Builder-friendly liability insurance

19th February 2013 Print

Build Assure, part of the FMB, has announced the launch of its Builder’s Liability Insurance offering, which has been specifically tailored by trade professionals for the Building and Construction sector.

Crucial for builders and contractors, Builder’s Liability Insurance offers a range of optional covers protecting businesses against risks such as Public and Employers Liability, loss or damage to tools or contract works as well as Personal Accident benefits. So, whether they are working on large construction projects or performing minor household repairs, liability insurance is an essential part of a builder’s job.

Available to Build Assure and FMB members at preferential rates, the new Builder’s Liability Insurance has been designed by professionals with extensive trade experience to meet the everyday needs of builders and contractors. It will also be offered to non-members looking to protect their business, and pocket, from unforeseen incidents and third party compensation claims.

David Hill, Director at Build Assure, comments: “Tailored by builders for builders, our new Builder’s Liability Insurance offering should be a great success as it covers everything contractors and building companies could want in one easy and competitively-priced package. Core Public Liability Insurance comes as standard, with Employers Liability cover for those with employees, but we also offer additional options so that, no matter what type of coverage you are seeking for your business or a particular project, we can provide a flexible and practical package to suit your needs.”

Build Assure’s Builder’s Liability Insurance offering has the added security of being fully insured at Lloyd’s of London. In addition to Public Liability cover of up to £5 million in respect of accidental injury to the public or damage to their property and Employers Liability, it can also cover: personal accidents, both in work and leisure time, contract works up to the contract price limit and theft, loss or damage of tools for sums between £1,000 and £3,000 per person, as well as personal effects.

Build Assure also offers other practical and flexible assurances for the Building and Construction sector including Surety Bonds and a variety of Domestic and Commercial building work Warranties, including New Home Warranties, which include access to expert and independent buildings inspection services in partnership with the British Board of Agrément.

Mr Hill continued: “Most builders and contractors are familiar with us and the FMB so they’ll know that, as with all of our other services and policies, our new Builder’s Liability Insurance is an offering that they can trust – in any event.”

Build Assure is also currently in the process of expanding its offerings with the development of further, soon-to-be released business vehicle and personal motor, and household insurances for operatives in the Building and Construction sector.
