If you value the personal service and advice, you have specialist or complex needs then an insurance broker is for you.  An insurance broker acts as an intermediary between clients and insurance companies.  They use their in-depth knowledge of risks and the insurance market to find and arrange a suitable insurance policy that meets your needs.  A broker will always act in the interest of their clients and offer products from more than one insurer to ensure that their clients get the best deal.

We have access to a large panel of markets, including leading insurers such as Towergate, Aviva and AXA, this allows us to provide excellent cover at a competitive price. We are not tied to any one insurance company and are able to offer professional, independent advice on insurance tailored to suit your requirements.

R K Shipman is a member of the 'British Insurance Brokers' Association (BIBA)' which is the UK'S leading general insurance intermediary organisation representing the interests of insurance brokers and their customers.  Being a member of BIBA shows our commitment towards personal service and advice.

If there is a specific insurance cover you are looking for, please contact us and we will assist you in the best way we can to find what you are looking for.
