Specialist Insurance To Help You Build Your Business

Working as a builder is tough, but rewarding, living. You work long hours, you put a lot of strain on your body and, come bitter winter or scorching summer, you’re working outdoors, toiling away. But when you run your own building company on top of all of that, your workday doesn’t stop when you kick your shoes off at the door. Before you’ve even put your feet up, you’re handling invoices and paperwork and the load seems never-ending. The last thing you want at the end of all of this is to be faced with a compensation claim that could shut down your business.

That’s where we come in. Here at Henry Seymour & Co, we’ve been helping builders get the right insurance through our tradesman-specific brand, Tradesman Saver, for over a decade. We’ve helped over 100,000 customers with their insurance since launching and, through working closely with those customers, we’ve designed an insurance policy specifically to suit the needs of builders. Customise with our online quote form on our brand website and get insurance that’s the right fit for your business, every time.

Get The Know-How: Typical Builder’s Insurance Claims

When you’re working in the building industry, sometimes it doesn’t matter how careful you are – accidents seem to have a way of happening when you least expect them. Making sure you’re insured when things like this do happen is absolutely crucial in securing the future of your business. Here are just some of the things that your builder’s insurance could help you protect against:


Tripping up

You’re out working on a job building an extension at your client’s property. You’ve left some building materials near the client’s conservatory door, but as they’re coming out to give you a well-deserved cup of tea, your client trips over some bricks, and ends up both injuring themselves. They decide to seek compensation from you for the injury they’ve suffered. In this particular case, your bluilder’s public liability insurance is your shield – through it, your insurer will cover the cost of the claim, so you can continue focusing on what you do best.

A fiery conclusion

You’ve been working on a building project for a few months, building a new home for a client on a construction site. The work is almost finished, however the electrician hired on site makes a mistake wiring the property and it catches fire, burning all your months of toil to the ground. In this instance, you’ll be thankful of your contractor’s all risks insurance. With it, your insurer will pay the costs of re-doing the work, so your business doesn’t have to suffer because of someone else’s mistake.
