Contractors carry out numerous essential projects and it is therefore vital to obtain the correct insurance. All contractors need to ensure they are adequately covered from self-employed tradesmen to large construction firms. A contractor's policy will cover a wide range of occupations mainly those in the building and allied trades including electricians, shop fitters, double glazing and solar energy contacts and many more.

Policies can provide Public Liability protection with various limits of cover starting from £1,000,000. In addition cover can include numerous additional extensions tailored to individual requirements including:

  • Employers Liability Cover - £10,000,000 minimum limit
  • Plant & Machinery (hire in or owned by you)
  • All Risks cover for tools & materials

In most cases contractors are responsible for work and materials until a contract is completed and handed over and the policy will also provide this cover.
