What’s included with our Automatic Cover

Tradesman Saver’s damp proofing contractors insurance offers cover for public liability, protecting you in the event a member of the public or your client sustains an injury directly due to you completing your work. If, for example, someone trips on your tools and files a claim against your business, your insurance policy will cover any financial loss and legal expenses.

We offer a range of contractor-specific insurance policies, including electrical, building, and data cabling, perfect for any handyman.

Damp proofing contractors should consider a few optional insurance policies we offer, for added security against any accidents. If you employ a team as part of your business, you legally must have employer’s liability insurance, protecting you and your business against any injuries sustained by your team and the financial consequences it may have. We also recommend taking out a short term income protection policy, especially if you work alone. This covers you against any financial difficulties you may face should you fall sick, and don’t have the luxury of sick pay to fall back on. If you need any specific tools to complete your work, we suggest taking advantage of our tools and equipment insurance policy, which offers protection against accidental damage and theft.
