Insignis Cars was originally established in 2007 as a small independent car sourcing business offering vehicle sourcing services to clients looking to buy premium cars. In 2010 Insignis was purchased by Total Automotive Solutions Ltd a vehicle sourcing and fleet re-marketing company with extensive experience in both the corporate and retail markets and quickly Insignis was developed to focus on the left hand drive market focusing on expatriates, second homer owners, military, diplomatic and personal export buyers across Europe and the world.
Over the following years the UK business developed it’s product and services offering supporting clients not just with the supply of tax free or left hand drive vehicles but developing support services in a number of countries with the simple ethos of taking the pain out of car import enhancing the cost savings and reducing the red-tape. Spain had by this time developed as one of the businesses key market places with so many British expatriates and second home owners living there.
By 2014 the business had grown into one of the fastest growing left hand drive suppliers in the UK offering new and used LHD cars as well as comprehensive car sourcing service. Working to develop the business with partners like UK Trade and Investment and the Chamber of Commerce and also develop new schemes for managing import into the UK and other countries.
2016 saw the decision to expand into Spain as one of Insignis’ key market places and develop a presence on the ground there. The philosophy was simple – “take our UK approach to vehicle preparation, quality, pricing and customer service and offer that to clients on the ground in Spain”. Combining Insignis’ interpersonal approach to client relationships and our expertise in vehicle import the idea was to offer an unrivalled service in Spain.
