About the employer

Lexham Insurance Consultants Ltd is a specialist insurance broker offering in excess of twenty different insurance products including exclusive schemes for Moped, Scooter, and Motorcycle Insurance as well as bespoke products in both the Motor Trade and Commercial Market.

Known for our close working relationships with some of the biggest names in the industry, Lexham works directly with a panel of Insurers so we can compare insurance quotes and provide customers with the best rates.

We pride ourselves on being able to go the extra mile to offer in many cases fully bespoke insurance policies. This means with our tailored approach we can offer excellent rates on more niche markets which can normally be difficult to insure, such as electric mopeds, scooters and motorcycles, imports, custom and modified classics as well as three-wheel machines such as Piaggio MP3, Peugeot Metropolis and Yamaha Tricity. We offer cover in areas where many other companies don’t like young riders, new riders, inner cities and delivery riders.

We are a very 'hands-on' company' and you will find us at many events across the country including dealer open days, scooter rallies, and motorcycle events and shows. Throughout the year we also support and sponsor many UK-based clubs, events, and organisations.
