Coversure Nottingham was founded by seasoned insurance professionals Sharon and Paul Hartle in September 2004. Prior to becoming Coversure franchise holders, Sharon and Paul had held senior roles within other big-name brokers dating back to 1985. During this time, they both accrued a huge amount of industry experience. This meant that when they took the plunge and opened their own brokerage in Nottingham, they were well equipped for the challenges that lay ahead. Now, fifteen years later they have become established as one of Nottingham’s leading property, liability and business insurance brokers and enjoy an outstanding reputation for service and value.
Multi Award-Winning Insurance Service
Like so many Coversure franchise holders, Sharon and Paul founded Coversure Nottingham so that they could provide their community with an honest, local insurance service while becoming masters of their own destiny.
As anyone who has made the move from employed to business owner will tell you, it can be scary. Thanks to their knowledge, determination and willingness to go the extra mile for their customers, the office was a success from day one. Over the years it has thrived and the team has grown from two to six.
One of the team, Jane, joined them when Sharon and Paul acquired Coversure Loughborough in 2015. Buying the Loughborough office was a win-win for all concerned. Given its locality it meant that customers would see little disruption and could be assured of continuing excellent standards of service. It gave Sharon and Paul the growth opportunity they had been seeking and it allowed Jane to remain part of the Coversure family.
All this activity and success did not go unnoticed by the other members of the Coversure family and in 2006 they were awarded ‘Regional Branch of the Year’, following this up in 2011 with ‘Commercial Lines Branch of the Year’. In 2014 they won ‘Most Inspirational Branch of the Year’ and along the way they have also won two ‘Compliance Awards’ and a ‘Customer Care Award’. Then, in 2019, Paul was presented with one of the most coveted awards at the annual Coversure conference when he was named, ‘Business Expert of the Year’. This was a fitting testament to Paul, and as he is the first to point out, Sharon. As a team they have been keen to invest in their team’s skills. Sharon holds the Diploma in Insurance (Dip. CII), whilst Paul and 3 other members of the team are Cert CII qualified. Corie is currently working towards her first qualification.
Of course, all this growth and success inevitably meant that their former corner shop offices on Castle Boulevard were going to be outgrown. And so it was, that in their 15th anniversary year the team packed up and shipped out to their new, spacious home at Lady Bay House off Meadow Lane. The move marked the opening of a new chapter in the Coversure Nottingham story, one that will see them continue to build on their past success.
How Can Coversure Nottingham Help You?
Paul and Sharon founded the business in order to help both private clients and businesses get the protection they need for an affordable premium. Today, their team of dedicated, experienced specialists can draw on their collective expertise to help you with everything from landlord and liability insurance to professional indemnity and fleet cover. So, whether you’re a property owner, a tradesman, small business or home owner, they can help you protect what matters to you for less.
Since they founded their brokerage, Nottingham has been transformed from a middling Midlands city into a thriving hotbed of creativity, enterprise and culture. Thanks to the two universities, it has become an acknowledged centre of digital innovation and has attracted thousands of talented young people who are keen to be part of the scene. Subsequently the rental property market has exploded, driving demand for landlord insurance quotes through the roof and allowing Coversure Nottingham to become the city’s home of great value property insurance.
Why Choose Coversure Nottingham?
Insurance broking is all about service. It’s about helping people and businesses to get the cost-effective cover they need to protect what matters to them. Sometimes clients know exactly what they need and are simply looking to get high quality, low cost insurance policies. More often, however, a conversation with the team will reveal potentially costly issues that they weren’t aware of. For example, did you know that if you’re a landlord and one of your rental properties becomes vacant for a period of time – sometimes as little as 30 consecutive days – that standard landlord insurance cover may not cover you and that you need unoccupied property insurance? If you are unaware of issues like this and something goes wrong that could cost you dearly so it’s always worth talking to a team that know their business.
Another great reason to choose Coversure Nottingham is that they are independent. Unlike some other brokers they are not tied to any one insurer and have the freedom to scour the market to find you a great policy for a great price. Not only does this give them a competitive edge, it also means they can offer protection for hard to place or obscure risks – Coversure Nottingham even insure a beach! Thanks to their being part of the Coversure family, they also enjoy privileged access to some of the UK’s leading insurers, so you can expect affordable, quality cover that’s backed by outstanding service no matter what you need.
