How can we help?

Our insurance

From public liability insurance for injury and property damage, to employers’ liability cover for your staff and freelancers, we offer the core covers you need, plus specific options for a range of risks, such as professional indemnity, or protection for your equipment.

Your business

Our cover options are as varied as the businesses on your local high street. That’s what makes life interesting. We insure tradesmen, like builders and plumbers, but also shops, restaurants, niche businesses and professionals, pubs and many more. We can even cover you for e-commerce, with our online retail insurance.

Just for landlords

Landlords need insurance as much as the next business, if not more. Whether it’s your first buy-to-let or a commercial property, tailor our landlord insurance options to get the protection you need. It’s flexible cover, with options for things like buildings, contents and loss of rent.

We asked our customers to tell their stories, and just what ‘tailored insurance’ means to them. Kick off with Rachael’s Kitchen now, and check back soon for the next snippet.
