Classic Motor Trade Insurance


have been with them for many years and there agent Lyn Pearson is extremely helpful and professional when visiting us every year, we have had many other companies approach us over last 20 years and not one of them are willing to make an appointment to visit us , so Footman James will keep our business for many years to come.
regards Sandy 'The Boss' :)
