Protect Your Business
How it Works

The Benefits of a Tradesman Insurance Policy for Builders:

Tools and Equipment Insurance
Builders rely on a wide range of tools, machinery, and equipment for construction projects.
Our insurance policy provides coverage for theft, loss, or damage to your tools and equipment, ensuring that you can replace them promptly and get back to work.
Choose from in-work hours cover or 24/7 cover. And if you leave tools in your vehicle overnight, you can opt to protect them there, too. When it comes to tool cover, there are a range of options – please see our full terms and conditions for details.
Contract Works Insurance
Construction projects come with inherent risks, such as damage from accidents or fire.
Our contract works insurance covers the cost of repairing or rebuilding works in progress, protecting you from financial losses and potential project delays.
Public Liability Insurance
Public liability insurance is crucial for builders as it covers you against claims made by third parties for personal injury or property damage caused by your work.
This coverage protects your business against potentially costly liability claims that could arise during construction projects.
Employers Liability Insurance
If you have employees, employers' liability insurance is a legal requirement in the UK.
It covers you in case an employee suffers injury, illness, or death due to work-related activities.
Product Liability Insurance
Builders may install or supply products that cause injuries or property damage.
Our product liability insurance covers the associated costs, protecting you from potential costs.
