Contractor Insurance Quotes: The Coverage You Need To Protect Your Business
As an independent contractor, having the right insurance coverage is crucial.
Contractors work in many different locations on a daily basis. They work with many people and on varying tasks throughout each workday.
If you asked a contractor what a typical day was like, they’d probably laugh! After all, in the life of a contractor, no day is ever the same as the last.
Many tradespeople find this unpredictable environment exciting. But it also carries some hefty risks.
In just seconds, you could damage your business reputation and profit!
Common On-Site Risks Every Contractor Faces:
- General Liability
- Property Damage
To reduce these risks, our Mackay brokers recommend investing in Contractor Insurance.
What Is Contractor Insurance? Why Do You Need It?
Contractor insurance is a broad term. It refers to a variety of coverages - both mandatory and optional.
In Ontario, all contractors must,
a) Carry commercial general liability insurance, and
b) Hold a valid contractor insurance policy.
This protects you and your business against third-party injury and property damage claims.
What happens if you do not carry this general liability insurance?
Without it, you are not permitted to run a business in Ontario.
Other contractor insurance coverages are optional. This means you can add them to your general liability policy.
These coverages vary according to your unique business. So they may or may not apply to your specific industry.
Some of these add-on coverages include:
- Installation Floaters
- Builders Risk
- Tool Floaters
- Performance Bonds
- Contractors Surety Bonds
