window cleaning insurance
Posted by squeaky_klean (squeaky_klean), 9 January 2004I've been window cleaning for 7 years now and have had no problems getting insurance. However recently I've become Ltd and have found it to be very difficult to get insurance. I'm told that i need it by law. Does anyone konw where to get employers insurance from and do i really need it?
Posted by STEVE71163 (Steve Lowe), 9 January 2004I would give the NFMWGC a ring because they have companys that can give employer liability. Their number is 0161-432-8754
Hope this helps!

If you employ anyone then by law you must have employers liabiliy ( Bloody expensive it is too ) If you are on your own then Public Liability is all you need ( Not sure whether that is by law ) but it makes sense to have it.
Posted by STEVE71163 (Steve Lowe), 9 January 2004I may be wrong but i think if you are a limited company you would need employer liability anyway because you are an employee of the business
Posted by squeaky_klean (squeaky_klean), 10 January 2004Yes I spoke to the insurers and they said as a company even if you dont employ anyone you are in effect employing yourself so you have to have it. Eagle star said £650.
Beginning to think I made a mistake becoming ltd.
