does anyone know any insurance brooker who will do public liability insurance for fire poi if so how much do they charge?

Firstly you need to remember that the search button at the top of the page is your friend and can answer almost all the questions you can come up with about fire spinning (trust me most of them have been asked before).

Secondly [Old link] is such a case on the question you have just asked. Scroll down to UCoFs post and you will see the answers you need.

Duck for Cover
Dixon Chalmers/County Mutual/Towergate Risk Solutions/whatever they're called this week
Equity (dahling)
Park Insurance
World Clown Association
The Insurance Experts
Robertson Taylor
Torribles
Arthur Doodsons
Eagle Star

Now you can see I've done the search, any chance of some quick yes/no/maybe reviews?

I'm quite happy to post up to date information once I've called them all up myself but, as all the old links seem to be broken since the site switch, I'd prefer to make and maintain a new thread for the UK.

Relevance to Poms? You could join as a Pom living in Oz, and it covers working overseas (apart from US/Canada), but you have to live in Australia to join. Closest name I could see in a UK search was blokes clothing called duck AND cover.

Also Skully, the link on your post to an answer doesn't work.. goes back to the forums 'title page'.

I reckon consolidating up to date info on PLI into one sticky thread could be a good idea

Last I heard it was Towergate Risk solutions, but that was back in march

Towergate Risk Solutions is the one I've always used... having read through some others they are a little more expensive at 165 / year but have lower excess, cover workshops (if you specify them) and are international (barring USA!).

You can get the price down to about 130 through other insurers but then loose some of the cover.

They are rubbish at writing things down though, even after being with them for over 5 years I have to send my documents back with corrections every time I renew them.

Has anyone else got a different favourite?
