What insurance do construction companies need?

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

Professional indemnity insurance is a vital consideration for all businesses that give advice or offer professional services to other businesses. It covers you in the event that you give faulty advice that causes financial loss to a client.

Personal accident insurance may be important for those working in construction as it covers both lost earnings and medical costs if they result from a serious injury sustained at work.

Tool insurance, plant and machinery insurance and business equipment insurance are also popular covers for construction businesses.

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.
