Tradesman Saver’s Public Liability Cover For Hod Carriers

Our standard cover is:

  • £1 million cover for public and products liability (with an option to increase to £2 million or £5 million)
  • £10,000 cover for any financial loss (£50K cover optional)
  • Worldwide liability cover for temporary work abroad for up to 14 days (excluding the USA and Canada)

There are many insurance options which would benefit your hod carriers business, and public liability is one of the most significant. This protects you if your work ends up damaging a client’s property or injuring a client or member of the public. For example, you may need to pay compensation if a client trips over your tools and is injured or you accidentally damage a customer’s carpet with your muddy work boots.

Claims such as this can cost a small fortune but having public liability cover means you won’t be responsible for paying any of the resulting expenses. You can purchase this as part of our automatic package, which also covers you for financial loss, legal expenses, and more.

Other relevant insurance policies for a hod carriers business include employer’s liability, which is a legal requirement for anybody who employs staff, and professional indemnity insurance.  Here at Tradesman Saver we have all the coverage you may need as a hod carrier and you can get your quote online in minutes.

It Shouldn’t Happen To A Hod Carrier

Sometimes, it doesn’t matter how careful you are in your line of work; there are always unforeseen circumstances you just can’t account for. Fortunately, if you have the right cover in place, it can help to minimise some of the impact. Here’s some examples of how our Tradesman Saver insurance could help you in a pinch:


Example 1

You are on a job at a customer’s home and are carrying bricks round to the back of the house. But as you are carrying the bricks, you accidentally trip over your tools and the bricks you’re carrying get hurtled at your customer’s car, causing considerable damage to the vehicle. The customer seeks compensation from you to repair the damage to their car. Fortunately, your public liability insurance has you covered – it’ll cover the costs of repairing the car, leaving you free to focus on keeping the job running on schedule.

Example 2

You’re working on a construction site with your team, but as one of your employees is transporting a heavy load of bricks, they injure their back, causing them considerable pain and rendering them unable to work. They choose to claim compensation from you for their injury. Your employer’s liability insurance is your safeguard in this situation – it will cover the costs of the compensation, so you can put your focus into getting the project running back on schedule.

*This indicative price is for £1m public and products liability, £250,000 legal expenses, £10,000 financial loss and £10,000 accidental death insurance cover for a sole trader. The price includes insurance premium tax but excludes our admin charge. 13% of new customers paid less than £54 between 1st January 2024 and 30th January 2024. The actual price you pay will depend upon your specific business requirements and will be affected by your trade, your claims history and the optional covers you select which are all priced separately during the quote process.
