We are delighted to announce that Coversure Hull has acquired fellow Hull insurance brokers Wilberforce Insurance’s client base. The acquisition is part of Coversure Hull’s founder Andy Price’s strategic plan for post-pandemic growth. Coversure Hull is well-known locally and nationally for its commercial vehicle, fleet, and truck insurance services. The acquisition of Wilberforce’s business with its focus on taxi, travel, and landlord insurance will create a one-stop insurance shop for the people and companies of Hull and East Yorkshire.
Coversure Hull: ‘Buy-to-Build’
This is the third acquisition Andy has made in the past three years. In 2019 he acquired Coversure Grantham, and in 2020 he took over North Lincs Insurance in Cleethorpes, which became Coversure North Lincs as part of a buy-to-build strategy.
Commenting on this venture, Andy said:
“I’m really excited about this latest chapter in the Coversure Hull story. Wilberforce Insurance has earned a great reputation over the past ninety-seven years, and we’re looking forward to offering their clients the same great service. Their offering is complementary to ours. This fits perfectly with my long-term goal of offering business, commercial vehicle, and logistics insurance clients everything they need under one roof.”
To ensure continued client service, Andy plans to keep the Wilberforce office in Kingston House, 50 Bond Street, Hull, open alongside his main office at Dunston House, Livingstone Road, Hessle. This will allow him to operate a two-centre site that will make it even easier for business, commercial vehicle, and landlord insurance customers to access the great value insurance quotes.
About Coversure Hull
Coversure Hull Group was founded in 2005 by Hull-based entrepreneur Andy Price. Andy was quick to grasp the opportunities afforded to him by the rising number of people searching for high-quality, affordable insurance quotes online. This, alongside networking and client recommendation, meant the business thrived, and he soon had a team of specialists working alongside him.
Andy hit the acquisition trail to augment the Hull office’s impressive organic growth. In 2019 he acquired Coversure Grantham, and in 2020 he bought North Lincs Insurance, the aim being to establish a chain of offices along the East Coast. Bringing Wilberforce Insurance into the fold strengthens this position and paves the way for further takeovers in the coming years.
