i am currentley studying for a B-tec national level 3 in business studies and in the unit i am currentley planning out a business and i have chosen to start up a climbing centre. i could really do with some help relating to the insurance needed to cover the centre ( both limited liabillity and equipment insurance)if anybody could hellp out and give me some figures id be really thankful as no insurance companies will give me a quote due to m not owning a property or having a yet valid business plan. i dont need exact figures so any input would be valued! cheers, mike c

For a medium sized new centre your looking at around 700 - 800

In reply to Damonclark: well that's cheap! I'd love to know which broker you use. How do you define medium size?

In reply to mike_clayton: As I have seen you work at a climbing wall in the north west, that might be the best place to start....

Employers Liability
Public Liability
Buildings and contents cover,
Business interruption.
Professional indemnity if you give advice.

Premium can be linked to visitors numbers so you may pay a bit extra at the end of the year if visitor numbers are much greater than you predicted.

Might be worth contacting a centre that's recently opened - I know of 3 bouldering walls round here - Climbing Station in Loughborough, Depot in Nottingham and Boulder Central in Birmingham. They might be prepared to help. Is it a bouldering wall you're planning on opening or a lead wall? I assume it would make a big difference in terms of insurance.

In reply to Ava Adore: 700 or 800? What is that figure for as I cannot believe you get any decent level of PLI for that little fee for anything bigger than a cupboard!

...and I think we all know, in reality, it'll be considerably more than that per annum!
