Insurance broker back at Fishergate

It’s been a couple of years since an insurance broker occupied Fishergate, until A-Plan Insurance stepped in and took over the old Swinton branch. Whilst other brokers are typically moving off or away from the high street, A-Plan are bucking the trend by consistently opening new branches each year and Preston is no different.

The A-Plan branch opened its doors back in 2020 and is being run by local man Joe Petherwick. Joe previously worked as the Branch Manager at A-Plan Wilmslow for five years, but when the opportunity arose, he decided to transfer back home to Preston with his wife and children.

Joe comments “I’m delighted to have opened an A-Plan branch in my hometown as I know the people of Preston will really appreciate the personal service which we offer. Clients still really value being able to speak to and see us face to face, which not many insurance businesses do nowadays.”

Joe continued to add “We’re really proud to be part of the Preston community and want to help clients with their car, van and home insurance. We’ll also be able to support a range of local businesses with their insurance needs in the coming months, as we look to recruit new members of the team. And if you’re a local business, there’s other ways we can support you, from our community noticeboard initiative, just call in to find out more.”

A-Plan first opened its doors in 1963, now having over 100 branches across the UK, also opening four new branches every year, we are now one of the largest specialist insurance distribution groups in the UK, providing a large range of insurance products.
