How To Save On Tools Insurance

The best ways to save on tools insurance are to use an independent broker such as your local Coversure, as they can do the shopping around for you and don’t make any claims.   To avoid making claims, protect your equipment by:

  • Keeping your tools stored securely at night
  • Increasing the security of your van – extra locks and internal CCTV is a good idea
  • Marking your tools with your details using invisible/UV ink
  • Registering your tools’ serial numbers online.  The police find recovering unregistered tools difficult, so registering them to a database can help should they be stolen

The best way to find out how much protection you need is to contact your local Coversure. They’ll be able to advise you as to what you need and create a package of Tools cover for you.
