All the policies we arrange are tailored to your unique requirements. We can assist start-ups, sole traders, or large companies. We have a range of specialist insurers and strong relationships, so we are confident we can arrange the perfect policy for you.

Protect Your Business

As a business owner, or technician, you are exposed to potential legal action being taken against you in respect to personal injury or property damage. These claims can be incredibly high and without the right insurance can leave you in deep trouble. It is important to note that even an allegation can incur significant costs to defend.

It is vital to realise that Insurance isn’t just about price. We want to make sure that if an insurance claim arises you are fully protected. When a claim happens, it is often a distressing experience, but we guarantee we will work with you to achieve a fair, favourable claim resolution whilst minimising disputes. Throughout the process you will have our direct phone numbers, email addresses, and mobile numbers.

The cost of work at height insurance

This is all based on your perceived risk level. Each business is treated individually and assessed on their own merit. Therefore, it is vital that we understand your business and your safety procedures, so that we can portray your business correctly to the insurers. If there have been any claims, then we need to discuss what has been implemented to improve risk management. As you can imagine higher risk locations often mean a higher premium, more employees equals a higher premium, a poor claims history will mean a higher premium.

Our advice on what liability limit to select

Unfortunately this is where you need to consider worst case scenarios. When selecting your indemnity limit you need to ponder what the maximum pay out may be following a major incident. With liability claims these can range from a few thousand to millions. Common Public Liability (PL) coverage ranges from £1m to £10m, but we have also had requests up to £20m, on an any one claim basis. Also, often there are contractual requirements from the principal contractor, so it is important to check these. For Employers Liability (EL) the majority of insurers offer £10m as standard but again it is possible to increase this.

Additional cover we recommend

We can include additional cover for your business, whether that is tools and plant, business equipment, laptops and portable electronics, personal accident cover, legal expenses and excess reimbursement protection.

Our Clients Rate Us

Over the Moon

I was referred to Edison Ives by the British Insurance Brokers Association and Tony was able to find an insurer that reduced my landlord cover from over £1300 to £495. I was over the moon and Tony made it all easy and straightforward. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

Marcus Whawell Landlord
Right to Manage Insurance

As leaseholders we took the rights to manage our own flats. Not knowing anything about what needs to be done, Edison Ives (Tony) was of very good advice and guidance in taking out a building insurance for our flats. Clearly the personalised and trustworthy approach made us decide to work with them (as well as the money they made us save). I would highly recommend them to anyone taking on their rights to manage! Thanks.

I had a lot of problems trying to insure my rental new build flat, these guys were very courteous and solved the problem for me at a good price.

Sam W Property Owner
Absolutely Five Star!

I found Edison Ives while searching for home insurance which would provide cover for a house which shares the property with a home-based boarding kennel business. Tony was able to find me a very competitive package, and walked me through the whole process step by step. Tony could not have done more to help me, and for a new-start business his help and advice was invaluable. Absolutely Five Star!

Customer service exceptional. Thanks to Edison Ives we got a competitive price for our block of flats insurance. Following that we had a claim and Ged helped us with this from start to finish. I would highly recommend.

Bridget McKinnon Property Owner
Really very helpful

Really very helpful. After having a claim in 2016, our premiums were extremely high. Edison Ives have found us a higher policy at a cheaper rate that our previous insurers.

Who knew insurance could be fun?!

Ged gave me comprehensive advice in simple English and I now feel reassured that I have the right cover at the right price. He understands me and my business and is a joy to deal with. Who knew insurance could be fun?!

Ellan Campbell-Swann Owner - PR and Events Agency
Easy to deal with and professional

Very easy to deal with and very professional. So much better than dealing with the massive impersonal call centres, and Edison Ives still came back with a better premium. As with all insurance, it's not the buying but the claims process that's important. I get the feeling that should a claim be necessary they will do everything possible to support.

T.J. Property Owner - Residents Association Chair

Made it simple

I find insurance documents long, complex and full of jargon. Thankfully Edison Ives' picked out the key points and communicated them clearly.

Amarjit Builders merchants
Thanks

I had been with my broker for a number of years and I never realised I was paying more than I needed to. Edison Ives went through my existing policy, highlighted that I was under insured, and then they managed to source a new package that provided a lot more cover at a similar price.
