Covers for tradesmen

Tradesman public liability insurance

As a tradesman it's essential to protect your business when you are out and about. Tradesman liability insurance can be tailored to cover you against unforeseen events that could leave you and your business exposed to financial loss. Public liability insurance is typically designed to safeguard against injury or accidental damage to third party property, meaning that if you cause damage to someone's property, or anyone falls over your tools, any compensation awarded against you would be taken care of.

Employers' liability for tradesmen

"I’ve used Premierline for my work insurance for a few years now. They always find me such competitive prices. As a small business owner I really couldn’t afford the prices when I looked online myself especially after having had no work for 7 weeks when Covid-19 first hit. So it was a huge relief to find a policy I could afford and be ready for when work started to pour in."

Mrs Bridger, Cleaning Contractor, Devon (Customer since April 2017)

"I rang Premierline just to check other insurance offers, after my sky high renewal from my previous insurer. The adviser was friendly and very easy to understand and talk to and he got me a fantastic deal. Very happy.”

Mrs McCall, Pet Shop, North Shields (Customer since January 2021)

"Overall, Premierline offered a great service in securing my annual Professional Indemnity insurance. It was a very simple process and everything was explained well."

Mr Jones, Marketing Consultancy, Manchester (Customer since September 2021)
