Tradesman Saver’s Public Liability Cover For Wood Preservers
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 wood preservers 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 wood preservers 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 wood preserver and you can get your quote online in minutes.

It Shouldn’t Happen To A Wood Preserver
Here are some examples of claims:
You’re treating some wood in a customer’s property, when you accidentally knock over some of your client’s onto their carpet and it damages their flooring. They claim compensation against you for the damage to their property. Your public liability insurance is key here – it’ll cover the costs of the compensation, so you can continue focusing on what you do best.
One of your employees is working on a ladder during a job, when the ladder breaks and collapses, causing them to fall and injure themselves. They choose to claim compensation against you. Your employer’s liability insurance is your ally here – it’ll cover the costs of the compensation, so you don’t have foot the bill yourself.
