  Can anyone recomend a good Insurance company or broker for my Carpet and Upholstery cleaning business as when I have rung round I seemed to get the runaround. If you could also give me some idea of what you pay.

Try McGreggors in Birmingham

First years Liability insurance for me only inc risk insurance for up to 5k cost me 260 for the year.I had to show proof of training courses attended on carpet and upholstery cleaning.

You can get just Liability for about 80

Hi Dave

McGreggor's in Birmingham offer a good package if you're doing just residential work. I think their Liability package is for about 1m public and 5k treatment. Remember, a medium priced suite can cost over 5k. Also remember that if anybody helps you on a casual or part time basis, even for just 1 minute a year, you are obliged to have employers liability too. Make sure you are covered for casual and part time workers in all categories. If your needs are outside the scope of the McGreggor package, try HSBC Bank. I got 2m Public and Treatment plus 10m Employers for 468. The Industries big players don't seem interested in us small businesses. Minimum premium is often in excess of 800.
Safe and happy cleaningSmiley
