Why Carpenters Need Insurance

Many self-employed carpenters and tradies are required to have insurance cover before they can enter certain job sites. Consider the damage a personal injury and/or property damage claim could do to your business, not just financially, but it reputationally. Many contractual obligations ask for at least minimal public liability insurance. On average, a standard $1million to $2million general liability insurance policy for a small carpentry business can cost $47 to $59 a month. A price worth paying for protection for those working in the carpentry trades.

Plus, insurance is part of good business management for anyone in the carpentry trades.

Common Risks That Can be Protected With Insurance

    • Injury or illness (sickness/accident/workers comp insurance)
    • Stolen, damaged or lost tools (tool theft, loss or damage cover)


  • Finished products unsuitable (product liability)
