Britain’s first online insurance broker, Screentrade is to re-launch on Monday 7 April 2014 and is set to provide car, van and bike insurance to the UK. Their first products to launch will be motorbike and van insurance, with car insurance set to launch in the summer.
Their new website www.screentrade.com is now live and features a timeline describing the Screentrade story; from their original launch in 1997 by software company Misys, through to their acquisition by Lloyds TSB in 2001 to their eventual re-launch now by Devitt Insurance Services Ltd.
Devitt purchased the Screentrade brand from Lloyd’s TSB in 2011, but have been arranging Screentrade car insurance since 2001. Screentrade compares quotes from some of the UK’s leading insurers including Ageas, Aviva, AXA, Equity Red Star, LV and Zenith and will therefore allow customers to get the cheapest and most suitable quote available from their panel of insurers.
Screentrade motorbike insurance is packed with great benefits and will tick all the boxes for bikers, offering free Legal Expenses and Personal Accident with Helmet and Leathers cover for the first year of insurance. There will also be free Legal Expenses cover included for the first year with Screentrade car insurance.
“The Screentrade brand has been a prominent player in the car insurance market for years under Lloyds TSB. Its new product offering is fantastic for customers with free additional cover in the first year” stated Devitt’s Managing Director, William Hughes. “We’re going to be building upon the brand profile once again, as our research has indicated that there is still strong Screentrade brand recognition in the UK.”
