    Renewed mine with my van insurers CVD. Chances are if a claim is due, they will look for a way out.
    In the past five years, I used Small Business Insurance but it seems their prices went up every year?
    With CVD, their prices are reduced yearly for the last two years I have used them. I am suspicious.

    I was with corgi last yr but got a price form Wayne at insure my liability £265 (Chaucer insurance) 2 million, they will base your insurance on your turnover .I looked at the small print all OK only a £250 excess so not bad some are £2500 when you check the policy docs. Corgi were the next best at £363,34 but I did not want the tool cover ect plus a larger excess.

    you only find out how good an insurance company is when you need them to pay up! was insured with gladiator for my van and tools. Van got stolen with all my tools and was not recovered, they were utter carp totally useless and took over 6 weeks to get any money from them and had to jump through hoops to get it. avoid them at all costs.

    Yep agree but they do give you pages and pages of stuff that while it makes sense it's also got gobble-de-gook feeling and i find it hard to understand what it actually means for me... don't u think? Trying to find the right policy at the right price with the right company is well... hard?

    I've been though the broker Business Octopus for the last few years and will stick with them.

    ALways check the small print.

    Eg we are insured to work in buildings up to 4 storeys (max)
    were offered insurance that covered work in buildings up to 10 metres high - but this would exclude a 4 storey building we regularly work in.

    I have the irritating job of sorting out liability insurance and van insurance this week, so far the most competitive seem to be Tradesman saver for liability, £411 for £2m and tool cover, found them recommended on another thread, rang a few others but none come close to that so far, so may just stick with them. My existing insurer (Natwest) are working out cheaper for the liabilty aspect at £309, but once you pop tools on it almost doubles! Just so time consuming, and like Ted I worry about the small print.
