Welcome to NFU Mutual's Larne branch. Although our grassroot customers are from the farming community we now cater for a wide range of insurance needs from individual homes and cars to tradesman, retailers, caterers, commercial property and motor fleet policies.

We are committed to providing a first class local service. Our friendly and dedicated team are ready to help with any query you may have. Why not call us or drop into our branch and we will be delighted to discuss your insurance requirements.
