Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

Last updated: 31st March 2020

Following the Government’s announcement asking everyone to stay at home, we’re making some changes to the way we work to make sure we’re looking after our people and our customers. We’re setting up as many of our colleagues as possible to work from home, but this will take a few days.

In the short-term, we’re only accepting new business online. That means new customers can’t buy insurance over the phone.

Existing customers: Please don’t phone unless it’s absolutely necessary.

We need to prioritise:

  • Customers who have an urgent claim, for example your car is undrivable following an accident, you are injured, or your home is uninhabitable.
  • Customers who can’t pay now as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, call us - we want to help you.

If you have questions about your renewal or want to make a change to your policy, you can use our virtual assistant. If your policy is due to renew in the next week and you haven’t opted for auto-renewal, please call us. If you have opted for auto-renewal, please make sure your insurance still meets your needs.

Consultants Insurance

Whether you consult with clients in their business premises, advise them at your own place or combine both ways of working, you could benefit from a reliable Consultants Insurance policy.

Why do consultants need Public Liability Insurance?

A simple slip or trip on your business premises could lead to a claim for compensation from a customer or other third party. Spilling coffee on an expensive piece of hardware in a customer’s office could lead to a similar outcome. Were you to be found legally liable for injury or property damage following an accident, Churchill’s Public Liability Insurance for Consultants can cover the cost of the claim (subject to the policy limit you choose).

What’s included with our standard policy?

Churchill’s standard Consultants Insurance policy comes with £1m public liability cover as standard. You’ll also have 24/7 access to our free legal helpline and, should you need to make a claim, an individual claims handler will look after your case personally from notification to settlement.

Flexible insurance for self-employed consultants

Everyone’s circumstances are different, so our flexible insurance provides consultants with a range of options to suit your business needs. You can increase your public liability cover to £2m or £5m, or as high as £10m by giving us a call.

If you have employees, you can add employers’ liability cover up to £10m, and opt to insure your equipment or business stock with us. Other options include personal accident cover for named persons, offering you additional piece of mind if your consultancy is a partnership or other collaborative organisation.
