What is a Contractors All Risk Insurance policy?

by | Jul 10, 2014 | Contractors All Risk | 0 comments

A Contractors All Risk Insurance Policy is a policy which insures the principal/ employer and covers the contract works undertaken by the contractor and sub contractors.

CivilSure offers 2 types of Contractors All Risk Insurance policy:

1. Contractors All Risk Once Off

This Contractors All Risk Insurance policy is taken on a once-off basis. When you are awarded a tender, we will provide you with quote for cover on that specific project based on it’s value and risks.  The cover will end when the project is complete.

2. Contractors All Risk Annual

This Contractors All Risk Insurance policy is slightly more comprehensive than the once off policy. You will be quoted on your Annual Projection and Maximum Contract Value. The Contractors All Risk Insurance policy will cover all your projects undertaken in the year of the policy inception. The premium is generally lower than the Contractors All Risk Once Off policy if you work it out annually.
