What Is The Best Insurance For Carpenters?

Rhino Trade Insurance 28 December 2023

As a carpenter, you're a master of your trade, but even the best craftsmen can't predict every twist and turn in the road ahead. In this blog post, we'll delve into the world of carpenters' insurance, exploring the various facets that make it an essential tool in your woodworking arsenal. 

From protecting your tools and craftsmanship to ensuring the security of your livelihood, we'll guide you through the labyrinth of insurance options, helping you carve out a safe and successful career. So, let's get started and chisel out the details of this key aspect of the carpenter's world - insurance.

Understanding the Carpentry Landscape:

Whether you are a seasoned professional or a budding artisan, understanding the diverse insurance options tailored for carpenters is essential. The insurance landscape can be as intricate as a dovetail joint, but fear not - the Rhino team are here to guide you through the maze.

The Essential Coverages

Public Liability Insurance:

Imagine accidentally damaging a client's property while you’re installing their bespoke bookshelf. Public Liability Insurance steps in, covering legal fees and compensation costs. Rhino Trade Insurance, a leading trade insurance provider in the UK, offers extensive Public Liability Insurance to safeguard carpenters from unexpected mishaps. You can opt to create a tailored policy that is cost-effective and covers you from £1 million up to £5 million

Employers' Liability Insurance:

If you have employees, Employers' Liability Insurance is a legal requirement in the UK. It provides financial protection if an employee becomes ill or injured due to work-related activities. Rhino Trade Insurance offers comprehensive coverage, ensuring both you and your team are protected on the job. With low prices, our cover can be taken out up to £10 million to cover your business. 

Tool and Equipment Insurance:

Your tools are your livelihood. Tool and Equipment Insurance from Rhino Trade Insurance safeguards your gear against theft and damage. Imagine the peace of mind knowing your cherished chisels and saws are protected, allowing you to focus 100% of your efforts on perfecting your craft. Check out how Rhino can protect your tools today. Our cover can help protect your vital instruments up to the value of £50,000 and won't break the bank! 

Specialised Coverage for Carpentry

Professional Indemnity Insurance:

For carpenters offering design services, Professional Indemnity Insurance is a must-have. It shields you from legal claims if a client alleges professional negligence or unsatisfactory work. Rhino Trade Insurance's expert advisors can assist you in finding the right policy tailored to your specific needs, with limits of indemnity of up to £2 million available. 

Personal Accident Insurance:

Should an accident cause you to get a major injury or pass away, Personal Accident Insurance pays out a lump sum payment at the indemnity level you have selected. While you are unable to work, the compensation can help cover any costs and expenses and guard against income loss. With Rhino, you can insure yourself with a lump sum payment of up to £50,000. 

Why Rhino Trade Insurance Stands Out:

  • Tailored Policies

Rhino Trade Insurance understands the unique challenges faced by carpenters. Our policies are meticulously crafted to suit the specific requirements of tradesmen and women, ensuring you get exactly what you need without unnecessary add-ons.

  • Expert Support:

Navigating the insurance world can be daunting. Rhino Trade Insurance's team of experts are on hand to provide personalised advice and support. We understand the intricacies of the carpentry business, making us the perfect partners in safeguarding your livelihood.
