Insurance for crafters and craft stalls

Whether you’re selling at craft fairs or at market stalls, getting the right insurance cover is crucial.

Public liability insurance is a key cover for craft businesses, as it covers you against claims made by a member of the public for injury or damage caused by your business. For instance if someone was badly injured when they tripped over stock beside your craft stall, they could make a compensation claim against you.

Product liability insurance can also be really important for crafters, as it covers you against compensation claims made for injury or damage that’s caused by one of your products. Even if you haven’t made the product yourself, in some situations you may still be liable for compensation claims.

Build a tailored crafters insurance policy with these core covers, and opt to add additional protection like stock insurance if you need it.

Cover from £6.81 a month, get insured in minutes. (10% of direct debit customers repay their annual policy in 10 monthly payments of £6.81 or less across all our trades insured. Based on data from 1 July - 31 December 2019, for comparison only. Cancellation charges may apply, please refer to our full terms & conditions.)

It is a very good and easy to use service. I've been a customer for several years and the renewal system is very straight forward. I've always found the quotes competitive too. I'd definitely recommend Simply Business.
