Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

Last updated: 27th March 2020

Following the Government’s announcement asking everyone to stay at home, we’re making some changes to the way we work to make sure we’re looking after our people and our customers. We’re setting up as many of our colleagues as possible to work from home, but this will take a few days.

In the short-term, we’re only accepting new business online. That means new customers can’t buy insurance over the phone.

Existing customers: Please don’t phone unless it’s absolutely necessary.

We need to prioritise:

  • Customers who have an urgent claim, for example your car is undrivable following an accident, you are injured, or your home is uninhabitable.
  • Customers who can’t pay now as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, call us - we want to help you.

If you have questions about your renewal or want to make a change to your policy, you can use our virtual assistant. If your policy is due to renew in the next week and you haven’t opted for auto-renewal, please call us. If you have opted for auto-renewal, please make sure your insurance still meets your needs.

For more information and frequently asked questions about COVID-19, go to our Coronavirus help and support page.

Builders Public Liability Insurance

Churchill’s flexible Builders Public Liability Insurance provides self-employed tradesmen with reliable, cost‐effective cover that suits their individual circumstances. It’s time to fix the roof while the sun shines, and take out Builders Insurance that’s there when you need it.

Why do builders need to take cover?

As a builder, you have to manage a range of risks every day. Accidents happen, and in your line of work the results can be costly, particularly if they involve a legal claim for compensation. Build your business upon firm foundations by taking out a Builders Insurance policy that keeps you covered against the most likely mishaps.

Is Builders Public Liability Insurance compulsory?

While Public Liability Insurance for builders is not legally compulsory, it’s widely considered essential in the industry. Very few (if any) public‐sector organisations or large companies will work with an uninsured builder, so by not getting cover, you’re not only putting yourself at significant financial risk, you could also miss out on valuable work.

How much does Builders Insurance cost?

The cost of Builders Public Liability Insurance depends on various factors, from the type and scale of the projects you carry out to your personal preferences and requirements. The best way to find out the cost of your premiums is to get a tailored Builders Public Liability Insurance quote today.
