What does Tradesman Insurance cover?

Tradesman Insurance covers risks that you face as a tradesperson, including:

Tradesman tools icon
Equipment Cover

Stolen or damaged work tools can be very expensive to replace and delay or stop you from working.

Having the right cover in place will help you to replace your tools quickly and minimise the disruption to your business.

Public Liability Icon
Public Liability Insurance

Public liability insurance will protect you if a customer or member of the public makes a claim against you. This could be for financial losses or an injury they may have suffered due to negligence.

For example, if you accidentally damage your customer’s property during work, public liability insurance gives you peace of mind that the cost of compensation and legal fees is covered.

It’s not a legal requirement, but if you don’t have the correct insurance, you could miss out on work. Many local authorities make this a requirement of you working with them. Many trade associations won’t allow you to register with them without proof of a valid public liability policy either.
