About Us

About us image

Celebrating our 50th anniversary in 2008, having originally been established in 1958 by Fred Gardner, F C Gardner & Co are "independent insurance brokers", authorised by the Financial Services Authority (FSA), and members of the British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA).

We provide insurance and risk solutions for the business community, from the one man band to small and medium sized businesses of up to 250 employees, and have access to a full range of insurance products using a large panel of insurers. Dealing with most classes of business and industry, F C Gardner & Co have also developed particular experience in the Haulage and Marine Cargo sectors.

We are proud of our independence. We are not owned, controlled by or tied to any Insurance Company, Bank or Network so we always act in your best interests, representing you, obtaining insurance quotations from a range of suitable insurers, comparing them and making our recommendations.

When you become a client of F C Gardner we value your business and will strive to provide the best possible service in handling your day to day insurance requirements and will go that extra mile to ensure your claims are dealt with as quickly and efficiently as possible. We provide the kind of service that we would expect to receive ourselves.

Some companies lose sight that this is a service industry and try to treat insurance as a "stack it high, sell it cheap" commodity. With that type of business ethic, something has to give and that is invariably the after sales service. We pride ourselves on arranging quality cover at competitive rates, but we won't insult your intelligence by guaranteeing that "we will beat any quote". What we can guarantee is that we will provide you with a first class service.
