IAM Surety voted top for car insurance
A Northern Ireland insurer has been named best provider of car insurance in the UK by readers of Auto Express magazine.
IAM Surety - part of the company formerly known as Adelaide Insurance - was also named best value in the UK in 2012 and 2013.
Adelaide Insurance was renamed Cornmarket Insurance Services last year when it adopted the name of its parent company. IAM Surety provides insurance for the Institute of Advanced Motorists. The firm came out tops for friendliness and helpfulness, keeping customers informed and value for money.
Managing director Sam Geddis, who founded Cornmarket Insurance Services in 1991, said: "The difference between us and other companies is that we talk to our customers, and they talk to us.
"We specialise in providing insurance services throughout the UK and Ireland to nurses, teachers, trade unions, advanced and professional drivers and motorcyclists, and our customer groups are continuing to expand.
"Each customer group has tailor-made insurance products, serviced by dedicated teams who have made this prestigious award possible."
Emily Lowe of Auto Express said: "It's a fantastic result that should definitely be celebrated. Our readers hold IAM Surety in high regard."
Employee numbers at IAM have grown from 23 to 90 in the past eight years.
