Including public handling of animals
The owners of exotic and unusual pets may need to arrange public liability cover, as keeping such animals will almost certainly be excluded from the liability section of any household insurance policy. Where animals need to be licenced under the Dangerous Wild Animals Acts 1976 and 1984, it is a requirement of the licence that adequate public liability insurance is arranged.
Cliverton have considerable experience in arranging such insurance policies for private owners, and also for owners who use the animals for commercial purposes, including public display, lectures, educational visits and venom collection.
In certain circumstances, the cover can be extended to include handling of the animals by members of the public.
Property damage cover
We are able to arrange insurance for buildings, contents, tools, equipment, stock and other property used in association with your exotic pet business or your domestic collection of animals.
