We are constantly evolving our eTrading proposition based on the needs and feedback of our brokers.

Our Tradesman eProduct now accepts an additional 45 trades such as: Electrical Engineers, Electronic Engineers, Electronic Equipment Servicing, Joinery, Plumbing and Heating Engineers, and Woodworking.  

A number of these newly accepted trades are only available via our award-winning online trading platform, TheHub. These include Conservatory Erectors, Garden Services, Stone Cladding and Vending Machine Servicers.

We’ve also increased our height limit without the need to refer from 12 metres to 15 metres, making it even easier to bind business.

Our Tradesman policy is designed for traditional building and allied trade businesses whose turnover is up to £1,000,000 and covers up to 15 full time workers.

Speak to us in the best way for you

If you trade via TheHub, you have access to Web Chat (which over 90% of our brokers rate as 4 out of 5 for experience)*.

This service has been enhanced to include team-to-team transfer, an internal conversation rating system, and co-browse functionality which allows underwriters to see the screen you are viewing so we can guide you through TheHub quote and buy journey.

Or, if you would like to speak to one of our underwriters at our eTrading Centre please contact: 


NB During busy call periods we’ll even do the queuing for you with our innovative new solution Queue For Me. The system enables you to keep your place in the queue without having to stay on the telephone. Once you get to the front of the queue, we’ll call you back.
