Contractors

Contractor's insurance is an umbrella term encompassing insurance policies designed to protect general contractors, contractors, and subcontractors on the job. Some of the many types of contractors include:

  • Plumbers
  • Electricians
  • Heating & Air Conditioning firms
  • Landscapers
  • Excavators
  • Janitorial Service providers
  • Carpenters
  • and more

Contractors Insurance is absolutely necessary for contractors. Depending on how many general contractors and subcontractors you work with, you may hold several contractors for any given job. If it’s not a real accident, it’s someone claiming to have one, and the cost alone of a lawyer to defend a contractor can be enough to put a business out. Fortunately, your local insurance representatives can help by making sure you've got the proper coverage for your business, and reviewing any legal agreements.

Contractors may also be interested in covering themselves against computer damage and/or office contents insurance.

Business Owners

Business owners insurance is often the most convenient way of protecting your business's physical and financial assets. A business owner’s policy combines property insurance, liability insurance, crime coverage and additional protection into one convenient package. (We also sell coverages separately).  Business insurance is a necessity for even the smallest company in order to protect and maintain its financial health.

We specialize in providing both large and small businesses with the following bonds:

  • Performance – to guarantee the performance of contractually agreed upon work
  • Bid – guarantees the beginning of work following the winning of a bid
  • Indemnity – guarantees any losses should a party fail to meet deadlines
  • Payment – promises payment to all sub-contractors and vendors
  • License – a bond guaranteed to a state or federal agency

Workers Compensation

In its simplest form, the workers comp system strives to be the most effective process available to get an injured worker back to the workforce as soon as possible. It provides the employee with peace of mind; reassuring them that if an on-site accident did happen to occur, they would receive appropriate medical attention—without the heightened cost. The right workers compensation insurance package will help protect your employees in the event of injury or illness during the course of employment.
