Client Testimonial

Im really impressed with how quick and easy it was to get covered by Trade Shield, the whole process only took 5 minutes to get covered online, their policies are underwritten by MetLife who are one of the world's largest insurance companies which gave me confidence. I would recommended Trade Shield for their quick, easy and efficient service, I have already referred some of the guys on my site to them.Mr A Bridges-Bricklayer-Dartford

Client Testimonial

I had been thinking about getting cover for a while since becoming self employed. I was attracted to Trade Shield policy as it covers most scenarios which I was concerned about, one great benefit is the fact they cover hospitalisation for pre existing health conditions after 1 year, having bad knees this was a real plus point as I will probably need surgery in the future, a no brainer for a relatively small monthly cost.
