Whether you’re looking for fixed-location or mobile car valeting insurance, it’s crucial to secure an appropriate level of cover for the services you offer. Along with protecting yourself from the risks faced by all self-employed traders across the UK, you’ll need to consider:

  • The additional risks if you ever have a customer’s vehicle overnight.
  • The possibility of an accident involving a member of the public where you’re working.
  • The value of goods, plant, machinery, stock and portable hand tools you keep in your premises or van.
