Walmsleys have had a presence in Wigan since 1926, and Walmsleys Commercial was formed in 2004 to concentrate exclusively on providing a specialist insurance service to commercial clients, both locally and throughout the UK.

Everything we do is centred on our desire to deliver excellent service and value to you. We go beyond the norm to ensure that we handle your needs effectively, not just at renewal with a competitive price, but all year round.


Since 2004 Walmsleys Commercial have invested heavily in new technology and quality, experienced personnel to try and make life easier for everyone. In 2008 we joined ‘Brokerbility’ – a group of highly ethical, well respected independent insurance brokers that jointly control in excess of £550m of premium income. This ensures that whilst we remain independent, we can access terms and service that are not available to many of our competitors.

Here at Walmsleys Commercial, we like to get to know you and your business well so that we can ensure that we provide you with the best possible cover relevant to your business needs at the best possible price.

Walmsleys Commercial controls a significant book of Motor Fleet insurance business on a national basis, and have set up a separate division to capitalise on our expertise. Expert advice and precise marketing enables us to offer a unique package of benefits.

We also offer Motor Trade Policies at very competitive prices to the Motor Trade. We have set up a separate division for this sector. Our premiums are generally between 10-40% cheaper than our competitors in the vast majority of cases, and we offer true specialist help – rather than a ‘bolt-on’ service that our competitors seem to employ.

All of our staff undergo regular training and assessment in accordance with FCA rules. Our experience and expertise is widespread and, with a dedicated team of 24 to handle our clients’ needs, there are few risks which cannot be successfully insured.
