Cover with glazing contractors in mind

As a glazing contractor, you'll know that glazing carries the potential for serious accidents, so for anyone in the glazing industry public liability insurance is important. At Trade Direct insurance, we understand the specific needs of glaziers and can offer you a uniquely developed public liability insurance product that helps ensure you, your workers and the public are protected.

Trade Direct’s self employed glazing contractors public liability policy offers you cover limits of £1 million, £2 million and £5 million, and Employers' Liability cover of £10 million is automatically included if you have direct employees or labour only sub-contractors - up to a maximum of 15 people.

Policies that cover your business

We offer fast, hassle free and quality cover at a great price, including a No Claim Discount of up to 10% - if you have 2 years or more claim free. If you choose either Classic or Plus cover, we include as standard £1,000 of personal Tools insurance for the first person, proving cover 24 hours a day – wherever you are in the UK. This cover can also be extended to £15,000.

Another benefit, included as standard with Classic and Plus cover, is £100,000 of Professional Indemnity cover – designed to cover your losses if you are sued due to advice you provide in your professional capacity.

3 Levels of cover

Essentials cover includes Public Liability cover with limits of £1M, £2M or £5M and is designed for businesses with up to 15 employees, and an annual turnover of up to £3M. If you have employees, £10M of Employers’ Liability cover is included automatically, including 100 days of temporary employee cover. If you have more employees, or a higher annual turnover, please ring us, as we should be able to provide you with a quotation over the phone.
