What does gas fitters insurance cover?
Public liability insurance is vital protection for you and your business because it covers you against a claim from your customers and your staff. You set your own limits for public liability, employers liability and product liability too, up to £10 million, and can adjust these at any time depending on the growth of your business and diversification over time.
Your tools are vital to your trade and not at least for your customers safety. And should you prefer to insure these on your gas fitters policy we can provide flexible limits for all types of equipment including employee’s tools, specialist equipment and hired equipment too. Tools must be locked securely outside business hours, and a single item limit may apply.

Coupled with the liability and tools protection at levels set by you, you can be confident the insurance you have fits you correctly.
