Much of the construction industry is meticulously planned and heavily regulated, but things can go wrong. With most jobs involving hands-on skilled work that carries various risks, construction companies and tradespeople need to have the right insurance.

Therefore, protecting yourself, your employees, your tools and your reputation is paramount. Unfortunately, damaged or stolen tools, workplace accidents, aggrieved customers, misunderstood plans and contract differences are not rarities. As such, they can prove to be very costly setbacks.

“Eley Insurance provide competitive prices and excellent all round service. Nothing is too much trouble for them which is why we return year after year for all our insurance cover. They take care of everything from quotes to claims. I can’t recommend them highly enough.”

Caroline, Operations Director

“We have worked with Eley Insurance for many years and receive the very best advice and service. We have a great deal of comfort in knowing our insurance portfolio is perfectly aligned with the requirements of our business, allowing us to focus on our trade without distraction.”


“We have been with Eley Insurance Services for the past three years and have now moved all of our policies over to them as they have proved much more competitive than our previous providers and like-for-like quotes.  They now handle our Combined Liability, Contractors All Risks, Office and Directors insurance and PI insurance.  Apart from the monetary savings, what stands out for us is the speedy response to queries.”

Paul, Director at a roofing and cladding company

“It took a lot to drag me away from my previous brokers. We had been with them for many years and trusted their service.  However, mainly due to price but also some useful advice I decided to take the plunge in March 2018 and move to Eley Insurance Services. I have been extremely satisfied with the service – from helping with form completion and general advice to the handling of a claim we unfortunately had to make earlier this year.  They look after our fleet insurance, Employers Liability, Public Liability and Products Liability.”

Steve, Managing Director at a scaffolding contractors

“I run a small business but I have had an excellent service from Eley Insurance.  They have paid great attention to detail in my liability policy needs and excluded elements that were unnecessarily included before.  I needed a bit of hand holding and they were able to guide me and save me money, very satisfied.”
