CHAS and Towergate unite to launch ‘industry first’ insurance service that rewards careful contractors and tradespeople

CHAS has joined forces with Towergate to introduce CHAS Protect, an innovative insurance service designed specifically for contractors and tradespeople, that rewards careful contractors.

Applying CHAS’s experience in supply chain risk management and Towergate’s proficiency as a specialist business insurance broker, this collaboration aims to provide CHAS members with a bespoke insurance offering that recognises their commitment to operating responsibly. 

The lower risk profile associated with holding CHAS accreditation grants CHAS members access to contractor-friendly insurance premiums and customised policy enhancements under the CHAS Protect policy. This comprehensive coverage spans business, tools, equipment, and vehicles and features exclusive additional perks for CHAS members. These include extended ‘new for old’ replacement for stolen or damaged equipment, complimentary tax advice, and 24-hour legal support as well as mental health support for both business owners and their employees.  

At a time when the economic climate is extremely challenging and the cost of claims is soaring due to rising labour and material costs, CHAS Protect is designed to help CHAS contractors to safeguard their business, tools, vehicles and livelihood.

Commenting on the launch of CHAS Protect, Alex Minett, Head of New Global Markets at CHAS, says: “This partnership between CHAS and Towergate marks true innovation in the industry, offering insurance products tailored to reward our CHAS members’ lower risk profiles. The contractor-friendly premiums and personalised policy enhancements showcase one of the many ways CHAS adds value to its members as part of their accreditation.”

Towergate’s Managing Director of Affinity Partnerships, Paul Buckle adds, “It’s not every day you get the chance to support a leading risk management company in delivering real industry innovation. We have worked closely with CHAS to deliver an insurance service which recognises the lower risk profile of CHAS members and is tailored to them.”
