Whether you’re fitting a state-of-the-art locking system or simply replacing a set of keys, you need to have the back-up of a good locksmith insurance policy.
Plus, having an insurance policy in place reassures potential customers that you’re covered if something goes wrong.
Locksmiths’ insurance from Simply Business starts with public liability insurance, which can cover you if a customer or another member of the public makes a claim against you for injury or damage.Compare quotes
The exact insurance you need will depend on your individual business, but these are some of the key covers for locksmiths to consider:
Public liability insurance protects you against compensation claims made by a member of the public for injury or damage to their property. For example, you leave your tools on the floor and a customer trips over them and suffers an injury. If the customer claims compensation, your public liability insurance could pay for the compensation claim and any legal fees, up to the limit of your policy.
Tools insurance can pay to repair or replace your handheld tools if they’re damaged, lost or stolen. To get the right level of cover, you need to estimate the cost of replacing all of your tools.
If you have any staff, employers’ liability insurance is usually a legal requirement. This insurance covers claims made by an employee for injury or illness caused by their work.
Other covers you can choose to add to your locksmith insurance policy include business buildings insurance and business contents insurance if you have business premises, and business legal protection insurance to cover your legal fees if your locksmith business faces something like an employment tribunal or a tax investigation.
