Elephant Insurance, or Elephant.co.uk, specializes in automobile insurance. New to and thus far relatively little known in the United States, the company was actually founded in August, 2000 in Wales. Elephant’s parent company is the Admiral Group, plc, which is currently the third largest automobile insurer in the United Kingdom. Entering the U.S. market in 2009 by setting up offices in Richmond, Virginia, Elephant currently provides automobile policies to customers in Illinois, Maryland, Virginia and Texas.
The Admiral Group, plc was the United Kingdom’s first completely online automobile insurance provider. In the US, Elephant serves customers over the internet and also via the phone at 1-877-21-TRUNK (1-877-218-7865).
Elephant Insurance has already been named as one of the 2011 Best Places to Work in Virginia per the Virginia Business and Best Company’s Group.
The company mascot, featured in the company logo, is Trunkie, an animated elephant voiced by Nick Frost (star of the movie, Shaun of the Dead).
Appropriately, Elephant.co.uk supports Tusk Trust, a UK based African wildlife charity helping fund such projects as the Namunyak Wildlife Conservation Project in Kenya and the Mkomazi Reserve in Tanzania. The company also works with the Born Free Foundation, an international wildlife charity that works to reduce animal suffering and encourage all people to treat animals with respect.
This company appears well prepared for future growth and an increased insurance market share. It is relatively new to the U.S. and is already growing rapidly. Whether you are an investor, or shopping around for an automobile insurance policy, this seems to be a company to keep your eye on. Before you make a final decision about which company to purchase a policy from, consider getting a quote from this one also. It is free to obtain an automobile insurance quote, whether online by telephone, and you might be pleasantly surprised.
