How to buy tradesman insurance from YOUR Insurance

You have two options when buying a tradesman insurance policy from YOUR Insurance:

  • Compare quotes online: Click on the compare quotes button and you will be guided through a set of questions designed assess your needs. You will then be offered a series of quotes from our panel of insurers.
  • Arrange a policy over the phone: Call us on 0800 107 8949 and our team will take you through your options and do everything they can to get the cheapest deal that is appropriate for you.

I'm struggling to get a Tradesman Quote online?

You might have been through the online system and found it difficult to get a quote. Maybe it looks like nothing is available for you or your range of options is limited to just one or two policies.

The reason for this is probably that there is something about your business that is a little unusual, but this does not mean that you can’t be covered!

As a specialist broker, we are used to sourcing policies for clients with slightly more unusual businesses, so give us a call on 0800 107 8949 and let our team go to work in sourcing you a policy from the wider insurance market.

What is it difficult to find cover for?

You might need help finding cover if:

  • You work at heights
  • You work in high temperature environments
  • You mix manual and clerical work
  • You have a very high annual turnover
  • You have not been trading for very long
  • There is anything unusual or highly specialised about the work you do

Just because you can’t find a quote online does not mean we can’t help you. Our sales team will be able to source a wide range of policies on the open market that are more likely to cater to your needs.

Policies coming up for renewal

If you are about to renew your policy with your current insurance provider, now is an ideal time to compare your options. Our in-house team might also be able to help you out with something that you can’t find online and we might be able to get you a lower price than you have already been quoted.

Cover options

For your tradesman insurance policy, we can offer you the following forms of cover.

Public liability insurance

Public Liability Insurance

This will cover you against being sued for injuring third parties or causing damage to third party property when you are working.

Employers' liability

Employers Liability Insurance

If you have employees working under you, you will need employers’ liability insurance by law and without it you could face a hefty four-figure fine for every day it isn’t in place!

Tools cover


You might have acquired the tools of your trade slowly over time, but have you considered just how much it would cost to replace them all at once?

Plant cover

plant cover

A plant which you have hired for work on a contract or one that you own can be insured against any theft or malicious damage.

Contract works


This cover protects your building contracts against malicious damage whilst the work is still in progress. It also covers equipment and materials from theft or damage.

Policy benefits

We want to make getting your insurance as straight forward as possible and feel it is important that it doesn’t interrupt the way you work. To help you out with your policy, we can:

  • Spread out your payments: If you would prefer, you can chose to pay your premium in monthly instalments as opposed to the more traditional annual lump sum to help you manage your cash flow.
  • Keep money and time costs down: Your policy documents will be emailed to you and if you have any questions, you can call us for free.
  • Offer you financial confidence: YOUR Insurance is part of Towergate Underwriting Group limited, one of the largest independently owned insurance intermediaries in Europe and we are covered by the FSCS.
