What is tailors insurance?

Being a tailor isn’t an easy job, but it’s definitely rewarding. You’ve spent countless hours shaping your business from the ground up, and now you want to make sure it’s protected. But a generic insurance policy won’t cut it – you need a policy tailored to your unique demands.

Why do you need tailors insurance?

Here at Tradesman Saver, we understand that every business is individual and has its own set or risks that need to be addressed. That’s why we’ve devoted our time to working with businesses like yours in order to design a tailor-made insurance policy, suited to your trade. Customise your policy with our online quote form for insurance that’s the perfect fit for your business.

Tradesman Saver’s Public Liability Cover For Tailors


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)

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

Why do I need tailor’s insurance?

Many tailors don’t realise the need for insurance until it is too late.  You think that the work you do is without many risks but you never know!  Check out the real-life claims example below:

Ripped Off!

You’re taking up the trousers of a client’s designer suit, but as you’re finishing up stitching the hem on the sewing machine, the material snags and rips, damaging the trousers irreparably. You inform the client and they choose to seek compensation from you for the damage. Your public liability insurance is your saving grace here – it’ll pay to replace the suit, so you can get back to what you do best in no time at all.
