Who’s Behind Gas Safety Insurance

All good things come in three don’t they, and that’s the same with us. Gas Safety Insurance is the brainchild of three of the industry’s biggest hitters – Gas Safety Shop, Viper Gas and Trade Direct Insurance. We all have many years’ experience, expertise and technical knowhow in our own areas, and now we’ve combined all that to help provide you with the protection you and your business need

Gas Safety Shop are one of the largest suppliers of licensed Gas Safe Register products. Being the original licensee to the Gas Safe Register, their product range has grown to include certificate pads, safety labels, stationery, workwear, safety publications, consumables, analysers, tools and more. You can purchase at any time on their website & nearly all stock orders received before 2pm are sent off the same working day for next working day delivery (subject to terms & conditions).


With over 20 years’ experience, are the gas industry leaders for supplying technical publications for the domestic, commercial and LPG market sectors. They also offer online solutions for the latest technical bulletins and safety alerts when issued by the Gas Safe Register. They have over 50,000 registered members and are trusted by some of the industry’s leading organisations like Worcester Bosch Group, Npower, Siemens, Miele, Indesit, Kier and more.

Trade Direct Insurance

With over 30 years’ experience, and in excess of 40,000 tradesmen and tradeswomen currently insured, Trade Direct Insurance are a leading provider of insurance policies to plumbing, heating and gas engineers, as well as the wider trade and construction industries. They pride themselves on their level of service to you during your whole time with them – from getting a quote, through buying a policy and after, should you ever need to make a claim.

Why We Created Gas Safety Insurance

We know there are plenty of insurance options out there for plumbing, heating and gas engineers – from comparison sites to high street brokers and everything in between - but what we believe has been missing is the ability for you to create a policy that works specifically for you. With our combined expertise, knowledge and experience, we’ve worked hard to offer you all the options we believe you should need, and we’ve also ensured that it’s as simple as possible to get a quote and buy your cover. It might be a cliché, but we know that your time is money, and we don’t want to waste either.

The Insurers We Work With

On top of public liability insurance and van insurance, we can offer many more insurance products to help keep you and your business protected. In order to provide the breadth and depth of cover you need, and to keep the prices as competitive as possible across the whole range of products, we work with a number of the UK’s biggest insurance companies. Buying your business insurance is an important decision, and knowing your cover is backed by a major insurer should result in one less worry. Some of the insurers we work with are:

Aviva – Axa – Allianz – NIG - Ageas – QBE - Zurich – RSA – LV – Covea – Equity Red Star – DAS
