What is insurance for consultants?
Spilling coffee on an expensive piece of hardware in a customer’s office while you're out and about on business could lead to a claim for compensation.
If you’re found legally liable for injury or property damage following an accident, Churchill’s Public Liability Insurance for consultants can cover the cost of the claim (subject to the policy limit you choose).
Churchill’s standard Consultants Insurance policy comes with £1 million public liability cover as standard.
You’ll also have 24/7 access to our legal helpline and, if you need to make a claim, an individual claims handler will look after your case personally from notification to settlement.
With Churchill’s flexible insurance you get reliable, cost‐effective cover for all aspects of your business.
We can tailor our cover to suit your needs and offer you insurance that’s there when you need it.
What insurance do we have for consultants?
Public Liability Insurance
Public Liability Insurance isn’t legally compulsory for consultants but most people in customer-facing industries think it’s essential.
As well as giving you peace of mind and security for your business, it also helps you present a professional image.
Having Public Liability Insurance means you’re protected if you or an employee accidentally injures a customer or damages their property.
Our Public Liability Insurance offers you up to £1 million of cover as standard, with the option of increasing it to up to £10 million.
Tools and business equipment cover
Consultants often have specialist equipment to help with the services they provide to their clients.
You can cover your valuable business equipment for up to £10,000 as an optional extra for added peace of mind.
Our cover includes mobile phones and laptops.
