What is Carpenters Insurance?
Using sharp tools and heavy materials, and working in clients’ homes means a simple mistake can easily cause property damage or injury.
If a customer or another third party makes a claim and you’re found responsible, our insurance will cover your compensation costs.
With Churchill, you get reliable, flexible cover for all aspects of your business.
We can tailor our cover to suit your needs and offer you insurance that’s there when you need it.
What insurance do we have for carpenters?
Public Liability Insurance
Public Liability Insurance isn’t legally compulsory for carpenters but most people in the industry think it’s essential.
Public sector organisations and large companies are unlikely to work with an uninsured carpenter, so you could miss out on valuable work if you’re not covered.
Having Public Liability Insurance means you’re protected if you or an employee accidentally injures a member of the public or damages their property.
Our Public Liability Insurance offers you up to £1 million of cover as standard, with the option of increasing it to up to £10 million.
Carpenters would be lost without their tools.
You can cover your valuable tools and business equipment up to £10,000 as an optional extra for added peace of mind.
Our tools cover includes mobile phones and laptops.
Don’t forget your van
Most tradesmen would be lost without their van.
Get cover for your van if you use it to carry your tools and equipment to work.
Churchill van insurance is arranged and administered by our partner Brightside Insurance Services ltd
