About Us

Here’s The Deal.

At R Collins & Co, we understand that no two situations are the same. Good relationships are built on strong foundations – that’s why we offer a truly independent service, tailored to you.

We want to ensure you receive an insurance policy that is appropriate for you and your circumstances. So when your renewal date rolls around we won’t push the same policy on you twice, instead examining how your circumstances have changed and recommending appropriate action.

As we’re not tied to one of the big-name insurers, we can provide you with a truly independent service at competitive prices. And if you need to make a claim, you’ll be dealt with by our highly professional and understanding team.

Local Knowledge, National Backing.

We know our local area, community and businesses like the back of our hand. After all, we’ve been here for over 40 years. But our membership of Broker Network – the UK’s longest-established network for independent commercial brokers – means we’re not alone. Our relationship allows us to source cover from an extensive network of insurance providers, and gives us access to exclusive deals which we pass straight on to you.

Supporters of The Prince of Wales Hospice.

At R collins & Co, we are proud to support the Prince of Wales Hospice. The Prince of Wales Hospice cares for patients with life-limiting illnesses including cancer, motor neurone disease and chronic heart and lung disease. As a member of their “Club 5”, we are dedicated to ensuring they are able to continue with their invaluable work.
