Sponsor Spotlight: Craft Cover

We are delighted to welcome our newest sponsor, insurance company Craft Cover. Craft Cover is the brainchild of Alison Bellamy, a passionate crafter. By day she's a director for Walmsleys, an insurance broker, so she decided to combine these two parts of her life in Craft Cover – a specialist insurance broker for crafters great and small. Craft Cover itself was launched in January of 2015, but Alison's experience as an insurance broker spans 30 years and countless different clients and industries.

From the beginning, Craft Cover has dedicated itself to making insurance easy and understandable for crafters. We've built an online quote engine that makes it quick and simple to get an insurance quote for your business. We're also available over the phone, if you prefer to talk things out. We've worked hard to get an understanding of all the different craft niches our clients occupy, to try and give them the best value possible out of their insurance.

Walmsley's pride themselves on their high-quality service, and Craft Cover is no different. We're Chartered Insurance Brokers, which means we've committed to the highest standards of quality and ethics. When you choose to work with us, you can rest assured that you're in safe hands. We're always working to make sure that the service we provide is the best out there – whether that means stepping up our customer service, or reviewing our insurance providers to make sure we're giving out only the best insurance possible.

We've put a lot of thought and effort into ensuring that the insurance we provide for crafters is tailored to them. Just some of the benefits we offer include preferential terms for home workers, automatic cover for unlimited attendance at craft fairs, exhibitions or shows anywhere in the EU and up to 20% no claims discount. We can provide cover for exporting abroad including the USA & Canada, and offer the option to include demonstration, tuition or workshop cover. We even accept payment by PayPal.

We hope that we've thought of everything to give our clients a truly bespoke insurance package that fits their needs without breaking their budget. We're always looking for feedback, however, and are keen to learn more about our industry, and the needs of our clients, as we grow together. When you choose Craft Cover, you get the best of both worlds. On the one hand, Craft Cover's dedicated staff are highly experienced in the world of craft insurance, and can get you exactly what you need, at a good price. On the other hand, you benefit from having all of Walmsleys Commercial Insurance Brokers behind you – working hard to find the best insurance providers, and making sure that we're providing the best service we possibly can, for all our clients.
