What our clients say
"As a customer of Dennis Watkins for twenty six years they have always provided an efficient and personal service for both our personal and business insurance needs. A service that cannot be replicated online!"
"We have worked with Dennis Watkins and Co. for many years. At all times, they have given us an excellent service - efficient, professional, knowledgeable and always mindful of our specific needs. We never need to worry about our insurances."
"I reconfirm my grateful thanks for sorting out my claim so efficiently.
As you know I was Insurance Broker here in the local community with my Father Arthur H. Browne for some 28 years before we integrated with Brown Shipley.
I cannot stress the importance of dealing with an Insurance Broker rather than Direct with an Insurance Company. The mere fact that you can speak to the same person throughout makes life so much simpler and far more enjoyable. All my dealings with Dennis Watkins & Co, the Family, Andrew and Gill have always been a pleasure."
"A company I have known for over 40 years, and a team of people who have become personal friends. Efficient, professional, and knowledgeable but retaining a very personal service. "Compare-zee-market" if you want a cuddly toy, but come here if you want professional research and advice."
"We have used Dennis Watkins as our insurance broker since we started our business back in 1989. In all that time I have never doubted their professional expertise and this, together with their friendly and efficient service, makes it a pleasure to do business with them."
"Dennis Watkins & Co Ltd, whether the partners, or more recently the directors, or their frontline staff, have been dealing with all my family's various insurance requirements (home, household, car, foreign travel, foreign holiday home etc.) for as long as I can recall. They always do so most efficiently, with considerable expertise and very importantly with great friendliness and I have never had the need to look anywhere else for advice on insurance matters. Long may they thrive."
"I was recommended to Dennis Watkins back in 2008 and they have looked after our houses and cars since then. My wife and I own a small number of properties that we rent out plus our home and our two cars. Dennis Watkins always remind me when a policy is coming up for renewal and have got me some very competitive deals. I would strongly recommend them to my friends and anyone looking for help in finding a company to insure them."
"I've been a customer of Dennis Watkins for many years now. They look after all my buildings, contents and travel insurance and I never have to worry about remembering renewal dates or searching for the best deal. They know in detail what my requirements are and they make sure I don't just get the cheapest but also the policies that fit my personal circumstances.
I just had to claim off my travel insurance for the first time and the company they used paid up within days of receiving the claim. The only other claim I've had to make was on my building insurance for a water-damaged floor. Dennis Watkins ensured that this claim was handled in an extremely efficient manner and I was more than satisfied with the outcome. "
"Dennis Watkins & Co. Ltd have acted for our company for over 20 years, during which time they have dealt with all the insurances covering our office premises and contents, professional indemnity and employment liability as well as certain car insurances. We have always received a prompt, professional and helpful service and advice and have no hesitation in recommending the company to many of our clients and friends."
"I have used the Services of Dennis Watkins Ltd for my car insurance long before it traded under that name - indeed since the 1960s. At no time has the service been anything other than efficient, professional, speedy and polite. I shall continue to use Dennis Watkins Ltd for as long as I am able."
"I have been a customer of Dennis Watkins & Co Ltd for a number of years and they have covered all my insurance needs. They have a friendly, dedicated team who are both reliable and efficient in dealing with my requirements and any queries I have. I have been completely satisfied with the service provided and therefore would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone requiring insurance services."
"There are three reasons I use Robert Watkins and his company: I am confident that there is nobody more competent than him; I have never experienced customer service to rival them, ever; and I feel like Robert really cares about me. That is priceless. I can only suggest that if you need insurance and you're not using Dennis Watkins and Co, then you are not dealing with the right company."
"Just a quick note to thank you for your help today. It certainly beats D.I.Y insurance for both cars and household. My two years of leaving you and doing it ourselves was a nightmare - days spent 'phoning and e-mailing assorted on-line and TV insurers we have no wish to visit again. It is much easier to pick up the 'phone and leave it all to yourselves who understand the complexities of Insurance."
"I am being totally honest when I say that the service you and your firm consistently provides is second to none. And I deal with a lot of people."
"I appreciate the personal service that I receive from the team at Dennis Watkins. For example, a few weeks ago I received a reminder to pay my car insurance, which I completely forgot. Today, I received a telephone call reminding me that I had not paid and asking if I needed any help or advice. I paid, knowing that I would get a competitive deal. Without that call I would soon be illegally driving without cover. Thanks for the call, Gillian!"
"We are delighted with the support we've received from Andrew Smart at Dennis Watkins over the past decade. Unfailingly responsive and helpful, he not only provides the right insurance products for our needs but also takes the trouble to understand our business. Whenever an insurance issue has been a sticking point in our client negotiations, Andrew has been a constructive and reassuring source of advice. We can recommend him and Dennis Watkins without hesitation."
"I have been a customer of Dennis Watkins for over 4 years when I moved from abroad and have since placed all my insurances including motor car and motor bike and travel etc through their services. I have nothing but praise for their professionalism, courtesy and promptness they apply with everyday issues. My account Manager Tina also offers a lovely smile on every occasion."
We thank Dennis Watkins and staff for consistently meeting our expectations and for always being professional and charming.
We appreciate Tina Hall’s care and attention. And that of Andrew Smart previously.
"I've been using Dennis Watkins & Co Ltd for almost 3 years now. Their service and advice is second to none. Robert Watkins has dealt with all of my business and personal needs and I feel in very safe and professional hands. I would highly recommend them."
"I have been a client of Dennis Watkins for many years and have always received excellent one to one personal service and advice."
