For plumbers and heating engineers, with clients and projects changing from one day to the next, there is always a risk of accidents happening or things going wrong occasionally. From servicing a home boiler, replacing old or damaged pipework through to a commercial bathroom fit-out, there's much more to plumbing than many people may realise. Your tools and equipment could get lost or stolen. Worse still, a pipe could burst and flood the home or construction site you work in.
Whether you’re running a business with a team of plumbers and fleet of vans, or are a sole trader working in the local community, Gallagher offers a range of plumber insurance solutions to meet your needs.
