Skip Hire Liability

Despite very few underwriters quoting on this specialised area of protection, Avis Insurance has for many years been providing skip-hire liability insurance. All of our skip liability policies satisfy local authority requirements up to £10 million. This level of cover is a requirement of local authorities if you leave your skips on the public highway.

Public liability insurance and skip-hire insurance are absolutely essential to avoid the possibility of putting your business in financial jeopardy. It protects you for your actions whilst at work and covers you and your employees for any damages that a member of the public or any other company may be awarded as a result of injury caused to them or for any damage to their property. Liability insurance will cover costs for compensation payments as well as any legal expenses.

In addition to providing peace of mind, if you are an employer you are legally obliged to have employers’ liability cover. Employers liability insurance protects you against claims that might be brought against you should an employee or labour only sub-contractor injure themselves at work due to your negligence.
