The Importance of Business Insurance for Handymen

As a master of many trades, your working life will probably be undoubtedly varied. You could find yourself fixing the guttering on a five-storey roof one morning and tending to a light fitting in a domestic property in the afternoon. However, there is one common aspect to most jobs you carry out: they will carry some form of risk to you, your staff or subcontractors, or the general public, so comprehensive insurance is essential.

These risks can be as diverse and varied as the job you do and could include running the risk of electrocution or falling from a ladder. Your tools, materials, and equipment could fall causing damage to property or people. Heavy equipment or corrosive materials could damage flooring or furniture. You could accidently hit a water pipe or electricity cable causing significant damage. And, should your expensive tools and equipment be stolen or suffer accidental damage, you may lose money from having to cancel work, leaving you seriously out of pocket.

Because the nature of your work is so varied and specialised, it’s essential that your insurance is equally flexible, giving you the protection you need to get you back on track should you ever need to make a claim.
