Builder Trailer insurance from just £90!

Do I need separate builder trailer insurance?

You should take out dedicated trailer insurance for your own peace of mind if you use a trailer as part of your business to carry out contract works.

While not a legal liability, it should be an element of your annual business insurance portfolio and your trailer cover can complement any public liability insurance you have in place.   

Most comprehensive car and van insurance policies only cover trailers for third party liability.

It means you would be covered for any injury to a third party or damage to their property, but your policy would not pay out if your trailer was damaged in an accident that was your fault. You would also not be covered for theft or fire damage.

Sterling’s insurance for trailers can solve these issues. So call us, our best deals are available over the phone.
