Tailored insurance for glaziers and window fitters

Cutting, fitting and removing glass is delicate work, and when your trade involves such a fragile material mistakes can be both dangerous and costly.

From tool theft to workplace accidents, glass cutters face unique threats to their livelihood. If you, one of your employees or even a client injures themselves while you’re working on site, you’ll need to make sure you have the right cover in place.

At Simply Business you can combine the covers you need for your particular business to create a tailored policy that will have your back if things go wrong.

What insurance do glaziers need?

The insurance you need depends on your business and the risks you face, but these are popular covers for glaziers:

  • Public liability insurance is an important cover for glaziers as it covers you against any mishaps involving your clients or other members of the public. From tripping on tools to cutting themselves on misfitted glass, public liability insurance will cover the legal costs and payouts for injury or damage claims.
  • Tool insurance and stock insurance will keep you covered against the theft or damage of any of your stock or equipment. With a delicate medium such as glass, even the smallest chips or cracks can ruin your stock, and our stock insurance will ensure you don’t make a loss because of them.
  • Plant and machinery insurance covers heavy machinery, whether it’s owned by you or hired from somewhere else. If you’re using a cherry picker for those hard to reach windows, make sure it’s protected against theft and damage.
  • Employers’ liability insurance is a legal requirement for most businesses that have staff, so it’s an important consideration if you’re a glazier who employs anyone, even on a casual basis. It can cover compensation claims made by staff because they’ve suffered illness or injury as a result of their work.
  • Personal accident insurance covers serious injury, or even death - paying out for the likes of lost income and medical costs. Working as a glazier comes with certain risks, and this cover should be considered if you would struggle to make ends meet if left unable to work following an accident.

The average insurance claim for glaziers is £3,139 – could you afford this if the worst happened? (Average claim being £3,139. Based on data from 21 November 2018 - 20 November 2019, for comparison only. Cancellation charges may apply, please refer to our full terms & conditions.)
