Contractors Insurance Information

Contractors Insurance

Like any business, independent contractors need insurance to protect themselves financially. What type of insurance you need depends on the type of work you do. Some types of insurance we offer for contractors include the following:

  • Contractors General Liability
  • Contractors Professional Liability
  • Commercial Property Coverage including your building, tools, materials
  • Coverage for leased or rented equipment
  • Builders Risk Coverage
  • Commercial Auto Coverage to protect your fleet
  • Workers Compensation
  • Group Health Programs
  • Umbrella or Excess policies to provide extended coverage
  • Bonds

Contractors have unique business needs. You and your employees spend a lot of time on your customer's premises, working on their homes, commercial buildings or property. Homeowners and business owners expect you to complete your job on time and without incident. Our services can help your business be protected against the unexpected.

As a contractor you send and receive certificates of insurance regularly. We understand how important it is to get certificates issued when you need them.
