewal, there is often the need for the trade to value a pipe organ on a new-for-old replacement basis. Following a claim, the IBO can also provide assistance in assessing the worthiness of technical proposals.

The IBO has unrivalled expertise on pipe organ matters of a technical nature and can call upon specialists as required. It operates a ‘conflict of interest’ policy to ensure any advice given is fair and unbiassed. Enquires to use the service should be directed in the first instance to the Administrator.
