Ok

There are types of insurance for someone in the computer repair businesses.

The insurance could be to cover, damage to a client's property, technical issues, stolen data accusations, injured employee or employee disputes.

It's good also to incorporate.

We can discuss this more if you want to do so.

If not, please remember to rate my answer between 3 to 5 stars without any additional costs to you. That is how I get credit for answering your question. Best regards.

What insurance would you recommend? I’d be working on my own so I wouldn’t have any employees

The insurance would be small business insurance.

Below is a link to a website that discusses it for the tech repairs. You probably would want to investigate your options using this link as a starting point.
