About Us

Central Insurance is an independent broker offering a wide range of insurance products. From terraced houses to stadiums, multi-national company insurance to insuring a weekend trip to Paris, if you need something insuring, Central can help.

Whether you need insurance for business or personal needs, the helpful and knowledgeable staff at Central are on-hand to arrange all your insurance requirements for you no matter how big or small they may be.

The bonus of utilising the skills of the experienced team of experts at Central doesn't come at the expense of the policy rates. Central have quadrupled in size over the past four years and have used the growth of the company along with the traditional family values the foundations of the company are built on to forge strong links with all of the UK's major insurance companies to offer competitive discounted rates on all insurance categories.

Central Insurance was founded in 1989 by the Yates family who had worked in the insurance industry since the 1960s. Using the wealth of experience gained in the industry both with Prudential and in the Brokerage sector, Central Insurance is still proud to be independent and has never needed to activate or rely on the ever-increasing number of broker network schemes.

Starting with one corner office on Central Drive in Blackpool, the business grew to occupy the two neighbouring properties by 2003 and in 2010 the Commercial Department moved to the new Head Office on a brand new business park on the outskirts of Blackpool. With Mark Yates leading the team from the helm, Central is on course to celebrate its most successful year on record as the 25th anniversary celebrations begin!

Central is also moving with the times technologically and can now offer online quotations for most general insurance products.
