Commercial Insurance Solutions for the Scaffolding and Construction Industries

If you work in the construction industry or any sector that involves the use of scaffolding rigs, you already know how important it is to get the right insurance. These are high-risk industries, not just for your team but potentially for your clients and any passers-by. Working at heights brings automatic risks to any business, and these need to be adequately covered by a suitable insurance policy.

Here at Ascott Insurance, we bring decades of experience in commercial insurance to every project, with special consideration to our valued clients in the construction and scaffolding sectors. We are not just first-class insurance brokers; we are also proud members of the Scaffolding Association and specialists in providing tailored insurance solutions for construction companies across the UK.

Common problems finding the right commercial insurance

In the years we have been in business, Ascott Insurance has worked with hundreds of construction and scaffolding companies nationwide. We understand, better than anyone, the problems you encounter when searching for the best package for you and your business. These are just some of the most common issues, based on extensive feedback from our former and current clients:

Expensive Insurance

One of the biggest concerns for any scaffolding or construction firm is the cost of insurance. It’s a potentially high-risk business; you know that, and so do the insurers. Getting a good rate on your insurance without skimping on coverage can be difficult unless you have the right experience and expertise to negotiate a deal.

Right Type Of Cover

Lots of things can go wrong in the construction and scaffolding industries—everything from accidental damage to buildings and equipment to injuries to staff and passers-by to theft of tools and other assets. Does your current insurance package cover all of those eventualities, or are you leaving yourself exposed?

Employee Injuries

Scaffolding and construction jobs can be high-risk, which is why you follow all relevant health and safety guidance and hire workers you can trust to do the same. Sometimes accidents happen, despite these precautions. If someone gets injured at work, how can you make sure they get the help they need and the compensation they deserve?

Damage to Vehicles or Property

If your work vehicles break down or your equipment is damaged, how do you complete your current project on time and under budget? If something goes wrong on site and the property is damaged, how can you afford to pay for the repairs?
