Insuring your plumbing business


Plumbing is a demanding profession that takes hard work and organisation, but sometimes things break, people make mistakes and disagreements with clients come up. With insurance for plumbers and pipefitters we’ll tailor your cover to your trade, so you’re covered when things don’t go to plan.

Why you need business insurance in plumbing


Illness and injury

Whether you’re working on construction sites or in a customer’s home, your employees, or even a member of the public could be injured and your business could get the blame. Injuries are upsetting and stressful, but they can also cost you time, money and your reputation. We’ll cover you for expenses and legal claims as well as loss of earnings if something goes wrong.

Unhappy clients

Sometimes a job takes longer than expected, or you need to make multiple visits to fix a problem. Occasionally mistakes creep in, property is damaged and you have to deal with unhappy clients. No matter who’s at fault, if a client decides to sue your business you’ll need a professional insurance policy in place that defends and protects you.

Problems with equipment

If important equipment or specialist tools are damaged, you’ll need to stop work until you can find what you need. That means delays, increased costs and frustrated clients. Plumbing business insurance will get your equipment repaired or replaced quickly, so you can get on with the job in hand.
