Tailored cover for your security business

If you’re a self-employed security guard or you run your own security company, business insurance can give you the back-up you need to do your job with confidence.

Start by considering public liability insurance, which can protect you if a member of the public sues you for injury or damage. You can then add other covers to your security guard insurance policy, including employers’ liability cover if you have any staff and buildings insurance if you have business premises.

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.
