Can anybody recommend an insurance company / broker?

My insurance is due for renewal, and this year I've finally decided to look at some alternative quotes. The problem that I am finding is that, when you mention you work on petrochemical sites, companies don't want to offer a quote.

There are plenty of companies who do work on such sites, so somebody must insure them.

Kingsbridge are highlighted on the IET website, but they appear to be completely useless. The only restriction on work location listed is offshore but, to be completely certain, in emails clarifying points, three times I asked if I was correct in assuming that petrochemical sites are OK. In all three cases they ignored that query.

Another query was regarding the definition of manual work. Apparently, I can test and inspect but not repair. So, if during testing, I find a wrong connection, which would take a couple of minutes to repair, I have to say to the client "sorry guv, can't do that. Not my job".

For information, I carry out commissioning and maintenance on protection relays. I'm looking for public liability and tool insurance.

Regards,

Martin

I should have said you'll find the tool insurance difficult or at least expensive. I gave up with my expensive test set and just don't let it out of my sight... you can image an insurance co reaction to "well its either in the boot of my car or on a site...." it keeps me company in a hotel room or at home

Insurance is no doubt necessary for any kind of business and people love to enjoy insurance policy regarding business needs and companies enjoy to provide insurance quotes according to the requirement, website like tradecoverwa.com is good idea to get various insurance quotes for any kind of business because for any business lifestyle future protection is necessary, like mainly people enjoy umbrella insurance along with income protection towards their company.
