    I would get public liability insurance also
    if someone trips over your gear on the floor they could try and sue the hell out of you
    very cheap insurance considering most policies will cover you over a £ million

    I use a Ford Transit. 2001 Reg. 2Ltr Diesel SWB. Fitted with a tank. Insured by A-PLAN Insurance. Just had the renewal £273 fully comp for the year.

    They also insure the business too. Cost £16.00 per month. £5 Million cover.
