Alex Watts : Could you explain the situation a little more?
Customer:

Hi Alex, I was the MD of a Ltd company until June 2013 when it went into liquidation. I the started a business working from a service van which I had registered in May 2013, In September 2013 I was offered a workshop which I now rent, at the beginning of march 2014 I was asked to take on a contract to build a custom van, the van is worth £45,000 when converted and do not want to take the risk of any mishaps

Alex Watts : Are you struggling with public liability or employer please?
Customer:

I have no employees at the moment

Customer:

Hi is there anyone there

Alex Watts :

Sorry I was in Court.

Alex Watts :

Sadly all you can do is go through a broker to get insurance

Alex Watts :

There are companies that deal with specialist matters like yours

Alex Watts :

I guess the risk is that your old company went into liquidation and insurers see you as a greater risk

Alex Watts :

You should try brokers like:
