The Insurance Line has appointed Simba Security on a solus basis to supply and fit alarms, locks and satellite tracking and recovery systems for customers' vehicles.

Andrew Dunley, sales director of Simba, said: “This is one of a number of announcements relating to the insurance industry that we plan to make in the near future.”

He added that Simba's 40 years' experience in the vehicle security business was one of the factors in Insurance Line's decision.
