Hi guys

So my public liability insurance is due for renewal and following in from this conversation a year ago I have had to renew my policy at £700 from the people I found at the start of this thread!

Intasure told me they no longer cover anything to do with soft play and also told me if a tower was to fall on a child then they would not defend me against a claim made against me!

Clear insurance told me they no longer cover vending policies

Double check your policies guys to make sure you are covered! Looks like we have to pay a massive premium for the industry we are in :-(

I don’t know what to do then! Do you think they are lying to me when they say they don’t cover anything to do with soft play?

I am with Clear Insurance. Renewed 4 months ago.

Did they tell they were closed to new clients or pulling out of the vending market completely.

Best Regards

Clear insurance are no longer covering this industry. I am on the look out to get my new policy set up asap as my policy with clear expires on 22nd September. Any help much appreciated.

Hi Ade,

Having been using CLEAR Insurance for my Liability Insurance for the last couple of years alas, they have stopped providing cover now for Towers etc.

Do you use Insta for your towers as well?

Kind regards
