Who are we...

Important Update:

Total Cover is currently in liquidation. InShelter has now taken over the customer list and is currently managing the Total Cover website. Over time this will re-direct to Inshelter. We know that some people may have had a negative experience with Total Cover in the recent past and we want to assure you that we have no previous connection with Total Cover. At Inshelter we pride ourselves on our integrity and personalised, excellent service. Inshelter offers all of the same kinds of products formerly offered by Total Cover. If you require any of the products or services formally offered by Total Cover we look forward to offering you great service and high quality products.
