I'm an electrical contractor, what type of insurance do I need?

Precisely what cover you need depends on the nature of your business – the kind of work you do and where, whether you employ people – and whether you have business premises or vehicles. The insurance cover you typically need includes public liability and professional indemnity – both of which are included as standard (amongst other cover features) in our electrical contractors liability insurance product. You may also need employers liability which is compulsory for most businesses that employ one or more people. You may then choose to add other cover features like property insurance to protect your shop, office, workshop, or other business premises; van insurance; and tools insurance – as well as covers such as personal accident and income protection.

I work in more than one trade. Can you cover this?

Yes, we offer cover for both primary and secondary trades. So, if you work mainly in one trade – for instance, as an electrician – select this as your primary, or main trade. Then, if you also work on occasion as a plumber, for example, you should choose this as your secondary trade.
