InsureMy Business

Can I get instant cover for my business?

Cover is effective immediately from the date selected, subject to accurate information being supplied during the quote. If you have any questions or want to check the progress of a policy please call us on 01608 647846.

My non-standard business is not on your quotation system. What should I do?

There are a number of types of commercial business that we are unable to put on our quotation system, usually because of the type of information required or because they need to be individually underwritten. Quotation request forms are on the system for businesses which come up as 'refer trades' or fall outside the normal scope of cover. Most quotations take 48 hours but more complicated risks might take longer.

What types of payment are accepted?

We can accept payment for the full amount by credit or debit card. Payment can be spread over a year by direct debit as long as the premium exceeds £100.

Credit card: there is no extra charge made for credit cards

Debit card: there is no extra charge made for debit cards.

Direct debit: a deposit is required to cover the first few months of cover then the remainder is spread over ten monthly payments. Interest charges are added to the price.


How long will you hold a quote for?

We will hold a quote and keep the rate for 30 days after you have taken a quote online. After this 30 day period you will have to go through the quote process again.

When will I be charged for my policy?

If you pay by credit or debit card you will be charged at the time you submit your policy.

How do I make a claim?

In the event you need to make a claim telephone the insurer as soon as you can. The claim line telephone number is printed on your certificate of insurance. If you don't have that to hand you can always go to My Account, from there you can download a new set of documents. Alternatively just give us a call on 01608 647846 and we'll help get the claim registered for you.


My name has changed do I need to tell you?

As soon as you can, you should let us know so that we can amend your policy documents and send you a new certificate of insurance.

My contact details have changed do I need to tell you?

Yes please it's important that we have up to date contact details on file, both in case you have to make a claim and to make sure we can send you your renewal documents when the time comes. Especially important is that you let us know your current email address.

I've lost my documents, what do I do?

Don't worry if you lose your policy documents. Your insurance policy is available online in My Account, so you can always print out another copy if you need to do so. Any problems just give us a call on 01608 647846.


How can I be sure your site is secure?

Our sites are protected by SSL encryption. This applies when you go in to one of our quotes systems where confidential personal data is stored.
