What is Plumbers Insurance?

As a plumber, you know the damage that water can do.

Working in your clients’ homes exposes you to a number of risks including accidental damage to pipework or faulty fittings.

If you cause property damage or injury to a member of the public and are found responsible, our insurance will cover you against claims for compensation.

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 plumbers?

Public Liability Insurance

Public Liability Insurance isn’t legally compulsory for plumbers but most people in the industry think it’s essential.

Public sector organisations and large companies are unlikely to work with an uninsured plumber, 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.
