Celebrating 20 Years

Celebrating 20 Years



This month Active Insurance Services celebrate 20 years in business. We have seen many changes in the insurance industry in that time and we have had to adapt and change the way we do things.

There has been lots changes in legislation, governing bodies and probably the biggest change of all is technology and the way insurance is purchased today. Whilst we have invested in technology which helps us find the most suitable insurance products at competitive prices. Our philosophy has never changed that we will always put our clients first and offer a personal service to everyone.

In 1996 when we opened our first office in the Ellesmere Centre in Walkden as Independent Financial Advisors, we never envisaged arranging car insurance, home insurance as well as business insurance.

We have helped many people buy their first home by arranging their mortgages insuring their buildings and contents even insuring their pets.  In 1996 Walkden had five high street brokers, today we are still in Walkden just a little further down the road and the only remaining high street broker and now we arrange all different kinds of insurance for all types of clients. We would like to say thank you to all our clients old and new for your support over the years as we know we wouldn’t be here today without you.

Thank you from all at Active Insurance Services
