Carpenters Insurance

Whether you work on site or in a workshop, carpenters have different insurance needs from other trades, which is why CGU’s insurance options are designed accommodate the uniqueness of carpentry to ensure that you’re not paying for insurance you don’t need.

Public and Products Liability Insurance

Any carpenter’s workshop or site is a minefield of potential dangers that can ruin a business, which is why Public and Product Liability Insurance isn’t only a good idea, but is also required for many contractors to even set foot on site.

Public Liability Insurance protects you against legal liability arising out of property damage or personal injury to a third party as a result of your work.

Products Liability insurance is designed to protect you from claims of injury or damage arising from work you’ve done.


Damage or loss of tools can cripple a carpenter’s business, which is why specialist tool cover is an essential asset of the wise chippie.

Portable Electronic Goods

Whether you’re making and taking phone calls, checking blueprints or sending emails via smart phones, tablets and laptops, electronic devices are vital tools in the carpenter’s kit. Portable Electronic Goods cover allows you to swiftly replace lost or stolen electronic devices.

Commercial Motor

Your vehicle is perhaps your most valuable work tool, so Commercial Motor Insurance is essential to make sure you’re still able to get around should your vehicle be damaged or stolen.
