Policies designed for individuals and small businesses

Our Public Liability product is designed to be flexible, meeting differing needs from sole traders to businesses with turnover up to £3M and up to 15 employees. We offer 3 products, designed to reflect different business needs:

Essentials is a self employed dry-lining contractors Public Liability policy which provides you with cover with limits of £1M, £2M and £5M. If you have up to 15 employees or labour only sub-contractors, £10M of Employers’ Liability cover is included with all our Public Liability policies. In addition to this, we offer a range of optional extensions including Hired-In plant, Owned plant, Contract Works and Jury Service (applicable to the policyholder only).

If you want broader cover, Classic extends Essentials by including £1,000 of Tools cover for the policyholder. This cover is effective 24 hours a day, anywhere in the UK, and includes overnight thefts from your van - following a violent and forcible break in to your locked vehicle. If necessary, cover can be extended up to £15,000. Classic also includes £100,000 of Professional Indemnity insurance.
