What's covered in our electrical contractors insurance?

We’re always transparent about what’s included in our cover. But if you’re not sure what kind of cover you need, our friendly team is always happy to help.

Please note this list is not exhaustive – refer to your full policy documents for details.

What is insured?

  • Corporate manslaughter – if someone dies as a result of a failure by your business to provide adequate duty of care, you could face an unlimited fine. We can cover up to £10 million (depending on your trade).
  • Efficacy or ‘failure to perform’ cover will protect you should a product or service fail to perform its intended function. We can cover up to £1 million.
  • Electrical vehicle charging installation insurance included as standard, at no extra cost.
  • Employers liability – a legal requirement if you employ staff, even on a contract basis. This will protect you if an employee becomes ill or is injured as a result of their work.
  • Loss of customer keys cover up to £50,000.

  • Professional indemnity standard cover up to £1 million on scheme but we can also provide unlimited cover. If you are carrying out periodic inspections and issuing EICRs, your NICEIC registration requires you to have cover of a minimum of £250,000. This cover will protect you for any errors or omissions you make.
  • Public liability insurance cover – your NICEIC registration requires you to have a minimum of £2 million – this protects you if a claim for injury or damage to your customer’s property is made.
  • Standard height limit 20m, and depth restriction 2m.

  • Discount for up to five years claims-free.

And, optional extras when required:

  • Contract works – cover designed to protect work that is already underway if it is damaged by an insured event like a fire, flood, storm, vandalism or theft.
  • Tools – cover for your tools if they are lost, damaged or stolen. Protection starts from £1,500 to £10,000 per claim and includes tools stored in your work vehicle.
  • Goods in transit – protection if your materials are lost, stolen or damaged when in transit.
  • Hired in plant insurance for electrical contractors – a policy that covers plant machinery in case of damage, loss or theft. Cover is up to £50,000.
  • Increased efficacy cover up to £1 million.

  • Legal expenses – legal costs in settling or defending a claim, solicitor’s fees and other expenses relating to official enquiries or coroner’s inquest.
  • Personal accident and short-term income protection – we're not just talking about injuries at work – a back injury on the golf course, a DIY incident at home, or a nasty illness like pneumonia can all be covered.
