What insurance do carpenters need?

Public liability insurance for carpenters

Public liability insurance is often an important cover for carpenters and most other trades, in case someone is injured or their property damaged because of your business. Simply Business offers between £1 million and £5 million in cover, to protect you against this cost.

Other business insurance for carpenters

If you have employees, contractors, casual workers or temporary staff, you’re required by law to take out employers’ liability insurance. It’ll cover claims from employees who’ve been injured or become seriously ill as a result of working for you.

Personal accident insurance is crucial for any trade where you’re at risk of injury. Whether it’s dropping a heavy piece of wood on your foot, or something more serious, make sure you’re protected against any damage you might accidentally do to yourself.

Other covers available to carpenters include tool insurance, plant and machinery insurance and business equipment insurance.

It is a very good and easy to use service. I've been a customer for several years and the renewal system is very straight forward. I've always found the quotes competitive too. I'd definitely recommend Simply Business.
