Who is Quote Detective?

The origins of Quote Detective go back over 20 years to when current director of Quote Detective, David Harlow, launched a non-standard motor broker called Insure Your Motor. He and his business partners developed Insure Your Motor which grew into a company with a staff of around 130.

Harlow decided to sell the business in 2012 but kept in touch with fellow directors Craig Dunckley and Gareth Evans. They believed there was a gap in the market to build a bigger, better, and more customer-focused organization. This resulted in the trio setting up Quote Detective.

Based in Pontypool in South Wales, Quote Detective was founded in 2016, and employs over 50 staff. In 2018, Quote Detective was shortlisted as Start-Up broker of the year by Insurance Age Magazine.

Young drivers can find cheap quotes with Quote Detective. By law as a young driver you’ll be required to get a minimum of third party only (TPO) cover on your new car. This ensures that other drivers are protected if an accident occurs.

Whether you opt for third party only, third party fire and theft or a comprehensive car insurance policy, Quote Detective could find you a cheap price.

Convicted drivers insurance provides cover for people with motor and criminal convictions. Once again, Quote Detective uses its cutting-edge technology to find affordable insurance for convicted drivers.

Modified car insurance is designed for people who enjoy customising their cars.  Due to the added risk of modified vehicles, insurance providers tend to penalise people who modify their vehicles by raising their premiums.

This is not always due to increasing the power of the engine, you could be enhancing the look of your car by spending on bodywork and interiors.

People who own modified cars are typically under-served in the motor insurance industry. Quote Detective aims to provide you with cheap modified car insurance quotes, regardless of the quirky modifications you may have added to your vehicle.
