What is Scaffolding Insurance and what does it cover?
Scaffolding is a specialist trade within the construction industry, but naturally due to the nature of your services, accidents and claims do happen, and quite a lot! The Health and Safety Executive confirmed that Falls from Height are one of the most common causes of death in the workplace according to Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations. As such understanding where your liability stops and starts as a Scaffolder is important.
Whether you are a sole trader, or a larger scaffolding contractor, your insurance is vital to you what do as a business. If it has not been arranged correctly, it could not only prevent you from securing work as a scaffolder, but the liability claims you could face would be financially devasting to you, and business.

What Our Clients Say
"We are a broker ourselves and know expectations are high in this competitive industry. We approached Holmes IB following a recommendation for some of our own insurance policies.
Dealing with Steve Holmes has been great. Competitive terms provided but with the added real personal touch that was missing from what we had before. Shortly after Holmes' appointment for our policies, we encountered a couple of difficult situations. The understanding, advice, guidance and direction we received exceeded our expectations and not only helped us with dealing with these matters but reassured us at the time too. Above and beyond!"

"Sometimes in life you come across people that bring back your faith in humanity. In a world of algorithms (computer says no) and 'we don't want to speak to you' big corporate businesses - finding Holmes Insurance Brokers was truly joyful. Yes, I never thought I'd be so gushing about an insurance broker! Cannot recommend Stephen and his company highly enough. If you want someone who genuinely cares and will actually talk to you (and get the best deal for you/your business) then get in touch. If I could have given six stars I would - thank you Stephen..”

Startup Business - Insurance made easy
Starting a new business is hard enough without the challenge of finding the right insurance, especially when you don't fit into a 'standard' category that all the insurance websites insist on. Luckily I found Stephen (Holmes Insurance) at a start up seminar. Stephen has managed to save me money and get me cover that is tailored to my business. His service is first class and I would strongly recommend that anyone in business locally talks to him - you have nothing to lose but a lot to gain. Thanks for all your help.
Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness, Value
As the MD of a training business that supports the Insurance sector. I have always preached about the value of a good insurance broker; the advise they give to the general public when it comes to their insurance needs.
This was the first time I had a chance to personally experience it. Stephen from Holmes Insurance Broker has been truly exceptional! Really a positive testament to what a good Insurance broker should be like, great service! All the best to the Vegan broker!
