Insuring your electrician business


From major construction projects to a late-night domestic call-out, an electrician’s job is varied. Your skills and experience are crucial, but sometimes things break, mistakes are made, or one of your customers is unsatisfied with the job. For electrical contractors, insurance matters because it means you’re covered when things don’t go to plan, for all sorts of reasons.

Why you need business insurance in electrical contracting


Illness and injury

Working on a construction site can be dangerous – you, your employees, someone on site or even a member of the public could be injured, whether you’re at fault or not. Injuries can be serious, sometimes life-changing. At the very least they cost you time, money and possibly your reputation. We’ll cover you for expenses and legal claims and we’ll help you retrain if the worst happens and you need to change career.

Unhappy clients

Disputes about project outcomes and deliverables seem almost inevitable. It could be that a key deadline is missed, or additional costly modifications are required. Maybe a client just changes their mind on a key detail. Whether the dispute is your fault or not, if a client brings a claim against your business, having a professional insurance policy in place will defend and protect you.

Equipment problems

If a key piece of equipment malfunctions or breaks, work stops until a repair or replacement is sourced. You then have to deal with shifting project deadlines and angry clients. Having insurance in place means we’ll cover the costs of repairs or replacements to get you back on track as quickly as possible.
