Just about start working as a carpenter (ahem – for the south west region….;)) and want to know a reliable source for public liability insurance. Any other advice on legal requirements for this type of business?
Its certainly worth having a good shop around and see what you can get thrown in with it – I’m with Norwich Union, through a third party broker (B&Q – although they’ve stopped doing insurance now) and get tool / plant cover thrown in with it, which is better value than trying to insure my kit on its own. Have a look if there are any relevant trade bodies too, sometime you can get pub lib insurance as a perk of membership.
