Here at Rhino, we work hard to understand the needs of almost all types of UK tradesmen. Whether you are cleaning windows or car bonnets, you still need the right insurance in place to protect you and your business, and that's what we at Rhino can offer.

Public Liability Insurance is a fundamental insurance policy to consider, as it offers core protection in various scenarios or accidents common amongst car valets. As a business owner, the last thing you will want to face is a hefty bill to pay for damages or fees for accidents or death caused to members of the public and their property due to the work you carry out. Public liability insurance acts as a safety net, so you don't have to stick your hand in your wallet if the worst happens and you ever need to make a claim.

An example of an accident that would lead to a claim being made on a car valet's public liability cover would be if a member of the public tripped over your tools and equipment whilst on a job and injured themselves. Another example of a car valet insurance claim would be if you smashed a garage window when performing your work duties.

Claims like this can get so expensive (our liability starts at £1 million cover) that without the right insurance in place, your business could severely suffer. With this in mind, having the right insurance in place, in this case, public liability cover for car valeting, will provide essential security in a trade rife with risks and hazards. Although not legally needed, a car valeting business's best bet of financially surviving an accident is to get the right level of cover. Remember, Public Liability protects against claims originating from injury or accidental death caused by your work to members of the public.

Let's take a look at what our public liability insurance offers:

  • Rhino's liability cover starts for as low as £6.07 per month (that's cheaper than about a 1000th of a Porsche!)
  • There are three levels of Public Liability Insurance available for car valets; £1 million, £2 million and £5 million cover (although if you're valeting a £5m car, then we want to see it!).
  • There is a flat £500 excess as standard on all claims (that's the rules!).
  • All policyholders have the option for an Interest-free monthly payment plan (handy!).
  • You can purchase insurance simply online in under 60 seconds (go on, we'll time you!)

Short, sweet answer: Yes! Although it's not a legal requirement, having tradesman insurance in place of any kind gives you the best possible chance of getting back to work and not suffering financially should accidents occur. Car valeting is by no means the most high-risk profession a professional can work in, but the need for insurance is just as great. Whatever the risks, having sufficient cover in place acts as a financial backstop in the unfortunate event of a claim and shows to any prospective clients or customers that you have taken the initiative and done your due diligence.

Every day, you and your employees (if you have them) are trusted with driving, cleaning and servicing a customer's prized possession, and even with the most careful car valet in the world, errors can still happen. Various claims can arise through slips and trips, damage caused on-site and working with substances that carry hazards, and for that reason, you must consider business insurance.

The cost of paying out small fortunes in the event of an accident can cripple a business, but with Rhino's Public Liability Insurance, your business is covered.
