The insurance you choose should depend on your individual business needs, but these are some of the key covers to consider:
Public liability insurance protects you against compensation claims made by a member of the public for injury or for damage to their property. For example, you’re fitting a carpet in a home and you leave your tools on the floor while you’re taking a break. Your customer trips over them and is injured. 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. You’ll need to calculate the cost of replacing all of your carpet fitting tools to get the right level of cover.
If you have one or more members of 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 carpet fitter insurance policy include business buildings insurance and business contents insurance if you have a premises, and business legal protection insurance to cover your legal fees if your business faces something like a tax investigation or an employment tribunal. You can also add personal accident insurance, in case you suffer a serious injury.
