Here are some of the options you may want to consider. Pick only what you need. We're flexible.
Public liability insurance
Working in public spaces makes you more likely to experience an incident involving a member of the public. Unfortunately, 'slippery surface' signs aren't enough to prevent all accidents. Choose from £1m, £2m, or £5m cover.
Contents and equipment
Specialist equipment isn't always easy to come by - nor is it cheap to replace. We offer up to £20,000 equipment cover.
This one's mandatory if you have any employees at all, whether full or part time. It'll protect your business against costs arising from an employee's injury or damage to their property while carrying out work. We offer up to £10 million cover.
Surprised to see this? It's not specifically for tech businesses. Basically, if your business contacts customers using email, or holds personal data, you should consider cyber insurance.
Just need to insure your tools and equipment?
At Superscript, we offer special cover for just the tools and equipment of your trade. You won't be tied into taking out any other covers in your policy so you only pay for what you need.
As a professional window cleaner, you can get simple, flexible cover for vital tools and items of business equipment such as:
- Extendable ladders
- Water pumps
- Pulley systems
- Ropes and harness
- Telescopic scrubbers and squeegees
- Laptop and phone

Window cleaning business insurance FAQs
As a business that involves working in public spaces (and in proximity to non-employees), you'll likely need to have public liability insurance, at a minimum. This covers you for legal and compensation costs if a member of the public were to sue you due to injury or damage caused by your business activities.
If you have any employees, you'll need employers' liability cover too, which is a legal requirement in the UK, for all businesses with employees.
This is all down to how many covers you choose for your business. Our cover starts from £5.00 per month. Find out more about factors that influence the cost of business insurance.
Yes, our cover is suitable for jobs at both domestic and commercial sites.
No, most business insurance is not required by law. The exception to this is employers' liability cover, which is required by law for any business with employees.
