What is a Deposit Protection Insurance?
Usually before an installation commences, consumers make an upfront deposit payment to the trades person. In the event that the trades person ceases to trade before the installation has either begun or has been completed, usually the money that they have paid is lost. Our Deposit Protection provides valuable cover to help prevent this from occurring.
Deposits can be protected up to 25% of the installation contract value or £5,000 (whichever is lesser).*
Deposit protection lasts for up to 90 days from the contract signed date.*
