But don’t be fooled into thinking a generic business insurance policy will cut it – your needs are different than other trades and other businesses, which means you more than anyone need tailored insurance built around your trade.

Keeping You Safe From Whatever Life Throws Your Way

Running a car valeting business doesn’t seem like it would be the most dangerous occupation, but even the lowest risk careers can cause accidents that can run your business in for a big compensation claim. No matter how careful you are, sometimes this just go wrong – and when they do, you want to know you’re protected. Here are just a few situations where your insurance could really save you in a crisis:


An unfortunate breakage

You’re cleaning a client’s car, giving it the full works treatment. But, unfortunately, as you’re clearing out the back seat to give the car a thorough hoovering, you accidentally drop your client’s laptop and it breaks. Your client then claims compensation for the damage to their property. This is where your public liability insurance comes in useful – it’ll cover the costs of the damage to their property, so you can carry on doing what you do best.

A chemical accident

You’re working with one of your employees, cleaning a client’s car. But as your employee is applying the cleaning chemicals to the outside of the car, they suffer severe chemical burns, due to not having the correct safety gloves to keep their hands protected. They decide to seek compensation from you for their injury. Employer’s liability insurance is your greatest ally in this situation – through it, your insurer will cover the costs of the claim for you, so you can continue to focus on running your business.
