Checkatrade members save 20% on specialist insurance with Covea

As a tradesperson, you need insurance. And if you join Checkatrade, you'll get 20% off Insuratrade cover from Covéa. Job done.

The right insurance is as essential as the tools you use to ply your trade. It protects you and your livelihood from the repercussions of an incident, and it covers your clients should anything happen while you’re on site.

But, as you know, insurance can be expensive. So, to help you get covered for less and keep on working, we’ve partnered with Covéa Insurance to give Checkatrade tradespeople 20% off premiums.

20% off insurance created for tradespeople

That’s right, when you join the #1 trade directory in the UK you not only get more business, but a load of benefits too, including exclusive discounts with our trusted partners.

In this case, it’s all-important insurance, but not just any old insurance – we’re talking cover specifically designed for tradespeople.

Whether you’re self-employed or a small business, work alone or manage a team, Insuratrade from Covéa gives you the cover you need and then some:

  • Public Liability
  • Employers’ Liability
  • Tools Cover
  • Up to 10 employees
  • Contractual liability
  • Corporate manslaughter cover
  • Cross liabilities
  • Court attendance costs
  • Indemnity to Principal
  • Free 24 hour Business Legal Helpline
