What is workshop insurance?

When you run a business that involves carpentry, mechanical repair, joinery or another type of workshop, there will be a set of equipment and tools you rely on to keep things running. This means that if any of your equipment is damaged, stolen or lost, you could find yourself unable to continue your work and even financially unable to pay for the repairs or replacements required to get you back into operation.

Workshop insurance can cover you against these types of eventualities, as well as the expenses that could be associated with yourself, an employee or anyone else in the workshop being injured. You and your staff deal with specialist equipment that carries an inherent risk of injury, and if there is an incident then you run the risk of a liability claim being brought against you. These types of claims can require a legal defence, which carries an expense both in terms of paying solicitors and also the cost of fines if you are found to be liable. At, we understand the needs of different types of workshop insurance needed and can help you get the right cover for you.

Who needs workshop insurance?

There are many businesses that use a workshop as their base of operations. Carpenters, joiners, mechanical or electrical repair specialists and many others operate out of a workshop, and these are the people that could find benefit in taking out a workshop insurance policy to protect themselves against the potential consequences of the risks in that environment.

Those risks are different for all workshops because there will be different types of tools and machinery, different processes and different numbers of personnel on the floor. Every workshop should be covered by the appropriate workshop insurance, and at we offer workshop insurance policies that can offer you a safety net in case something should go wrong.

What does workshop insurance cover?

There are various risks involved with operating a workshop of any type. Your tools and equipment could become damaged, lost or even stolen, or the work you are undertaking for a client could actually damage their property. Furthermore, the employees and various types of visitors you may have in your workshop, could be injured or worse.

All of these eventualities are possible however unlikely they may seem, and workshop insurance is designed to help when things go wrong. Workshop accidents and incidents cost money, and it will be between you and your insurance provider to assess the level of cover you need to protect you against the risks. At, our insurance experts can help you throughout the application process to ensure you understand the cover you are getting, and our premiums are competitive.
