There are many risks associated with members of the public visiting a builders merchants site that could lead to them being injured or their property being damaged. Public liability cover can protect you against the costs of a legal claim resulting from these unforeseen circumstances (for example, if a customer tripped over stock and injured themselves).
If you employ a team, or use subcontractors, you will by law need to take out employers' liability insurance, to protect your finances if an employee has an accident at work and tries to claim damages from you. Businesses have a legal duty to protect the safety of employees whilst at work.
Your premises, contents, stock and equipment are all elements of your business that require comprehensive protection against unforeseen events, such as fire, flood, theft and severe weather damage. Your cover can also include protection for your stock being kept in the open.
If products you have sold subsequently fail and cause third-party damage or injury, our product liability cover for builders merchants can cover the costs of a case and successful claim.
A builders merchant insurance package policy is specifically tailored for the needs of your business. The main elements that it should cover are your contents and stock, business interruption, money, combined liability cover for employers, product and public liability, and premises.
This is for businesses whose stock values fluctuate at different times of the year.
The policy will normally include a 25 to 30% seasonal increase in stock over Easter, bank holidays and 30 days prior to Christmas. We can tailor the months to meet your needs.
This cover allows your ‘sums insured’ to be increased by an agreed percentage for your busy times of the year, helping to keep your costs down. Make sure you let our team know if you'd like to add this cover.
We can provide cover for stock sold online and any exports you make to outside of the UK. It is very important that you let the team know when running through your details to ensure they provide you with the correct policy for your needs. In addition to products liability, you will also need to consider if goods in transit insurance is needed for deliveries.
