Our Credentials (Why Wilby)

Industry Experience

Established in 1984 we have over 30 years of broking experience meaning we can find the right solution to match your needs. Wilby Ltd has the knowledge, experience and skills required to tailor insurance programmes that respond to the risk exposures of your sector, acting for many recognised businesses in the UK. 

Our service is based on the key principle of professional people delivering innovative bespoke solutions for our clients. We place these values at the heart of everything we do. We understand the community plays a huge part in our success, that’s why we are committed to giving back.


Professional excellence underlines everything we do. We always look to give clients the best advice and we don't cut corners simply to win business. Our commitment to professionalism is underlined by our Chartered Insurance Broker status and our success in numerous awards and our most recent win at the British Insurance Awards 2015 where we won 2 awards for our commercial lines broking initiative and regional broker of the year.


Every Employee Counts, Every Client Counts

Every business says that their staff are their greatest asset but at Wilby, we really believe it. That’s why we constantly invest in all types of learning and development and regularly promote people from within so that our staff are knowledgeable and engaged, therefore able to provide our customers with exceptional levels of service.  We were the first Insurance Broker in Yorkshire to gain Investors in People status in 1997 and this has remained a priority for us, successfully retaining this at every reassessment since and gaining glowing feedback.

Creating better, more efficient services

We understand that, to succeed we need to innovate continuously.  We have a track record for developing unique solutions for clients which fill a gap in the market including two award winning initiatives in Bike Dealer (insurance for Motorcycle Dealers) and Dealer Guard (insurance for caravan & motorhome dealers) as well as non-insurance based initiatives such as a Loss Adjuster service and Risk Management consultancy.

Every Client is Unique

We are not under the illusion that any two businesses are the same, that’s why we’re committed to remaining independent which enables us to search the market to find the right solution for our clients’ insurance needs. 

Giving Back
Community Focused & Charitable

We’re proud of our Yorkshire roots, having being formed in Calderdale since 1984 we have built strong links with the local community as well as national charities. We are really proud to support a number of local charities, sports teams and other worthy causes.
