What insurance do tradesmen need?

The insurance you need will depend on your specific type of business and the individual risks it faces, but these are popular covers for tradesmen:

Tradesman public liability insurance

Public liability insurance tends to be an important cover for tradesmen, as it can protect you if you're sued because someone is injured or their property is damaged. Simply Business offers between £1 million and £5 million in cover, to protect you against legal fees and compensation costs.

Employee, accident and tools cover

If you have employees, contractors, casual workers or temporary staff, you’re usually 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 covers you against serious injury, or even death - paying out for the likes of lost income and medical costs.

Tool insurance is also popular with many tradesmen, as it covers your work tools against loss, damage or theft.

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.
