Nimmos Insurance Brokers was established in Clacton in 1947 by the late Captain John Nimmo and moved to the Pallister Road  in the 1950’s, since then we have provided an insurance broking service to the local community, maintaining a customer focus in a forward thinking and flexible manner. In July 2014 we moved to Station Road in Clacton to be amongst other established businesses.

Our new office- 82 Station Road.


We are a family run independent insurance brokerage who have been providing competitively priced, quality insurance products for both commercial and personal clients throughout the United Kingdom since 1947. Keith Knott, Managing Director, started as a junior clerk on leaving school in 1960 and is actively involved in the day-to-day running of the Office thus giving a high level of personal service and sound independent advice.

David Knott, Director, has worked within the insurance industry since 1990 initially with a leading general insurer and since 1997 at Nimmos of Clacton Limited.

Our other members of staff have collectively over 100 years of experience in the insurance profession.

Our aim is to provide you with a suitable and acceptable insurance product at a competitive price and to provide you with a constantly reliable and local service, with this in mind in July 2006 we became the first of several brokers in Essex to join Compass Westinsure. This expanding group now controls in excess of £300m in insurance premiums with 175 independent local brokers throughout the United Kingdom.

Compass Westinsure membership enables us to maintain our local identity whilst benefiting from collective resources of Compass Westinsure and ensures that we can deliver market leading products to you at very competitive costs. We offer a wide range of Personal and Commercial insurance products and have access to all of the leading Insurers in the market.

In addition to Compass Westinsure, we are members of the British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA), which is the UK’s leading general insurance intermediary organisation representing the interests of insurance brokers, intermediaries and their customers.
