As a highly trained and technical tradesperson, you will understand the areas of concern in your profession. What risks and dangers can installing heavy garage doors possess, and what could go wrong on any job. 

That's why Rhino Trade Insurance is here to help. We set up shop to assist trades across the UK in unlocking the best possible trade insurance for their profession.

The importance of GARAGE DOOR AND GATE FITTERS insurance

Where would homeowners be without the humble Garage Door and Gate Fitter? Everybody likes to think that they can do a spot of DIY, but hanging a picture and installing an up and over garage door are quite a different kettle of fish!

In essence, you would be hard-pressed to come across a tradesperson in the UK who doesn't have this insurance. If you do, then that individual will be taking a huge gamble. What's funny is they aren't actually breaking the law, however, should something ever go wrong on-site, they'd have no cover and would need to pay the compensation out of their back pocket! Potentially putting them out of business.

Trade Insurance for Garage Door and Gate Fitters is a serious priority. It adds so much value to your business! On the off chance that you have a bad day, insurance will be your safety net. Rhino has come up with a handful of excellent coverage options for you. But what can we offer?

To better understand what insurance would benefit you as a Garage Door and Gate fitter, we'll start with our most common and popular piece of trade insurance: Public Liability. 

As a Garage Door and Gate Fitter, your work revolves around visiting clients' homes and customers' business properties and dealing with members of the public and third party suppliers. That's what our Public Liability Insurance protects you against. Suppose you happen to cause some damage to your client's property or injure a member of the public or cause accidental death to a third party visiting your business. You will be covered for any incoming claim. 

Imagine that you are taking delivery of 10 roller garage doors to your business unit, and inside, you are stacking them up until they fall over and injure the supplier's driver. Your Public Liability Insurance will kick right into gear at the moment and shield you from the claim he/ she may bring forward. 

Here are what you can expect from Rhino's Public Liability Insurance: 

  • Rhino offers superb protection that starts at a mere £72.80 a year! 
  • We can provide our business cover for £1 million, £2 million and £5 million.
  • You only need to pay a standard excess of £500 for any liability claim.
  • You can make interest-free, monthly payments if you wish. 
  • You will be given your documents and certificates instantaneously via your online account. We'll also post them to you.

Having trade insurance protects your business interests, but it also appeals to newer, potential clients. In today's world, customers are asking more and more to see evidence of insurance before work starts. Also, if you ever look to work with local councils or trade bodies, they will automatically need you to have a certain level of protection in place.

Some of the most common insurance policies for your trade include:

  • Public Liability Insurance: As mentioned above, should you inflict injury, cause damage or accidental death to a member of the public, customer's property or third party, you will be covered.
  • Professional Indemnity Insurance: Garage Doors and Gates require some design thought, so if you offer advice, guidance and designs as a service - this could land you in hot water if that advice goes wrong. This insurance will guarantee you cover in that predicament.
  • Tools in Transit Insurance: Almost all trades live and die by their tools. Without them, their jobs would take a hell of a lot longer! Tools Insurance is one of the most popular insurance options around and protects you if they are stolen, lost or damaged. 
  • Legal Expenses Insurance: If you find yourself in a legal predicament and want help with your situation, this type of insurance is designed to offer assistance and defence. 
  • Personal Accident & Sickness Insurance: As a Garage Door and Gate Fitter, you are most likely a self-employed tradie. What happens if you get sick or injured and can't work? This protection makes sure you are financially covered in the event you can't work!
