About Us

Our Business


We are an expanding and dynamic firm of  independent insurance brokers and have been trading (originally as WMC Buckland & Co) since 1920 and grown every year since 2000. We are Commercial Insurance Specialists based in Manchester city centre working in all sectors. Clients range from micro businesses to employing 1000+ and stretch right across the UK.


Our Approach


Do you feel you have to choose between:


  • Small independent that cares for its client and large businesses with buying power?
  • Traditional businesses with integrity and forward thinking businesses with vision?


We combine the best of both, with:


  • A unique combination of insurers & facilities,
  • Remain fiercely independent, backed by Cobra network’s £1/3bn buying power.
  • An advanced system which allows us to provide consistently good service.
  • Keen, motivated & experienced staff who will know you by name.
  • Some of the best value for money deals available.
  • But perhaps best of all, we listen to what you want and find new ways to help your business.


We take the greatest care to ensure our staff are fully trained to offer the best advice, and have been Investors In People Accredited for over 15 years.


We take the greatest care to ensure cover and claims are dealt with in the best way possible. To this end, we deal with claims in house and have facilities so that our clients can be supported by a nationwide network of independent Loss Adjusters. We are also registered with the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS). Further details are available https://financial-ombudsman.org.uk
