What insurance does a pest control business need?

Public liability insurance is often a very important cover for pest controllers and most other trades, 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.

Personal accident insurance is worth considering for anyone who works with potentially dangerous equipment, and working in pest control comes with particular risks. This cover insures you against serious injury, or even death - paying out for both lost income and medical costs if you were unable to work after an accident.

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.

You can also include insurance for your tools and other business equipment.

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.
