What your Auctioneers Insurance policy includes

Public Liability insurance cover

Public Liability insurance cover provides protection in case someone who works for your business injures or damages a member of the public or their property. If the third party then claims against your business and are awarded damages, your Public Liability insurance would cover the costs including legal fees that may occur in defending a claim.

Professional Indemnity cover

Professional Indemnity insurance, or PI insurance, will protect you and/or your business against any financial or trading loss that may be caused as a result of bad advice or a mistake made in work. Typically these claims can be a result of Negligence, Dishonesty, Defamation, infringement of Intellectual Property Rights and Loss of Data.

Legal Expenses cover

Legal Expenses provides assistance to cover the cost of legal representation or defence costs from you or business making a mistake. The costs of legal representation can not only be expensive, but they can disrupt a business and cause lasting damage if you do not have them covered.

Employers Liability cover

You are required by law to have Employers Liability insurance cover if you have one or more employees. Employers Liability cover comes as standard at £10m and will protect you, as the employer, against claims from your staff should they be hurt when working for you.
