Public Liability Insurance - recommendations


I've been asked by a couple of people would I shear their small flocks of sheep as a favour.

Prior to now I've only ever sheared my own or been on a course/assisting another shearing contractor so haven't needed it.

No doubt the insurance will cost me more money than I'll ever make however might prevent me getting in the sticky stuff.
