Buckingham Insurance Consultants Limited

Insurance Brokers Derbyshire and South Yorkshire for 40 years

Buckingham Insurance was established 40 years ago and offers a friendly, professional insurance broking service to businesses and individual customers alike.

Getting expert advice from Buckingham Insurance won’t cost you more.   Like the comparison sites that everyone uses today we usually take a commission from the insurer for selling their insurance products.

Unlike comparison sites, we offer professional advice and can speak to the insurers for you, building a policy that comprehensively covers you for what you need while ensuring you don’t pay for cover you don’t.

If you would like to talk to one of our team about your insurance please feel free to call us on 01246 575 625.

Andrea Jacques
Andrea JacquesHR Director
As a Director of the Buckingham responsible for HR, Andrea is rightly proud of the team. “We’ve got a close knit bunch, and I like to think that it reflects positively on the business that so many of us have been with the business for many years.”
Lee Moody
Lee MoodyOffice Manager
Like many of the team, Lee’s worked at Buckingham Insurance for over a decade. As well as dealing with day to day issues, Lee often deals with commercial insurance and some of the more complex policies.

Lee recognises that the amount of regulation around insurance products can make them somewhat confusing to the end customer – and see’s Buckingham’s key strength is being able to take that strain up on behalf of clients, ensuring they get the cover that they need.

Daniel Eastwood
Daniel EastwoodInsurance Advisor
Daniel has worked in the business for more than four years, rapidly gaining industry experience and knowledge.

Daniel deals with the whole range of clients, but spends a lot of his time with personal motor enquiries and renewals. It’s here that he recognises that while the businesses biggest competition comes from on-line sellers, its also the businesses biggest opportunity to stand out though a genuinely personalised service approach.

Jamie Houghton
Jamie HoughtonInsurance Schemes Manager

A positive thinker, Jamie reckons there’s no such thing as a bad day, “only ones you should learn from!”

Ripley Office

Alan Cheetham
Alan CheethamOffice Manager
Alan is a rarity in the Buckingham Insurance office – he lives more than 5 miles from the office! In fact, Alan holds the current office commute record at 22 miles – one for every year that he’s worked for the business.

During that time, he’s seen the way that the insurance industry works change significantly, particularly thanks to email and the internet speeding every aspect of the process up. While a fan of technology, he admits he enjoys it when a client needs a vintage car or something unusual insuring.

Clare Swift
Clare SwiftInsurance Advisor
Clare has been ‘front of house’ at Buckingham Insurance’s Ripley office since the turn of the millennium, and recognises that for many local customers, being able to pop in and speak with someone face to face is a significant bonus. “We’re a local business, and it’s clear that knowing they can call in and speak to a real person if they’ve got a problem or want to discuss something, means a lot to people.”
Michael Dixon
Michael DixonInsurance Advisor
Michael looks after clients day to day needs, working out of the Ripley office. While he admits most enquiries are straightforward, he enjoys the challenge when something unusual comes along – like the motorbike ice cream van he found cover for a little while ago! “The internet was struggling to put that one into a neat little tick box, I expect, and its a great example of when coming to a broker can make all the difference.”
