Make Sure You’re Properly Protected

Not all insurance policies are the same – so you may need expert help before you buy.

Having appropriate liability insurance is an important part of your NICEIC or ELECSA registration. When it comes to buying your essential electrical contractors insurance, focusing solely on finding the cheapest option may be a mistake. Price is important of course, but getting the right cover is vital – after all, cheap insurance can be a false economy if it doesn’t offer the protection you need when it really matters.

Is it really worth leaving your business exposed, and your livelihood at risk?


Using Comparison Sites vs Getting Advice From an Insurance Specialist

Just as there’s a world of difference between working with a registered electrician and relying on a helpful amateur, finding insurance to provide cover for your individual needs – the right cover at the right price – may mean you need to call on expert help.

When using comparison sites or some direct insurers they usually require you to know exactly what you need in order to get a quote, as they don’t typically provide advice. However, if you call on the advice and support from insurance specialists who understand your typical needs as a registered NICEIC or ELECSA contractor, you can be safe in the knowledge you have the cover you need.


Help to Understand Your Needs

Advice and support is exactly what you can expect from us at NICEIC and ELECSA Insurance Services.  The first step is to assess your specific needs, because the exact cover you need will always depend on the nature of your business.

Our team will advise you on the protection you need. This includes the important cover you need as an electrical contractor, such as public liability and professional indemnity insurance.

But it also means helping you to work out whether you also need employers liability insurance if you have other people working for you, as well as cover for business premises, van, and tools – even cover like personal accident and income protection insurance.
