The plumbing profession in the Ontario area is without a doubt faced with a variety of risks on any given day. Just one slight and simple mistake could result in a major lawsuit that could potentially shut down most small contractors.
This is why it is imperative to ensure that you, your employees, and your business are protected with a plumbing insurance policy. Not only do we offer unique policies for all plumbers in the Ontario area, but also our highly trained agents can help you customize your policy to suit your very specific needs and risks.
What Can You Expect To Pay?
There are a variety of factors that can really affect the overall cost of your plumbing insurance. Sure, some companies might have to pay a bit more based on their coverage needs, but this insurance is without a doubt a necessity for any plumbing contractor. Plumbers with higher exposure and claims history can expect to pay more. If you are just recently filed a huge claim, you can certainly expect to pay more than a contractor who has never filed a claim before.
Know The Basic Types Of Plumbing Insurance Coverages
While there are a variety of policies available, there are some basic policies that every plumbing contractor could benefit from. These are general liability insurance and commercial auto insurance. In fact, the law might require you to invest in these two policies before you even legally open fro business.
- General Liability Insurance – GL insurance is a type of liability insurance that provides basic coverage against lawsuits and other financial risks that are the result of a mishap or error on your part. For instance, if you drop a wrench off a ladder and knock a customers tooth out, this policy would cover any medical expenses or lawsuits that ensued.
- Commercial Auto Insurance – Any vehicle that is used for business related purposes would need to be covered under commercial auto insurance. Some of our policies might have coverage limits, but we can ensure everything from the van you use to the trailer you use to haul equipment.
Do You Need Other Policies as Plumber?
Unfortunately, these won’t be the only policies that most plumbing contractors need. Most plumbing contractors will also need business owner’s policy insurance and worker’s compensation insurance.
- Business Owner’s Policy – This is a bundled package that can be customized by our staff. For instance, you can combine general liability insurance with commercial auto insurance, and personal property insurance.
- Worker’s Compensation Insurance – This coverage helps cover medical losses and a portion of lost wages that are experienced by employees, who are injured on the job.
