Local insurance broker to Okehampton and West Devon

A new Insurance Broker opens in Okehampton!

Actually, Versatile Insurance Professionals Ltd was founded in Okehampton in 2005, although we have moved over the years from East Street, then to Cranmere Road, finally ending up at Bridge House in Fore Street.

We specialise in business, property and liability insurance.

We are a local success story having started with just 3 staff 10 years ago, and now employing nearly 30 people between Okehampton, and our Surrey offices.

Up to now we have been virtually unknown to the local community because we have specialised in niche areas of insurance which have been sold through our call centre, to customers all over Great Britain and Ireland.

In the markets that we compete in, we are usually one of the biggest and well known providers of that type of insurance, such as to photographers, new-builders and land owners.

We were very sad to see the closure of the last local insurance broker to Okehampton and district, last year. They had a great reputation with very well liked staff with a very long heritage as part of the community.

Obviously this creates a business opportunity for us because there are a great number of businesses in the Okehampton area they still favour a personal service dealing with local people they get to know, and do not wish to deal with a call centre a long way away.

At Versatile Insurance we do not sell car, motorcycle and van insurance because we cannot compete with insurance comparison web sites where vast amounts of policies are sold with a very thin profit margin. An expert and personal service, such as the one we provide, will only work where there is a need from the client for professional advice, and recognition that the cheapest price is not necessarily the best policy!

Price is, of course, very important. In order to keep our costs down (and therefore our client's premium as well!) we have been delighted to be invited to share offices with our good friends at Mansbridge and Balment estate agents, at Bridge House.

This will give them more footfall (which is sadly lacking in this day of searching for properties on the internet) and give us a shop presence in a prominent position in the main shopping area of Okehampton.

Obviously, we are also looking for business from the surrounding towns of Tavistock, Launceston, Hatherleigh, Chagford and Princetown as well as the villages at Lewdown, Sampford Courtney, Lifton, Yelverton, Gunnislake Mary Tavy and many, many more places too numerous to mention!

We are therefore pleased to announce that from 2nd March 2015, we will be opening our first "shop" for business, property and liability insurance. We also offer home and travel insurance arranged with discounts for local businesses and a special offer for clients wanting to keep their current insurer and renewal premium, but transferring their policy to our agency.

Just ask one of our friendly staff about what exclusive deals that we have to offer to local businesses when you call in to see us.
