What is locksmith insurance?
Locksmith insurance is there to protect your business from a wide range of financial risks.

Other important types of protection to be aware of include public liability cover and employers’ liability insurance.

Do I need locksmith insurance?
No matter how careful you are, things can go wrong when you’re working as a locksmith. And if they do, it’s important that you’re prepared. For example, what if you accidentally cause damage to a customer’s door jamb? Or perhaps a passer-by trips over your tool bag and injures themselves.
In situations like these, you might find yourself subject to costly legal claims. Could you afford to cover the legal fees and possible compensation costs out of your own pocket? Or what if the tools you rely on to do your job are stolen, lost or damaged? Would you be able to replace them if you didn’t have equipment insurance in place?
If your finances would come under significant pressure in scenarios like these, it’s essential that you have suitable locksmith insurance in place.
Also, if you hire employees to work for your business, you are legally required to take out employers’ liability insurance. Bear in mind that this applies even if your workers are temporary or part-time. You could face a fine of £2,500 for every day that you lack this type of locksmith liability insurance.
By making sure that you have the right cover in place, you can reduce the risks to your business and benefit from enhanced peace of mind.
