About Us

Footman James was founded in 1983 to establish a professional insurance broking service specialising in plans for niche markets

35 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.

We can provide cover for classic cars, classic motorcycles, replica & kit cars, high value vehicles, multi-vehicle, motor traders, wedding & funeral hire, club & exhibition, competition cars, specialist sports cars, support vehicles and even historic buses
