Advice on Insurance Self Employed

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. 


I know these topics have been done in much detail and i've read through alot of them, but just after a little advice. 


Long story short, just terminated my contract with employer, and going self employed. Will be doing the same work, just not under their employment. 


Jobs I did under employment and will contiune to do working for myself would be woodland coppicing, tree felling, woodland path maintenance (strimming back and hedge cutting), and meadow mowing. 


What insurance would I need? I had a look at Arborisk, but got a little confused in terms of there "main activity performed by the proprietor" part. Would my work be classed as forestry, or groundwork?  


Any advice will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I think the best thing to do is to phone them up and talk. They are humans and actually reasonable ones too haha.you tell them what you're going to be doing and they tell you what you need. I was in a similar state of confusion recently. I'm pleased with the service from Arborisk.

(Wonder if I get commission?)
