What is Tradesperson Insurance?

Wherever you’re working as a tradesperson, whether you’re in someone’s home or on a site, it’s important that you have some form of insurance behind you so you can protect yourself. Tradesperson insurance is designed to protect you, your business, employees, and customers, whether you run a large construction business, or you’re a tradesperson working alone.

Accidents, property damage, or injuries can occur, leading to legal claims and financial consequences, and individuals or businesses working in various trades need insurance cover to ensure they aren’t left out of pocket if they’re required to compensate. There’s a range of insurance products you can buy which can protect you and your business:

We can arrange insurance cover for a wide range of trades too. Trades covered include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Builders
  • Carpenters
  • Painters and decorators
  • Electricians
  • Plumbers
  • Civil engineering
  • Groundworkers
  • Block layers
  • Allied trades

If you don’t see your trade listed here and you’re looking for tradesperson insurance, please submit your enquiry or give us a call and a member of our expert team will do their best to assist you.
