Benefits Of Using an Accredited Installer
Accredited Installers can purchase a deposit protection policy to safeguard a deposit payment made to the installer.* The Accredited Installer can also purchase an IBG to protect you in the event your installer ceases to trade and is unable to honour their written workmanship guarantee.
All installers purchasing IBG’s are vetted and accredited prior to membership approval and undergo regular checks during their period of membership. These checks consist of the following:
Background checks against the directors / proprietors
Credit history checks against the company;
Financial stability checks against the company;
Checks for evidence of installation qualifications;
Checks they carry both Public and Employers liability insurances (Not applicable for all sole traders)
*These are just some of the cover limits and features of the insurance policies that we can arrange. We are not the insurer and cover is subject to the insurers full policy terms and conditions. Not all selected installers can purchase deposit protection.
