in the mid nineties I approached my insurer to raise my public liability insurance from I think it was £1m to £5m for a period of a couple of months whilst overseeing work adjacent to a trunk road (£5m was a requirement of the client for being involved in the work). I recall they charged me I think another £50 at that time and it reverted back to £1m at the end of that specific time window

Professional indemnity is a different matter of course and needs to be maintained throughout on the basis that you can never foretell which job might come back and bite you

suggest you approach your insurer and ask the question

Jim Unwin, asked the question...

"How competent is a person who only wants to be insured for one job?"

To answer that question diplomatically I will simply ask another one.

How wise is a person who spends money on insurance they do not need?

Simon Valente.

PS Rob, have you tried contacting any big insurance company and asking to speak directly to one of their insurance underwriters?

Rob,
Not wanting to be unhelpful: but the question has to be asked:- How
competent is a person who only wants to be insured for one job??
