Features of our workshop insurance

Cover for your workshop machinery, tools and buildings

Our workshop insurance can protect a range of tools and equipment, as well as stock and work in progress, against loss or damage from theft, fire, storm, flood, water damage and malicious damage (check your policy document for specific details). Cover is tailored to meet your specific business needs. If you own your workshop property then this can also be covered under the same policy.

Public liability cover for your workshop

Our workshop public liability insurance offers flexible levels of cover to meet the risks you may face from third-party injury claims arising from accidents on your premises where you are at fault. We can also include product liability insurance to protect you for claims for personal injury or damage to third parties arising from the goods you have manufactured, repaired or supplied.

Workshop insurance including business interruption cover

How reliant are you on your workshop? If it is destroyed by a serious fire, what costs and business expenses will you still have to pay for even though you are unable to trade? We can include business interruption cover in your workshop insurance that will protect your continuing overheads at a time when you are suffering a loss of income.

Employers' liability insurance to protect your workshop's staff

A legal requirement for any business that employs staff, employers' liability cover is included in our workshop insurance. Our policy protects you against personal injury claims from your staff from accidents in your workshop alleged to be caused through your negligence.
