Read on to find out a little bit more about us, including how we started, what brands come under our umbrella and the secret behind our success.
County Insurance Consultants Ltd are part of Global Risk Partners Limited (GRP), one of the UK’s largest independent insurance intermediary groups. GRP comprises a national network of personal, SME and middle market insurance brokers, leading Lloyd’s and London market insurance brokers, and an Underwriting Division providing a range of specialist and niche insurance products.
The County Group started out as a traditional high street broker situated in Congleton, Cheshire. Established in 1882, the company traded under the name of Heath and Blackshaw and existed primarily to serve the local community through its team of 5 talented people.
When the current management team took over in 2003, the company was renamed The County Group and things haven’t stood still since. We now have offices across the North of England, the Midlands and Wales, employ over 300 people and handles an amazing £90 million worth of client premiums.
The County Group work with a panel of UK’s leading insurance providers and financial lenders. With over 16 years’ experience, our relationships with our partners are second to none. This means that we can negotiate rates and terms on your behalf to help you find a great deal.
Due to our strong relationships with our insurers, we are able to find competitive rates to our clients.
The County Group is a modern, forward-thinking insurance broker offering a traditional personal service. We work hard to invest in the latest technologies that make our services more accessible to consumers, source high quality policies and strive to keep our prices low.
However, this is also underpinned by the desire to go the extra mile for our clients, treat them as individuals and keep them coming back year after year.
Through over 30 long-established and widely recognised sub-brands, we provide a complete spectrum of personal and business insurance solutions. All our brands have market leading positions and offer expertise within their niche areas.
Some of our most well-known brands include insureTAXI, insureFLEET, JSW Insurance as well as well known high street branches such as Wrexham Insurance, George Williams Insurance and much more.
We're proud to help so many businesses with their insurance needs. Have a watch to see how we've recently helped some local businesses get the right cover in place at a cost effective price.
