Public liability insurance is often a very important cover for handymen and property maintenance specialists, as it can protect you if someone is injured or their property is damaged because of your business. Simply Business offers between £1 million and £5 million in cover, to protect you against this cost.
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 something you might consider as a handyman given the range of different scenarios you might face at work. It will pay out for both medical costs and loss of income. Consider adding this to your policy if you would struggle to make ends meet if left unable to work following an accident.
The average insurance claim for handymen is £4,410 – could you afford this if the worst happened? (Average claim being £4,410. Based on data from 21 November 2018 - 20 November 2019, for comparison only. Cancellation charges may apply, please refer to our full terms & conditions.)
