Sole Trader Insurance

Sole traders are often more vulnerable to a wider range of insurance risks due to the nature of their work. Alan & Thomas has over 40 years experience in the insurance industry, protecting sole traders against the unexpected.

There are a number of common pitfalls that any sole trader should be prepared for - an accident on your premises, poor advice given to a client or the loss/theft of valuable equipment to name a few. Don't let your business bear the brunt of these costs, a policy sourced by Chartered Insurance Brokers Alan & Thomas can protect you against these eventualities.

Our expert insurance advisors can source policies from a wide selection of highly respected insurers, with a focus on public liability insurance, employers' liability insurance, professional indemnity insurance and personal accident cover for sole traders.

Regardless of what sector of the market your business is involved in, Alan & Thomas can source an insurance package that is guaranteed to give peace of mind, allowing you to focus on the more important areas of your business. We can carry out a comprehensive assessment of your insurance requirements to find a policy that suits you as an invidividual, identifying the key areas that your business will need to protect.

As a sole trader, your assets are more exposed to risk because your liability is unlimited, meaning that you need to take as many steps as you can to protect yourself and your business. We have a proven track record of helping hundreds of satisfied clients in this area of their business, including carpet cleaners, decorators, gas engineers, gardeners and many more.

  • Bespoke levels of cover
  • Underwritten by carefully selected panel of the UK's leading insurers
  • Dedicated insurance specialist to guide you through the process
