Just starting up

Posted by Claire_Bennett (Claire_Bennett), 21 September 2003
Would like to start up own domestic cleaning company, just me to start with but would eventually like to employ cleaners to expand business. I've had quotes for Public Liabilty and Employers Liability Ins which are astronomical, not really worth my while taking people on. Does anyone know a way round this (legal of course!). How do agencies like Molly Maid deal with this?

Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated
