  • Public Liability Insurance for Craft shops?

    Hello everyone! I'm a newcomer to the forum and have read some of the threads already, great to see such an active community.

    My wife and I will hopefully open a craft shop soon and I need to get public liability insurance - can anyone recommend or know of such providers who will cover commercial premises?

    Unfortunately Ian W Wallace does not provide cover for shops/commercial premises.

    Any help direction will be appreciated

    I had my shop insurance with this company

    If I remember rightly I got a few quotes at the time and they came out the cheapest for the cover I wanted. If you're a member of the FSB (which I think you'd be daft not to be if you're opening a shop) then you can get discounts on their preferred insurance companies - however I still found Premierline was cheaper for my shop.

      Good to see you made it here. Can't offer advice but good luck with your search.
      God helps them that help themselves.

        I keep having to shop around every year for this. My renewal is next week and it has gone up by £200!! I tend to use brokers such as Towergate or Sharrocks but also used premierlinedirect, however, I got the best quote so far from the Co-operative this time! If you have employees, employee liability insurance is compulsory too.
