Tradesman Saver’s Public Liability Cover for Tent & Marquee Hirers
Whether you’re working at a festival or a village fête, public liability cover is essential for tent & marquee hirers at all events. Without it, you won’t be protected if an accident at work damages property, or injures a client or member of the public. For example, a mistake during assembly could cause the marquee to collapse in poor weather conditions, hurting anyone underneath. Or, while carrying a metal bar to begin construction, it’s possible you could hit or scratch vehicles or any other possessions in the vicinity. In these instances, the victims could attempt to claim compensation from your business, regardless of whether or not it was your fault. However, as public liability insurance protects you against damage and injuries, there’s no need to worry if the worst happens. With Tradesman Saver, you’ll never have to pay the high costs brought against you.

What is tent & marquee insurance?
Tents & marquees are the focal point of all outdoor events, from weddings and parties, to exhibitions, fêtes, and festivals, just to name a few. And though it’s easy to become caught up in the jovial atmosphere, it’s important to be aware of the potential dangers. Accidents could always happen, especially when alcohol is being served, and a slip, trip or spillage could do irreparable damage to your materials and equipment. What’s more, you could also cause harm to others. Something as minor as an uneven floorboard, for example, could lead to a guest experiencing a nasty fall, prompting them to take legal action against your business. Taking out tent & marquee insurance before your next event means you’ll always be protected from the unexpected, as your policy ensures you’ll never have to pay for costly workplace damages.
Why do you need tent & marquee insurance?
The hazards are high whenever you erect a tent or marquee at an event. Not only is the structure itself potentially dangerous if assembled incorrectly, but you will also need to consider elements like flooring and sound systems, which would be very expensive to replace if damaged. This is why most insurance providers refuse to offer you cover, considering your profession not to be worth the risk. However, tent & marquee hirer’s insurance from Tradesman Saver guarantees that you’ll have all the cover required to keep your business safe. Unlike standard insurance packages, our dedicated policy has been made with tent & marquee hirers in mind, and has your back in the face of all the unexpected accidents you could face.
