A CHELMSFORD-based high street insurance broker is offering a free “sense check” service for any resident purchasing an insurance product online.

A-Plan, based in Duke Street, is making the offer after a report by the Financial Conduct Authority found that some comparison sites did not offer clear information on the level of cover or excess and are failing to meet the authority’s expectations.

Ben Hatt, branch manager of A-Plan, said: “If residents are searching for a new policy, whether that’s for home, car, van or work, they can contact us to arrange a ‘sense check service’ to look at the insurance cover they are considering on 01245 673300.”
