Protect Your Business
How it Works

Key Coverage for Plumbers:

Plumbers Public Liability Insurance
One of the most important components of plumbers' insurance is public liability coverage. This coverage protects you against claims made by third parties claiming personal injury or property damage caused by your plumbing activities.
Should a customer suffer an injury because of a plumbing issue, or if your work causes damage to a customer's property, public liability insurance helps cover the costs of legal fees and compensation payments.
Plumbing Business Employers Liability Insurance
As an owner of a plumbing business, it is crucial to comply with legal requirements by having Employers’ Liability insurance in place.
This protection is necessary even if you have part-time or casual workers. Employers’ Liability insurance safeguards your business in the event that a worker makes a claim, asserting they have suffered an injury due to their work with your company.
Prioritise the well-being of your employees and the security of your business by ensuring you have the necessary coverage in place.
Plumbers Tool Insurance
Enjoy the freedom of selecting coverage that provides security in case your tools are lost or damaged.
You can opt to insure your tools at all times or only during working hours. Moreover, our policies can cover tools that are left overnight in a vehicle, provided that the vehicle is securely parked, and the tools are not visible from outside.
When it comes to tool cover, there are a range of options – please see our full terms and conditions for details.
Professional Indemnity Insurance
As a skilled plumber, you often provide valuable advice to customers regarding their plumbing requirements. However, there is potential liability when someone claims that you have provided incorrect professional services, advice, or designs while you are considered the 'expert on site'.
Fortunately, our insurance policies can cover you in the event of a claim that is made during the Period of Insurance, ensuring your protection in such situations.
Plumbers Contract Works Insurance
Pays for the costs to repair or redo work that is in progress that suffers from damage covered by this policy, such as fire, theft or flood.
It’s particularly important for plumbing contractors working on larger projects and new build sites where work in progress can be delayed and therefore vulnerable.
Goods In Transit
Having stock, tools and product shipped directly to the site means there’s always a risk of it being damaged or stolen while in transit. Frustrating and potentially creating delays, there’s an associated cost for replacement, too.
Goods In Transit Insurance pays if your goods are damaged while in transit, anywhere within the UK.
