30 years later Footman James is proud of a heritage based on successful relationships with vintage and classic vehicle enthusiasts and clubs: providing specialist insurance for owners, collectors and professionals in a competitive market.
From humble beginnings we now have:
- A customer base of well over 100,000 policyholders
- Operate a customer service centre of well over 100 enthusiastic team members
- Deal efficiently with 1,000s of requests a day through telephone calls, on line and the post
All customers benefit from a level of personal service you would expect from a specialist insurance broker such as Footman James. Our aim is to provide relevant, quality cover at competitive premiums.
