Covers to consider for your window cleaning business:

Window cleaning insurance covers

Public liability insurance

Public liability cover as part of your window cleaners insurance can protect you from claims made against you by your clients and other members of the public for accidental injury, or accidental damage to their property. For instance, if you damaged a window during the course of your business, or a passer-by tripped over a ladder or hose, you may be liable to pay compensation. As careful as you may be, accidents do happen. Public liability insurance can protect your livelihood against large pay-outs for compensation in these instances.

Employers' liability insurance

If you have staff working for you, you will need to take out employers' liability cover to fulfil your legal requirement. Your window cleaners insurance can ensure all those involved in your business are protected against accidental damage or injury in the course of your business. Climbing ladders and working with glass can be risky, so ensuring you have the correct cleaning business insurance is essential.

Personal accident insurance

Personal accident cover can also be included in your window cleaner insurance, which is specifically designed to protect business owners and business partners against accidents at work. If you fell from a ladder and broke a limb, you may not be able to return to work for a while.

Specialist tools and equipment insurance

Tools and equipment cover can also be incorporated into your window cleaning insurance policy and can be protected against a number of perils. Should your equipment become damaged, this may impact your ability to trade for a while.

Business interruption insurance

Business interruption cover can safeguard your income and expenses in this instance, so if your equipment is stolen, you won’t be out of pocket while you get back up and running.

Commercial legal expenses

You may wish to include commercial legal expenses within your insurance, to offer protection against tax and VAT disputes, employment disputes and compensation awards, as well as cover should you or a member of staff be called up for jury service.

"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."
