It is a proper stand alone insurance, not a policy of last resort as so many are. Others were either reluctant to answer questions or the answers were 'Er, sorry that's not covered'.Thank you. Would you be able to summarise how you felt BASC insurance came out tops ?
One particular issue was the question of public liability cover, when engaged in conservation work in connection with our shooting. This related to the use of power tools, including chain saws. Most did not cover it. I got a straight answer in writing from the BASC insurers, to the fact that we would be covered, subject to the user being currently trained, equipped with ppe and complying with the risk assessment.
If you take the time to carefully read some of the policies, you may agree that they just don't come up to scratch. Some are very narrow indeed. The BASC policy by contrast is very comprehensive, in my view.
I think it important that SD members do not allow any antipathy towards BASC, for whatever reason, to cloud judgement on the quality of insurance provided.
Thankfully shooting accidents in the UK are extremely rare, however the potential consequences are grave indeed. I choose the BASC insurance because I think it to be the best available. That's my view and my choice
