Contractors’ Insurance

Contractors face a variety of risks, from the moment they take on a project to the final finishing touch. You’ll want to stay protected through the course of any contracting project with our custom and comprehensive contractors’ insurance policy.

Who needs contractors’ insurance?

Our comprehensive contractors’ insurance policies can cater to a variety of sectors, including:

From equipment damage to bodily injury, major issues can arise during the course of construction. As a contractor, you can’t count on someone else looking out for your best interests – you have to protect yourself with smart coverage in case something goes wrong.

We know different types of contractors are exposed to different kinds of risks. We’ve crafted separate policies to align with the needs of each of these contracting subsectors. Click the links to the left for a closer look into what the policy can offer your business.

What does contractors’ insurance cover?

Our policies feature coverages like:

  • Equipment Floater
  • Errors & Omissions
  • Non-owned Automobile
  • Installation Floater

Without the right insurance, contractors can face significant expenses, like major equipment replacement costs and legal fees that come with liability claims.

Our insurance products for contractors include some of the most important coverages to safeguard your tools and equipment, cover errors or omissions in your work, and keep your employees protected when they’re on the road.

Contracting work can be complex, so we include other important coverages in your policy, including:

  • Property Insurance
  • Contractor’s Equipment and Tools Insurance
  • Business Income Insurance
  • Equipment Breakdown Coverage
  • Crime Coverage
  • Inland Marine Insurance
  • Commercial Automobile Coverage
  • Commercial General Liability Insurance
  • Excess Liability Insurance
  • Directors & Officers Insurance

How can our contractors’ insurance help your company?

See how our other contractors’ insurance coverages can come to your rescue, whether you’re a general contractor or work in a specific trade.

Our brokers and underwriters understand contracting businesses and the evolving exposures in the industry. That’s why our policies go further.

We provide extended coverage for contractors’ automobiles, equipment, and legal liabilities – coverage you won’t find in all business insurance policies. For instance, a general policy may not cover you if improperly loaded construction materials were to fly out of the back of your company pick-up truck and injure the driver behind you. Our contractors’ insurance coverage would apply in this situation.
