Why should you trust us to protect your business?

As a specialist, chartered insurance broker, we understand the specific risks associated with joiners and carpenters. From occupational asthma to timber thefts, crushed fingers to amputations. Dovetail gives you effective cover, at the right price, with excellent claims handling.

Our Promise


To listen to you

Joiners and carpenters are as varied as the jobs they take on. So are their businesses, and the risks they face. Dovetail will take the time to find out about your business.

Based on what you tell us, we will create and price a personalised carpenters insurance policy that’s right for you.


To advise you

You wouldn’t expect your customers to take advice from a jack-of-all-trades. Why should insurance be any different?

As chartered insurance brokers, Dovetail has the expertise, ethics and specialist knowledge to make sure your policy is fit for purpose.


To stick with you

If the worst happened, and you were sued by an injured worker, some insurance brokers would leave you to face the claim alone. Not us.

Our dedicated claims team will help you through the entire process. They’ll work to resolve your claim quickly, with minimal hassle, in your best interests.
