Tradesman Saver’s Public Liability Cover For Shelving & Rack Installers

Our standard cover is:

  • Up to £5 million cover for public and products liability
  • £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)

Working as a shelving and rack installer comes with various dangers, including falling from height and trapping your fingers. Not only this, but you risk injuring others and damaging their property too, which can lead to costly compensation claims against your business. All of this makes a comprehensive shelving and rack installation insurance policy essential.

Why public liability insurance is critical

Public liability insurance will protect you if you injure a customer or member of the public, or damage their property. For example, somebody could trip over your tool box, or you could badly damage a client’s wall when attempting to put up a shelf or rack. With public liability cover, it will be your insurer and not you that foots the bill for any resulting compensation claims against you. You can purchase this as part of Tradesman Saver’s automatic package, which also covers you for financial loss, legal expenses, and more.

Why you need other covers too

As touched upon, you and your staff also face certain risks on the job. Perhaps an employee strains a muscle transporting a unit from A to B, for instance. With employer’s liability, your business is also protected if an employee claims against you for any harm suffered while working, while personal accident insurance covers the costs involved if you or a member of staff can’t work because of injury. Other beneficial covers include tool insurance to replace any stolen, damaged or lost tools right away, and professional indemnity insurance if your business is sued for any errors it makes.

It Shouldn’t Happen To A Shelving & Rack Installer

Here are some examples of claims:


Example 1

You’re working on a construction site and you leave your tools on site to grab some lunch during your break. But when you return to the site, you discover all your tools have been stolen. Fortunately, your tools & equipment insured has your back – your insurer pays to replace the stolen tools, so someone else’s greed doesn’t have to cost you your livelihood.

Example 2

Your employee is carrying some heavy racking on a job in a customer’s premises, but the weight causes them to put their back out and leaves them in considerable pain. They decide to seek compensation from you for their injury. Your employer’s liability insurance is champion here – it will cover the costs of the compensation, so you can focus on running your business.
