What insurance do plumbers need?

Plumbers' public liability insurance

Public liability insurance is often a very important cover for plumbers, 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.

Other business insurance for plumbers

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 could be important for plumbers because of the particular risks you face. It covers you against serious injury and will pay out both lost income and medical costs if you were left unable to work following an accident.

Other covers available to plumbers 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.
