The Importance of Business Insurance for Tradespeople

Businesses and individuals may refuse to hire tradespeople that don’t have the appropriate level of insurance, therefore it’s essential that you have adequate protection in place.

As you work in a high-risk sector, comprehensive insurance is essential. The nature of your work, along with the equipment and materials you use on a daily basis, hold potential dangers for you, your staff or subcontractors, and the general public.

The main liability cover features can be extended by adding a range of optional extras, to create bespoke protection. We can include protection for your vehicles and plant, including the items you hire or loan in or out. We have a broad range of covers available for loss or damage to your property, contract works, and materials on site. There are even solutions for timber framed properties in the course of construction should you require them. We’ll guide and advise you along the way, so you can be sure you’ll get the tradesman insurance cover that’s right for you.
