Cabinet maker insurance

Whether you’re a subcontractor or business owner, we can arrange cabinet maker insurance tailored to you.

What cover should I consider for my cabinetry business?

Public liability and personal accident insurance are key covers for cabinet makers to consider. Together, they can help cover your business for third-party injury, property damage or loss as a result of your handiwork – and offer financial help if you accidentally injure yourself.

Of course, your effects need protection, too. Tools and equipment insurance can help cover the costs of repair or replacement when they’re out of commission.

Frequently asked questions

All tradespeople – plumbers, carpenters, cabinet makers, electricians – work in inherently risky environments. As a cabinet maker, the tools you use can cause serious injury or damage if they’re mishandled. And even the most careful cabinet makers make mistakes.

Outside of the shop, a faulty screw or affixer could cause your handiwork to harm somebody (or damage their property) long after the process is complete.

And what if it’s you who is injured or harmed? If you’re unable to work, the right protection can help cover loss of income or medical bills while you recover.

Comprehensive coverage is a boon for any business – but it’s important to have cover that’s right for yours.

We recommend sole traders take out personal accident insurance in case they suffer a serious injury or death as the result of an accident.

Sole traders may be unable to take time off for injury, limiting their ability to maintain a stable income. Personal accident insurance covers loss of income and can provide financial cover for bills and other expenses.

Contractors with employees may need to consider arranging workers compensation insurance. This covers an employee's wages if they suffer a serious work-related injury or their compensation costs in the case of death.

We strongly recommend considering professional indemnity insurance if you provide advice or design services to your clients.

Professional indemnity insurance can cover your business for allegations of negligence involving a breach of professional duty. This is typically excluded under public liability insurance.

It depends.

If a subcontractor injures a third party or damages their property, they may be covered by their client’s public liability policy.

However, if a subcontractor is negligent and leaves their tools out, causing a third party to trip and injure themselves, then this claim may need to be made under the subcontractor’s policy.

As such, we strongly recommend subcontractors consider arranging their own public liability insurance to be appropriately covered.
