If you were in Chester city centre on Saturday, you may have been surprised to see the original Batmobile from the 1966 TV series parked on Eastgate Street. Although Batman couldn’t make it in person, A-Plan insurance were there celebrating the launch of their new Chester branch which opened last week on Frodsham Street.
The car was hugely popular with the passing shoppers and tourists, young and old, stopping to take photographs. A-Plan were also joined by town crier Peter Taunton who did a fabulous job letting the people of Chester know about A-Plan in his time-honoured way.
The opening of the Chester branch brings to four the total number of new branches launched in 2015 alone and the third now located in the North-West. A-Plan believes that the way they are able to offer insurance – establishing exactly what the client needs in a personal and friendly way, while also saving them money – has directly contributed to this successful period of growth.
Offering Chester residents and businesses a more personalised way of arranging home, motor, travel or business insurance as an alternative to online insurance sites, A-Plan does all the hard work to find the right cover to suit clients’ individual circumstances. Insurance cover can be arranged by phone, email or by popping into the branch. Refreshingly, A-Plan does not have call centres or call queuing systems.
Simon Forrow, the new branch manager, has recently relocated from A-Plan’s Wilmslow branch and is extremely excited to bring his team’s expertise to Chester. “Saturday was a great day, with the people of Chester really enjoying the Batmobile and talking to the A-Plan team about what we can do for them. Our branch is now fully open and we’re ready to provide our clients a personalised service to get them the protection they need. We look forward to helping local residents and businesses find great savings on their insurance.”
