Who is Devitt?

Devitt is a specialist motorbike insurance broker. It uses a panel of leading UK underwriters and insurers to help you find the right insurance for your motorbike. They're certainly not a newcomer to motorcycle insurance, in fact it has been specialist in this field for close on 90 years.

It all began in 1936 when Howson Foulger Devitt started an innovative scheme insuring motorcycles through motorcycle dealers. This meant that riders could buy their motorbike and ride it away, fully covered the same day.

Howson started his career in insurance at Lloyd’s in London, however insurance was in the blood of the Devitt family. In 1836, Devitt & Moore was set up as a shipping insurance broker – the company was jointly owned by Howson’s grandfather, Thomas Henry Devitt.

A lot has changed since Devitt Jr began insuring motorbikes in the 1930s, and the company has been bought and sold numerous times. They have been owned by household names such as Churchill and The Royal Bank of Scotland but are now the largest privately-owned motorbike insurance specialist in the UK.

Devitt’s 130-strong team is based mainly at the company’s Romford office in East London and looks after the insurance interests of over 120,000 customers.

Devitt has for many years arranged the official BMW Motorrad Insurance scheme and has not been shy to come forward as a racing motorbike sponsor at various times.

The Crooks Suzuki bike ridden by the legendary Barry Sheene had the Devitt Insurance logo emblazoned on each side and more recently, Devitt enjoyed TT winning success as the sponsor of Ivan Lintin, three-time winner of the Lightweight TT.

Devitt motorbike insurance policy details

The three different levels of cover Devitt insurance offer are:

Comprehensive insurance covers anything from damage to someone else’s property or vehicle, to damage to your motorbike or property caused by an accident, theft or fire.

Third party, fire and theft covers damage to others’ property or vehicle, plus your motorbike in the event of a fire or theft. In the event of an accident that isn’t your fault, you may be able to claim through the insurance of the other individual involved.

Third-party only cover (TPO) is the minimum insurance requirement for motorcycles in the UK, and it provides the minimum level of cover. Third-party only insurance only covers damage to others’ property or vehicle. You and your motorbike won’t be covered in the event of any accident or incident, unless you’re involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, in which case you may be able to claim through the insurance of the other person involved.
