Coversure enjoyed a fantastic year in 2019. We opened new offices in Sevenoaks, Burnage and Rochdale, saw several of our existing offices make significant acquisitions and welcomed new members to the family.
Yes, 2019 was another great year, but what does 2020 hold for the UK’s largest independent insurance franchise? Well we’re certainly not going to rest on our laurels and in this new blog we’ll outline some of the exciting developments that you can expect from us in 2020.
A Brand-New Look
Coversure was founded in 1986 and while much has changed in that time, our branding has remained much the same. The silver rings on the white or baize green background have become recognised on high streets up and down the land as the symbol of a local, honest, independent insurance service.
Times change though and following on from 2018’s Management Buy-Out and the fresh ambition it brought in, we have decided to bring our branding right up to date. In 2020 you’ll see your local Coversure office transformed as a new logo, signage, new-look interior and completely redesigned website are all rolled out. Unlike some re-branding exercises, ours is so much more than a new coat of paint: the re-brand reflects our renewed commitment to providing our customers with the finest independent insurance service and our desire to keep pace with their ever-changing needs.
Coversure was founded to offer local communities an honest, accessible, affordable insurance service – a guiding principle that remains with us to this day. The wider industry trend over the last few years has been to close physical branches in favour of an online-only service. Now we are as big a fan of online as the next brand, but when it comes to something as important as your insurance, we believe that nothing beats the personal touch. That is why in 2020 we will continue to buck the trend and back the high street by adding new offices to our existing group of 95.
We are committed to extending our highly-rated service to as many people as we can, but we won’t do so in a gung-ho fashion. As our CEO Bob Darling puts it, “We’re not interested in adding pins to a map, but in creating sustainable businesses that can serve a community’s insurance needs.” This means that when a Coversure office comes to your area, you can rest assured that you’ll have a service provider that you can trust and rely on for the long-term.
Even More Great Value Insurance Covers
The world of insurance moves pretty fast. New legislation, new threats, new ways of working and playing and new ways of getting about, all present challenges to insurance service providers like us. To make sure we can protect your world we’ll continue to work with our insurer partners to offer you the protection you need.
In 2020 you can expect everything from Airbnb insurance and other property policies to electric commercial vehicle and fleet insurance. With Brexit set to (finally!) happen, 2020 is likely to be quite a year and we will be there to help you protect what matters to you.
New Franchisees – Could You Be One?
Coversure’s franchisees are at the heart of what we do and we are looking forward to welcoming more into the fold this year. With the ability to run their own business, backed by the award-winning support of the Coversure brand, we can offer potential franchise holders the chance to open a brokerage and become masters of their own destinies.
So, could you be our next franchise holder? If you have at least three years’ insurance broking experience, are self-motivated, passionate about customer service and want to build your own successful business then we would love to hear from you.

What Does 2020 Hold for Coversure?
As you can see, 2020 is going to be another exciting year for Coversure; one that’s set to be full of growth and change. One thing that won’t be changing, however, is our commitment to providing you with the best insurance service. Whether you need to protect your car, your business or your home, let your local Coversure office help you protect what matters most to you.
Here’s to a great 2020!
