about API

Our service and advice is just the beginning …

When it comes to insurance, we understand that you simply want to talk with someone direct about protecting you, your family and your assets.

At API Insurance Services there are no automated telephone options to navigate, no queues, no wrong departments – just call us and connect directly to one of our helpful and experienced consultants. You can even ask for them by name – and enjoy a coffee with them if you care to visit.

For the right insurance at the right price, you need the right advice, so our knowledge and experience are a great start. Our helpful consultants will also take the time to listen to your particular needs because we value your business – and look forward to talking to you again and again. We like to think we can make insurance an enjoyable experience – even when it comes to a claim!

API Insurance Services was established over 33 years ago and is still going strong. Why not experience our old-fashioned values by calling us for a chat about your particular insurance needs for your home, car, business and other treasured possessions. If we cannot offer you a suitable insurance solution, we will even suggest a competitor!
