I am currently setting up a new "One off and spring cleaning" company in Essex but I am not sure what level of insurance is required or how much it might cost. I am intending to do mostly domestic homes but maybe also care homes and commercial. Can anyone provide any info or recommend suitable insurers?  
I would be grateful of any little snippet...

Many thanks

I would think public liability insurance for office and domestic cleaning would suffice. You would be insured for a 1000000. We are insured with M M A and it costs us 130 a year, although I'm sure you could get it cheaper.

Have you tried getting a online quote , just type in insurance and you should get quite a few companys then pick one that does online quotes ,  you have to fill in all your details ,I did this with my public liability cover and saved  45 but you have to shop around  Cool
