If you are a self employed plasterer with 4+ years experience and want £1,000,000 public liability cover, you can expect to pay between £54 and £72 a year with us depending on a few other factors.

Feel free to give us a try. Our prices are still as per the opening post. We keep it simple and are also here on the forum to answer questions. You can get a quote at www.ashburnham-insurance.co.uk/business-insurance/public-liability-insurance/plasterer/ or give us a call for free on 08001696137 and we will be pleased to help.

We have an article about subcontractors on our website that might help. Basically if you provide your own tools/materials and work under your own direction, you are a bona-fide subcontractor and should still have your own insurance. If you are instead employed for labour purposes and tools/materials are not yours then you won't need your own insurance but your employer should provide public and employers liability for you.

I'm looking at getting insured as a sole proprietor electrical contractor, and insurance shopping is turning into a pain in the arse.

All of the responses I'm getting from insurers places exclusions on nearly all of the work I'm wanting to target.

Aside from being a licensed electrician, I'm also a licensed engineer. I want to be able to go after field engineering/commissioning work.

Troubleshooting and startup of large, industrial machinery, breakers, switchgear, generators, transfer switches, transformers, indoor and outdoor. Low voltage (120-480) and high voltage (480 to transmission level).

I also want the ability to do small stuff when the mood strikes. Swap out receptacles in a house, add a circuit, replace a panel, etc.

I didn't realize finding insurance to cover a broad range of electrical work was such a tall order. It isn't necessarily price. I keep getting "deer in the headlights" looks when I tell insurers what I'm looking to do.

For those of you who do a broad range of things, what insurance carrier(s) are you using? I've got to be looking in all the wrong places for insurance.

Sorry guys, appears I've missed a few of your questions. Notifications were not coming through from this thread so I've failed to answer some of you.

If you still need me then fire your questions below and I'll try and keep a closer eye on things!
