Why can’t I insure my job?
Unfortunately, we are no longer able to offer new MyBuilder Plus policies.
How do I make a claim?

We want to make it easy for you to make a claim if something has gone wrong with your job. Simply contact us to register your claim or schedule a callback with one of our team.

We recommend you have all the information to hand about what happened before you contact us to register your claim. Don't worry if you need more time to gather information though. You can still register a claim and we'll provide the support you need to get the process underway.

If you registered a claim online, one of our team will follow up with a call, normally within one business day.

What do you need from me to register a claim?
When you register a claim online or over the phone, we'll ask you to tell us what happened. Take photographs and videos if you think they are relevant and may help us assess your claim. Gather any related invoices, receipts and correspondence. We'll provide you with a way to send files to us if we need them later on.
How long does the claims process take?
Every claim is different. Once your claim is underway, we'll contact you to discuss the details and explain how your claim will progress. There are no fixed timescales for this but we'll always try to make the process as smooth and stress-free as we can.
How long do I have to make a claim?
You have thirty days from the date that work was completed to register a claim.
How will my claim be processed and settled?

We want to settle claims without delay and undue stress to you. We'll always try to assess and validate your claim based on the information we have at hand. In some cases, we may appoint an approved supplier or expert to assess and validate your claim on our behalf.

Once your claim has been accepted, we'll attempt to mediate between you and your tradesperson. Most tradespeople want their customers to be happy and will be keen to resolve any issues amicably. If we're unable to help mediate a successful resolution, we'll quickly move to accept your claim.

Once your claim has been accepted, a member of our in-house team will work closely with you to settle your claim without delay and undue stress.

Why might my claim be declined?
MyBuilder Plus is committed to settling all valid claims, ensuring the job you get is the job you paid for. Like all insurance policies though, your MyBuilder Plus policy documents contain conditions and exclusions which you should review carefully to avoid any misunderstandings.
How do I cancel my policy and get a refund?

We have different refund policies depending on when you want to cancel:

  • Cancellations within 14 days: Providing work has not started, we'll refund your payment in full, in line with your statutory rights.
  • Cancellations after 15 days: We don't issue refunds if you choose to cancel your policy after 15 days have elapsed since purchase.
Contact us if you want to cancel your MyBuilder Plus policy.
What if the tradesperson causes damage to something not covered in the quote?
Your MyBuilder Plus policy covers everything included in the quote, including accidental damage to fixtures and fittings. Accidental damage caused by your tradesperson to anything outside of the quote is not covered. Many tradespeople have public liability insurance which is designed to cover property damage or injury to a member of the public, including customers.
I can't get in touch with my tradesperson, what should I do?
Contact us and we'll do our best to put you back in touch with your tradesperson.
