Builders merchants

Insurance policies designed with builders’ merchants in mind


Builders’ merchants, like all businesses, have risks that they must be prepared for. Dealing with heavy tools and building materials poses so much of a danger to your employees and customers who visit your premises that purchasing robust insurance is not something to be overlooked.


Whether you operate a small local shop or own a chain of building supply stores, Tredstone will help ensure that your business can endure any unexpected problem that comes its way.


The right materials for the job


A liability insurance specialist, Tredstone will help you save time on your search for an effective business insurance policy, making it easy to protect your builders’ merchant business with all the necessary forms of cover. Our team of experts, equipped with years of experience helping businesses of all sizes get properly insured, can help you assess your commercial risks, find the most suitable form of cover at a competitive price, and, therefore, allow you to get on running your company without fear and worry.


As a builders’ merchant, you probably already have a pretty good understanding of how important it is to be supplied with the right materials for the job. After all, as two out of the three little pigs will tell you, using sticks and straw for a project that requires bricks can have disastrous consequences. Likewise, you’re going to want to have the correct insurance products in place that are fit for purpose.


That’s why, at Tredstone, we tailor a policy that is right for you. We take note of your circumstances, concerns, and potential problems and then compare the prices of the most suitable policies using our network of leading UK insurers. This way, we can ensure that you’re getting thoroughly protected at a great price.


The cover that you are most likely to require as a builders’ merchant will include the following:

Public liability insurance

Employers’ liability insurance

Goods in transit cover

Tools and equipment cover

Stock cover

Legal expenses insurance

Business interruption cover
