As the world makes strives towards cleaner, renewable energy, the work of a solar panel installer is increasing. Whether you work solo or own your own company, with every new job comes a new set of risks, including the most dangerous one of all – working at height. Which means it’s all the more imperative in your trade to get insurance designed around these unique risks you face.

Why do you need solar panel installers insurance?

At Tradesman Saver, we understand that your business is your livelihood and it needs protecting. A generic policy isn’t enough – you need a policy specific to your trade. That’s why we’ve built ours from speaking with businesses like yours. We’ve wrapped up all our best covers into a package suitable for your trade. All you know to do is tailor the fine details with our online quote form to get insurance that meets your needs, every time.

What’s included with our Automatic Cover

There are many insurance options which would benefit your solar panel installers 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 solar panel installers 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 solar panel installer and you can get your quote online in minutes.

Solar Panel Installers – How We Can Help!

Working in such a high risk trade requires good quality protection.  How would you manage if somebody made a claim against you and you had to foot the bill?  Could your business survive huge legal costs and compensation claims?  That’s where our specialist insurance can be your saviour.  See examples below of where we can help:

Fall From Roof

You’re on a job with one of your employees, fitting a solar panel to a roof. But as your employee is climbing the ladder, the ladder collapses and your employee falls to the ground, gravely injuring themselves. They decide to file for compensation against you. This is where your employer’s liability insurance comes in handy – your insurer will cover the costs of the compensation, to allow you to continue doing what you do best.

Injured Pedestrian

You’re installing a solar panel on a client’s roof. As you’re fitting it to the roof, you accidentally knock one of your tools off and it slips off, hitting a pedestrian as they’re walking by. They choose to seek compensation from you. In this instance, your public liability insurance will protect you – it will pay out the costs of the compensation for you, so you’re free to focus on making your business a success.
