The history of Mark Bates Ltd

Mark Bates Ltd is proud to be a family run business and has been providing specialist insurance and warranty policies for over 21 years. The firm was launched by Mark Bates in July 1994 with a vision to be the best provider of insurance for the disable and over 50s.

Our award winning organisation has built its foundation on looking after our customers and providing unparalleled levels of service. When we started it was a team of 2 handling all enquiries, administration and claims but since then our workforce has grown to a team of over 60 (if you're interested in a career with Mark Bates Ltd head over to our Careers Page).

We have designed our Premier Care range of policies to provide the most comprehensive cover available, giving you total peace of mind.

About our Managing Director

Mark began providing the Premier Care range because he saw a need to create far better levels of service, focusing on a sector of society where it is most needed, specifically the over 50s and disabled people. Ever the perfectionist Mark is always striving to ensure our 5 star customer service never falters.

“I know from first hand experience how vital help is when your health fails and how important it is to protect yourself from personal injury claims, particularly in today's compensation culture. This is my driving force and why I am so passionate about continuing to provide the very best insurance facilities for people with such specific requirements.”

The next steps for the organisation

What makes us unique is dedication and consideration! We are a long established family run business with strong values and a caring team, most of which have worked with us for over 10 years. This means there is a real sense of ownership within the business which translates into a very professional and patient attitude towards our customers.

We continue to work closely with mobility retailers, healthcare professionals and most importantly our customers and we are always looking to develop our product range to meet the specific needs of disabled people and those over the age of 50.
