We recently shared a blog on the top reasons to hold a policy with Kingsbridge. We understand how important it is for you, as a limited company contractor, to get an insurance policy that fits the bill. Competitively priced. Comprehensive cover. Outstanding customer service. And the option of extra cover, so that you can get everything you need, all in one place.

But as a limited company contractor running your own business, there are probably other things you care about as well. Backing a smaller company. A company with a small team who will remember you. A business with flexible options to suit your needs. And the option to earn vouchers for spreading the word.

Who we are

Kingsbridge Risk Solutions Ltd was founded as a commercial insurance broker back in 2001. Kingsbridge Contractor Insurance was formed in 2007 to provide comprehensive insurance for contractors, with our main insurance package underwritten by Zurich Insurance PLC.

Friendly sales team

When you call Kingsbridge, you aren’t calling through to a big call centre with branches all over the country. With our small sales team working from our Head Office in Tewkesbury, the chances are you will probably end up chatting to the same team member a few times - and you’ll more than likely be talking to them again when your policy is up for renewal.  

Solutions to suit your needs

Our customers are at the forefront of our mind, so we offer a variety of options to ensure the cover is just right for your needs.  

Amendable cover limits - you can set the insurance cover limits to suit the requirements of your contract. There’s no point paying for more cover than you need!

Flexible payment options – You can choose to pay your policy in full or with monthly instalments. You can also purchase a policy up to 45 days in advance, giving you the time to get everything ticked off the list before your contract starts.  

Regular check-ins – we’re always keen to hear what our contractors are thinking, feeling and experiences, such as our recent lockdown and IR35 surveys. We use the results to check what else we can do to support you, and we also share our findings. Running your own company can feel lonely at times, and we think it’s important for you to know you aren’t alone.  

Retroactive cover - Unlike some other policies, when you buy a policy with Kingsbridge, you’ll get retroactive cover for up to 6 years included as standard. Retroactive cover provides you with professional indemnity insurance for claims made against work carried out before your policy started, giving you peace of mind when changing your insurance provider.

Experts in our field

At Kingsbridge, we think it’s important that we keep our contractors up to date with IR35 and contractor news. That’s why we regularly upload news and guidance articles to our Knowledge Hub, as well as sending out a bi-monthly e-newsletter for the key headlines.
