There are many insurance options which would benefit your builders 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 builders 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 builder and you can get your quote online in minutes.

  • Accidental damage to your client’s vehicle through splashing render when you’re applying it to brickwork
  • A client tripping over a cable of one of your power tools while you’re working
  • Damage to a client’s neighbour’s fence whilst building an extension
  • Injury to member of the public caused by tripping over an uncovered trench
