We want to help protect your business and help you succeed by offering quality Public Liability policies at great prices and all with an easy buying experience, whether this is online, or via our telephone service.

We aim to make getting insurance as easy as possible by offering great service and support, when getting a Public Liability insurance quote, buying your tradesmans' insurance policy, and throughout your cover. We’re proud that over 40,000 customers have chosen Trade Direct for their tradesmans’ insurance, and continually strive to maintain the high standards of service which we feel they deserve. In fact, we’re so confident of our service, that we ask every new customer to review and rate their experience of dealing with us.
